This program is for students who want to enter a Canadian University, but don’t have the required level of English, or for those who want to familiarize themselves with the Canadian Education System. We facilitate our student’s transition toward a Canadian College.
First, students will take English lessons in order to attain the required level to pursue studies in an English-speaking establishment, as well as specific classes pertaining to the Canadian university system (taking notes, academic writing techniques, exam preparation…). Following this program, students will be oriented and advised on academic choices such as programs, specializations, optional classes, etc, by one of our international student counsellor.
If you are looking for a more individualized approach that is tailored to your needs, this is the type of course for you. Your instructor will pace the course to suit your learning style and you will have the time to explore the concepts that you lack in greater depth. A private class will also give you intensive oral practice and you will make faster progress.
