Advantages of the free English learning program in the USA
Golden Gate Study Abroad agency helps students from all around the world to get a 24-week free English language course in the USA (ESL Scholarship) at OHLA Language Academy, Flordia, USA.
This English course is completely tuition-free. After completing the 2nd advanced level of the English course, students are transferred to the selected Program at one of our 27 partner US universities.
In addition, at this point, NO TOEFL or IELTS scores are required. Also, we GUARANTEE admission to the chosen US university from the list below.
English Level Requirement
International students need to have prior knowledge of English in order to apply for thethe English Scholarship Program. This is because the free course covers a 24-weeks course.
However, if the student’s level of English is low, he/she might still have the chance to get the ESL Scholarship in the USA. However, he/she has to pay the fees for lessons prior to level 1 when needed. Later on, the English scholarship will cover the Advanced levels 1 & 2.
That is why it is very important to contact us when you are ready to take your English placement test before you start your free English course in the USA.
Conditions and requirements for the ESL scholarships in the USA
This free English course in the USA is for international students who are planning to continue their studies in the US. They should be able to cover their program study cost after the ESL program completion.
In fact, this free English course is a part of a conditional offer at one of the USA universities that will be mentioned in the list below. In other words, it is not possible to apply for this ESL scholarship, if you are not going to study in one of these universities.
A deposit should be made by the student in order to ensure that they are ready to continue their education in the USA. Which will be later deducted from the first-year tuition fees. This step will allow the university to send an acceptance letter stating that the student will be able to gain direct access to the school once the program is completed.
The amount to be paid depends on the study level. For bachelor’s programs, students have to pay an $8500 security deposit. As for Master’s programs, students have to pay a $6000 deposit. Note that both apply towards your University Tuition fees once you start your course.
