Conditional Acceptance

All admitted international students are conditionally accepted on the basis of their language and math skills. Senior level English and Math are requirements for most programs. While TOEFL/IELTS scores are not mandatory (except for students applying from China and India – see SPP requirements), students should have sufficient knowledge of English to fully participate in the educational experience, which includes the ability to understand the lectures, participate in class discussions and write assignments and examinations.

Certification

Cambrian College has certificate, diploma and degree granting status in Canada. Upon graduation, students will be awarded Ministry recognized certificates, diplomas or degrees.  In addition, the College has signed articulation agreements which allow students to continue their education in a variety of areas with universities.

English Language

The language of instruction for all of our programs is English. Students applying to our programs must have sufficient English language skills and experience to fully participate in classroom lectures, assignments, discussions and examinations.

Upon arrival, students will be assessed for their English skills and students who do not meet the English language requirement will be asked to take additional English courses before taking their regular program of study.

Note: those requiring intensive upgrading may have to extend their program of study by up to one year and have to pay up to one academic year of additional fees.
