We’ll Help You Improve your English

If you’re not sure that your English language skills are strong enough, don’t worry – we can help you improve them. There are several ways to measure and improve your English skills before and during your studies at IU:

The Importance of Having an International Profile

In today’s increasingly globalised world, we are more connected than ever, and physical distances can be covered with the click of a button. This offers a great wealth of opportunities, as jobs and knowledge from around the world become readily available for anyone, anywhere around the world.

But it also poses some challenges, as competition becomes fiercer and the list of skills that employees need to develop increases. That is why having a strong international work profile is so important.

By having proven English language skills, international work experience, familiarity with other cultures and a demonstrated ability to work independently and in a flexible manner, you’ll show future employers that you can take on challenging tasks in an international context, with a wide range of responsibilities.

You’ll be eligible for more jobs around the globe, increase your chances of earning a promotion and a pay raise and have access to more internship and training opportunities when starting out your professional journey. In the later stages of your career, having an English-taught degree from an international university can improve your chances of being promoted to a managerial position, or taking on managerial tasks and responsibilities.

And with an internationally recognised degree, you have better chances of finding a position overseas – a great way to develop your skills, build a global network, challenge yourself and experience something new.

It also offers a strong defence from the fluctuations and changes in the job market; with a global skillset and profile, it’ll be easier for you to find a job even in difficult times, thanks to your ability to fulfil positions anywhere on the globe.

Learn A New Language while Studying – Not Just English

As a student at IU, you can improve more than just your English. Some of our study programmes offer the opportunity to earn ECTS points for learning a new language.
