Preparing Students to Study in the United States
Overview of Programs
Fast Track programs, a joint offering from UTGI and the Intensive American English Institute (IAEI), are designed to prepare students from around the world for matriculation to American universities. Through a combination of English language learning classes, cultural and skill-enhancing workshops, and University of Texas courses, Fast Track students build the foundations for success in the American university system.
UTGI and IAEI offer three Fast Track options to accommodate the diverse needs of international students. All programs take place in Austin, Texas, and all program participants will receive certificates of completion from The University of Texas at Austin. For applicable programs, enrolled students will receive course credit from The University of Texas at Austin.
