Partnerships

For two decades the American English Institute (AEI) has partnered with government ministries, universities and other academic institutions, and organizations from around the world. For the AEI, having a partnership means collaboration and building relationships. There are several ways to partner with AEI: 

  1. Partnerships  
  2. Customized Programming

Partnerships

Building partnerships between universities or other organizations is a way to construct bridges between institutions and cultures. Participants who have studied in the AEI return home and share their experience with their peers who then come to study and share a similar, yet different, experience.  The continuity helps build trust between programs and the bridge is made stronger each year. Students and professionals alike return home with a new view working with, and in, other cultures. 

The AEI welcomes students and professionals who are interested in transformative learning experience by being immersed in the larger University community. By working directly with home-country study abroad offices, AEI is able to contribute to students' degree programs by offering certificates, issuing transcripts, and mailing AEI transcripts and attendance records  at the end of each term.

Customized Programming

For two decades the American English Institute (AEI) has provided custom programs for government ministries, universities and other academic institutions, and organizations from around the world. Programs can be designed to suit all a group's professional and/or academic needs. To make the most of learning opportunities and budgets, study packages can be combined with AEI faculty visits to your location and/or time on the UO campus in combination with a variety of extra-curricular cultural and recreational activities. 

Programming is flexible and can be structured:

  • As non-credit, for Continuing Education Units, for credit through an accredited partnering overseas institution or official body such as a Ministry of Education (with proper coordination), or for credit through UO (additional admission criteria and costs may apply) 
  • Long-term (one full, 10-week term or more) or short-term (three to six weeks) 
  • Integrated into the intensive English program, semi-integrated into the intensive English program with specialized electives, or completely independent. 
  • Teacher training can be done online, on the UO campus, abroad, or following a hybrid model. 

For questions about special group rates, customized programs, or blended programs (online courses plus face-to-face training on the UO campus or with a UO faculty trainer in a location outside the USA), please contact us.
