  • Since 2006, INTO has helped thousands of international students take their first steps towards success in higher education. INTO programs on the campuses of leading American universities offer international students a variety of academic Pathway and English language programs in a highly supportive learning environment, all designed to accelerate students' success. As a student studying at one of our US centers, students will have all the benefits and experiences of campus life at an American university. Living and learning in the heart of the university campus, they develop friendships with American and international students and have access to all of the academic, social and cultural resources and activities that each university has to offer. INTO can be students' first steps toward earning a US university degree or strengthening your English language skills while studying on an American university campus at universities located in friendly, small town or vibrant, large city environments.
