English Language Institute


Welcome to the English Language Institute 

Oki, and welcome to the University of Lethbridge. Our University’s Blackfoot name is Iniskim, meaning Sacred Buffalo Stone. The University is located in traditional Blackfoot Confederacy territory. We honour the Blackfoot people and their traditional ways of knowing and caring for this land, as well as all Aboriginal peoples who have helped shape and continue to strengthen our University community.

University of Lethbridge International's English Language Institute offers a variety of English Language programs for both students who study English as an additional language or English for Academic Purposes, as well as domestic students looking to make connections through tutoring and language partnerships.  

In Fall 2021 all core EAP classes will be offered online. Students in Lethbridge may choose to attend in-person workshops and activity options on campus. In Spring 2022 and Summer 2022 the majority of ELI classes and programs will be offered on campus unless otherwise indicated.
