Academic English Programs for International Students and Law Students

Suffolk University provides many programs to support students' needs in learning or improving their English skills. Support is offered through rigorous English and core content courses, intensive advising, and faculty outreach.

The INTO Suffolk Advantage

Suffolk University works with INTO University Partnerships to create academic entry options and support systems for international students. Our Academic English, International Year One, and Graduate Pathway programs help international students transition to a U.S. degree program. Students enter a fully integrated program where they learn alongside their American peers to earn academic credits toward their Suffolk degree while developing their English skills. Upon successfully completing the Pathway program, students then progress to a Suffolk degree program.

Students receive: 

  • Personalized academic, language, and cultural support
  • Free airport pickup upon arrival in Boston
  • Orientation activities to help them acclimate to Boston 
  • Housing support to help them find the right place to live
  • Tutoring and language support to encourage success
  • Social activities and trips with other students
