Preparatory Intensive English Programme

Introduction:
The Preparatory Intensive English (PIE) Programme is an English language course offered by CMLHS. It is a foundation programme for international students about to embark on their undergraduate study as well as to cater for specific needs of participants.
 
Synopsis:
The programme comprises reading, writing, speaking, and grammar components. The teaching and learning sessions are carried out in our state-of-the-art multimedia language laboratories. In addition, the participants have the opportunity to do self-access language learning activities using the software available as well as other Internet resources in the laboratories.

There are five levels in PIE programme. At the end of each level, students are required to sit for a UMP-English Proficiency Test. The UMP-EPT is a high-stakes language test intended to assess the language ability of international students who wish to study at UMP but do not meet the required level of English language proficiency. The UMP-EPT consists of three components tested in three papers:

• Paper 1 – Grammar
• Paper 2 – Reading
• Paper 3 – Writing

Apart from the three written components, an additional Speaking Test will be included. Results of the tests are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest). Students can exit the programme at any level if they achieve a Band 5 or better in both tests.
