  • no official TOEFL or IELTS score
  • or who have not taken the GRE or GMAT

    The International Year One program provides training in English as well as your academic, and study skills, enabling you to earn up to 31 academic credits.

    Afterwards you can directly move on into the second year of undergraduate coursework in one of more than 20 bachelor's degrees in the fields of business, economics, engineering, environmental sciences, food sciences, education and social sciences programs.

    "The classes are small and everything is very discussion-based. I have a class this semester that has only four students. There are two professors as well, so the amount of discussion and work that we do is amazing.

    "All of my professors know me and ask how I'm doing."

    The University of Maine has really prepared me to reach my ultimate goal and apply to the Foreign Service."
