Welcome to ELS UPM! For many new students, ELS marks the start of their higher education journey in Malaysia. We provide a direct pathway to UPM degree programmes through our award-winning and internationally-accredited Certified Intensive English Programme (CIEP).

Since 2013, UPM students have fulfilled their English language requirements by completing the CIEP – no IELTS or TOEFL required. To prospective students, I wish you all the best in your application. If you have already received your UPM offer letter – congratulations! I look forward to seeing you at ELS UPM soon.
