ESL (Summer Programs)

Salman Bin Abdulaziz University is striving to ensure its students to be able to speak, write, comprehend English as a second language in order to fully absorb, practice and implement the knowledge and innovation being developed in the west. University management feels that English language barrier is the main impasse for the students in this process of transferring knowledge.
SAU follows its strategy to send students to take part in English language courses during their summer vacations from the leading institutions of the world. Last year, SAU sent various students to Dalhousie University Canada and the students who attended this course gave an outstanding feedback with the comments to further strengthen and augment the program.
