English for International Students

The primary mission of the English for International Students program is to support the academic life of international graduate students at Duke. We provide resources to:

  • Help students succeed in their academic programs,
  • Build a community that actively seeks the intellectual and cultural contributions of international students and scholars, and
  • Help those students and scholars be fully participating members of the academic community and become global ambassadors for Duke.

Note: EIS plays no role in the admissions process and we do not administer the TOEFL. Rather, our contact with international graduate students begins once you arrive at Duke. See the Admissions section of the website for Graduate School application requirements, including those for international students.
