Gap Year

Some of our students come to Lane simply to experience American lifestyle and study a variety of different courses before returning home. Spend 3-12 months at Lane discovering what you are most passionate about and have the time of a lifetime while doing it. You may not want to leave!

Students are welcome to start in Fall, Winter or Spring terms.

English as a Second Language

English is one of the most learned languages in the world and many of our students come to Lane to improve their English  skills. TOEFL and IELTS are not required to study ESL at Lane!
