UCS is proud of its Language School and its VESOL program. The program was created to help individuals who did not speak English acquire the necessary skills to communicate effectively in an English speaking environment and to facilitate the job seeking process. The idea developed because when we started off as a beauty school, many of our students couldn’t communicate in English and were having difficulty finding employment because of it. VESOL became a great solutions as students began to enroll in VESOL classes along with the other classes required by their individual programs.

As it is expected, their English skills improved and continue to improve as more and more people are registering for the VESOL Program. And when graduation time comes around they feel prepared to seek better employment opportunities. However, our VESOL program is not exclusively developed for our beauty school or our nursing school students, anyone who is interested in learning English is welcome to join.
