The results for these long-term DynEd clients are well above the average TOEIC score for graduates from the top-50 universities of 811.69 and exceed the requirements set by most well known employers.

UIBE began to reform its English education in 2002, and the introduction of DynEd English teaching system was an essential part of the school’s initiatives to break through traditional educational methods.
