Welcome to the English Language Programs (ELP) Section. ELP is a vital section of the General Foundation Program (GFP) as it ensures the effective setting and implementation of the English language plans, programs and examinations.

In the GFP, we aim to prepare our students to pursue their specialization studies by equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills in English, IT and Maths.  

Our main role is to ensure our qualified team of lecturers are provided with quality training opportunities to keep them up-to-date with the current practices and modern strategies in teaching.

We understand the significant role leadership can have on leading and building effective work teams. Thus, we are keen to create a supportive working environment that encourages autonomy and creative thinking on the basis of a clear vision and goals.
