International Spouses and Partners English Program (ISEP)

ISEP, sponsored jointly by the OGS and NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, provides non-credit English instruction for the spouses and partners of NYU’s international students and scholars. The classes, taught by graduate students from Steinhardt, focus on conversational English and American culture, and are offered in 12-week sessions during the fall and spring semesters. These classes are focused on conversational practice - they are not intensive English classes, although they could serve as an accompaniment for intensive classes. The cost is $105 per semester.  

Spring 2023 Information:

Classes will begin the week of February 13th, 2023, will run for 12 sessions, and be 1.5 hours each week. Classes will take place at Eastern Time/ET.  An example of Eastern Time/ET is what someone refers to when speaking about the time in New York City.
