Al-Baha University is committed to providing a unique and valuable educational environment; hence the English Language Center (ELC) was established to meet the academic and linguistic needs for first-year students who are expected to communicate, read, and write in English, as a medium of instruction. Students are required to demonstrate a high level of English language ability, and the ELC assists them to achieve their academic goals. The ELC was assigned to supervise the English Language Program (ELP) of the Preparatory Year. In the academic year 2016-2017.The ELC commenced its duties by supervising the ELP of the faculties of Medicine, Dentistry, Clinical Pharmacy and Applied Medical Sciences. The ELP of the Faculty of Engineering was added a year later. In the academic year 2018-2019, the Center’s responsibilities expanded to cover all the English Language Programs at the university.
