Since 2006, INTO has been offering high-quality programs in partnership with some of the best British and American universities. The majority of INTO centers are located on a campus, which allows students to be members of the university (like any other full-time student) and therefore benefit from all its infrastructures. All classrooms in the INTO centers are equipped with the latest technology; moreover, teachers are highly qualified and have years of experience teaching English as a second language.
INTO centers prepare students to integrate the higher education system. They not only teach them the language but also all the skills that are necessary to thrive in a university context: analytical thinking, essay-writing, research methods, presentation and debating skills, just to cite a few. About 90% of INTO students are accepted in a British or American university.
INTO offers many programs adapted to various student profiles. Studying in the UK or in the USA can be expensive, which is why INTO also offer scholarships to the most deserving students.
