- Do I need a student visa to study at Immerse?
U.S. immigration law requires a student who intends to study English in the USA to have a student visa. Immerse does not currently offer student visas (F-1). However, if you are traveling on a tourist visa or have a visa waiver you may be able to join one of our non-intensive, part-time English courses.
We are in the process of becoming an I-20 institute so that we may offer student visas.
- What courses are offered at Immerse?
We offer full-time courses for U.S. residents, part-time courses for internationals in the USA on tourist visas (12 hours per week), and TOEFL preparation classes.
All courses award a certificate of completion and some courses may allow for admission to several colleges and universities in the USA.
- How far from my residence hall are my classes?
Our English classes are a short walk from your residence hall to the academic center where you will study English. All of our facilities are on-site (indoor gymnasium, athletic field, dining hall, and administrative offices).
All meals can be eaten on campus. Our dining hall is in Old Main, where most of our students live. A student kitchen is also available if you’d like to cook some of your own meals. Some meals are self-serve and allow you to eat according to your schedule.
- What activities are offered when I’m not in class?
Lancaster is centrally located to some of the most exciting cities in the USA (Philadelphia, New York City, Washington, DC). Besides social activities like bowling, game nights, pizza parties, and downtown Lancaster events, we offer trips to sporting events, historical sites in Washington, or big city trips to Philadelphia and the Big Apple: New York City.
- How much does it cost to live and study at Immerse?
Costs depend on the English program in which you are enrolled and whether you are in a single or shared room. To view our current prices please click HOUSING ON CAMPUS or ENGLISH PROGRAM.
- How long do I need to learn English?
Most students need at least one session (8 weeks) to perfect their English for college or university enrollment, but this depends on your current level of English and your goals. We offer 6 levels of English, each level lasting 16 weeks. Once you complete a level you will be able to progress to the next level.
