International Language Institute of MA and Marlboro College form partnership to help international students succeed.

New agreement brings the number of ILI’s college and university partners to 12 

International students whose first languages are not English have a new opportunity to make a successful transition to programs at Marlboro College (Marlboro, VT). Thanks to a partnership with the International Language Institute (ILI) in Northampton, MA, the students will receive academic support designed specifically to help college-bound individuals with moderate English skills.

“This is a perfect match,” said Brigid Lawler, Marlboro College’s Dean of Admissions. “Many potential international students need help with their English before they start their undergraduate or graduate work in the United States. ILI’s well-deserved reputation for excellence in teaching English skills as well as the nuances of US academic culture assures that our students will have a better chance at success. We are excited to get the partnership underway.” [Read more…]
