Program description - September 2022

This four-level English for Academic Studies program focuses on the listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills required for college/university studies. Students start at a level determined by scores on an in-house placement test or an internationally-recognized English language test such as TOEFL or IELTS. In levels 2 and 3, students reinforce English skills through Canadian Perspectives courses, as well as through core English skills courses. Concurrent with English studies in Level 4, students take post-secondary credit courses. There are three, 15-week main intakes per year, which begin in January, May, and September. We also offer midterm (7-week) intake options in March, July, and November, which are reserved for first-time international students only. These accelerated, 7-week delivery options will require a higher language placement test score. Please contact the ELS/EAS program coordinator if you have any questions. This program is offered fully online and in a hybrid on-campus modality. Note: Domestic students (Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and refugees or convention refugees) wishing to pursue English language studies should enrol in General Arts and Science: English Language Studies.
