Foreign Students

IUSV does not offer visa services to prospective students from other countries or English language services. IUSV does not offer English as a Second Language instruction. All instruction occurs in English.

English Proficiency

Our programs are taught in English language. Therefore, it is imperative that the student has sufficient language skills. IUSV assesses the English proficiency of students by requiring that they complete a Writing Assessment Essay. The essay is evaluated by faculty trained in assessing student writing and experienced in applying standards and performance expectations. Oral English skills are tested as well during a recorded Communication Video with the student as required for Admissions that will demonstrate the students’ presentation and speaking skills.
