Students are assessed on enrolment at the IEC to determine which course is suitable for their needs. The student’s educational background and existing English competence are considered when determining placement in the IEC. Three main pathways are available:
- Two year course for students from a limited schooling background.
- One year course for students who have not had any interruptions to their primary schooling.
- Six month course for students with advanced standing. Graduation ceremonies are held every 6 months.
