New Intensive Courses in English (NICE) offers several excellent English courses throughout the year, in the morning and afternoon. Study options include rigorous academic preparation, English for communication in the community and the workplace, and short conversation courses that expose students to life in the U.S. and Hawaii, and classes that focus on a particular language skill. Although each course has a unique focus, NICE is especially known for its emphasis on building practical ORAL COMMUNICATION skills in English.
The University Preparation (UP) Program is your bridge to success at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UH Mānoa). UP provides maximum support for academic study and English language at the university level; personalized advising toward college admissions; and cultural orientation. There is no better way to prepare for your undergraduate degree!
UP participants are granted conditional admission to UH Mānoa. They take a combination of credit and non-credit courses designed to both enter and succeed in degree-level programs. Upon successful completion of the UP program and meeting all UH Mānoa admissions requirements, participants may fully enter UH Mānoa to continue toward their degree (see structure and content for details).
Special English Programs (SEP) provide short-term, custom-designed English language programs for groups of students from foreign educational institutions and companies. Each year, the program hosts junior high and high schools, universities and technical and junior colleges, and company-sponsored groups for an unforgettable experience in language and culture unique to Hawaii!
Winter and Summer NICE are 3-week courses designed for individuals with only a short time available for studying English in Hawai‘i. The focus is on ORAL COMMUNICATION and AMERICAN and HAWAIIAN CULTURE. Excursions into the community and interaction with UH students are popular features of these programs!
