Our innovative, dynamic programs build cultural competency and communication skills inside and outside the classroom. Serving students, faculty, and staff from around the globe, we believe the best way to understand a culture is to live in it. We offer summer and year-round English language programs in the Boston area, teacher and faculty training programs, summer programs abroad, and specialized programs with partner institutions.

Student Personas

Tamara I think what makes UPP stand out are the unlimited opportunities. We can get access to the library, work on projects with renowned Tufts professors, and even sit in lectures with other Tufts students.
Students aboard the USS Constitution I learned how to manage my schedule more efficiently...how to balance between work and fun. Work hard and play hard!
Summer English Language program in downtown Boston I truly appreciated what all the staff and instructors’ have done for us during the Teacher Training Program. I enjoyed every aspect of the program and I hope it will continue to prosper!
