English Language Instruction

Students who will be in the United States the summer before the fall semester begins often find it beneficial to enroll in a summer or late spring English program. These students usually find it easier to approach law texts and lectures with their strengthened language skills. There are many English language programs in the US at any given time – here are a few in which our students have participated:


  • Buses: Chapel Hill/Carrboro buses are free. Durham and Raleigh buses charge a small fee. Follow the previous link for maps and schedules for all of the area's bus services and go to UNC Transportation & Parking for information on bus travel and parking specifically for the UNC campus and Chapel Hill/Carrboro.
  • : Excellent advice on public transit options, routes to popular places-even a list of bus routes serving local apartment complexes
  • Taxis: available 24 hrs with student discount.
  • Zipcar: a car-sharing service that UNC participates in. Several cars are parked on campus, which, for a small fee, you can reserve hourly for up to three days with a US or international driver's license. This is a wonderful resource for international students at UNC who might not want to purchase a vehicle. Please go to the link BEFORE you leave your home country, as you will need to obtain some documentation prior to arriving. More Information
  • NCDOT: Information about getting a North Carolina drivers license.


  • Chapel Hill Board of Visitors: Features news and events, with links to surrounding community pages.
  • Chapel Hill News: Click "Daybook" in the top menu bar for a list of events in Chapel Hill.
  • GoTriangle: Search for activities, restaurants, etc., throughout the Triangle area (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh and surrounding). After clicking the tab you're interested in searching for, fill in the "NEAR" box with the correct location.
  • Independent Weekly: Online version of the paper you'll see around town. This has pretty complete listings of events in the Triangle art, music, and literary scene, along with movies, lectures, performances, and events of all kinds.


  • Groceries: Listed by regional cuisine by our friends at NC State.
  • Restaurants: Yelp has complete restaurant listings and helpful reviews. Search by location, by cuisine, by price, and more.
