Student-focused

We offer a full range of services to students, with a special focus on inbound international students studying at North American colleges and universities. Services include:

University Fast Track Programs

The University Fast Track (UFT) Program was created to enhance the cultural and academic preparedness of degree-seeking students to increase their chances of success in American universities. The program provides participants with rigorous, intensive preparation for college work. Students who participate also receive guaranteed acceptance into one of our partner schools, several of which waive the TOEFL requirement. University Fast Track is provided by the Intensive American English Institute (a division of House of Tutors Learning Centers), in Austin, Texas.  Click here to learn more.

Study Abroad Preparation, including Pre-Departure Training

With over 30 years of experience, Alhambra’s leadership team understands that proper information and preparation are vital for a successful study abroad experience. Our popular workshop offers practical tools to students and their families for negotiating the application and visa process, as well as provides useful information for adjusting to their new cultural and academic environment.

Academic Bridging

Many students encounter knowledge gaps between their prior secondary education and future expected coursework at their universities. Alhambra works with students to provide the academic bridging that gives students a solid foundation to begin their higher education or study abroad experience on the right foot.

English as a Second Language (ESL)

Few skills are as academically or professionally marketable as proficiency in the English Language. Alhambra’s partners provide internationally-recognized, best-practice English instruction for all levels in a full-immersion environment. Custom-designed curriculum targeting the needs of specific sectors or industries is also available. Click here for more information on our programs.
