It is my privilege to invite Christian students from all over the world to take part in our International Student Education programs. To fulfill the university's mission and vision, our department provides three primary international student education programs.

The ELSP program will discontinue at the end of Spring 2014. For details about the ESL programs offered by newly-established Biola English Language Institute, please visit www.biola.edu/biolaeli.

  • The English Language Studies Program (ELSP) attracts Christian students from all countries of the world. ELSP is an intensive English program designed to develop students' proficiency in the English language and to help them achieve their degrees at Biola University.
  • The International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) links Biola University with schools around the world. Biola students can study abroad for one or two semesters at one of our exchange universities and receive credit from Biola University. Biola also hosts students from our exchange schools each semester.
  • The Biola English Study Tour (BEST) gives international college students the opportunity to study English at Biola and learn about American culture during their summer vacation. Continuing July 2003.

Please join us and we will help you prepare to impact the world for our Lord Jesus Christ in serving His people.

Sincerely in Christ,

Sung W. Lee, Ph.D.
Director, International Student Education
