General Arts and Science – English for Academic Purposes

Improve your English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills to handle everyday interactions in an English-language environment and to upgrade your English skills to a level appropriate for academic studies.

This learning program consists of two skill levels. Both levels consist of five courses that focus on different language skills and topics, combining classroom activities with academic workshops and off-campus excursions to immerse you in the English language and Canadian culture.

English skills are assessed at intake, and students are accordingly placed in a level within the program. Typically, you are required to study for eight months to earn your certificate. However, if you have advanced English skills, you may be able to skip the lower level and complete your certificate in as little as four months. If you have very basic English skills, you may require foundational concepts and it will instead take 10 months to complete all requirements.

In the highest levels of the program, you are also able to connect to the broader College community through discipline-specific coursework from various programs of study and may earn up to two General Education course credits towards select College programs.

As a graduate, you may apply for entry into many regular programs at Cambrian College.
