English for International Students

The mission of the English for International Students program is to provide English-language instruction and support to international graduate and professional students at Duke. Through offering courses and other resources in writing, oral communication, presentations, pronunciation, and grammar as well as training for new international teaching assistants, we prepare students for success in social, professional, and academic settings.

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