The University of Pennsylvania is one of the oldest universities in America and, as a member of the Ivy League, one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in all the world. Penn's historic, beautiful and vibrant Philadelphia campus is home to 12 schools, more than 170 research centers, 4,200 faculty and nearly 20,000 students. At Penn, students enjoy the opportunity to gain knowledge without boundaries while living in one of America's great cities.

English Language Program

The University of Pennsylvania established the English Language Programs (ELP) in the early 1960s to provide courses in English as a second/foreign language (ESL/EFL) and orientation to life in the United States. Each year, 2,000 students from all over the world come to the ELP. They study English for a wide variety of purposes, including: general English; business English; English for academic preparation; English for professions such as law, architecture, dental medicine, and nursing; and teacher training.

The University of Pennsylvania (Penn) was founded in 1740 by Benjamin Franklin -- the noted diplomat, author, inventor, and scientist who discovered electricity. Penn is one of eight private universities known as the Ivy League. There are over 24,500 students at Penn, including 4,000 international students. Over 4,500 faculty members teach at Penn, including four who have received Nobel Prizes in recent years. The University of Pennsylvania is consistently ranked as one of the best universities in the USA. In their rankings for 2015, US News & World Report ranked Penn #8 in their national Best Colleges rankings. Penn's business school, Wharton, is the oldest school of business in the USA and has been ranked #1 by Business Week, Wall Street Journal and Financial Times magazines.
