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 flexible learning program consists of four levels that combine 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 placed accordingly in the program. Typically, you are required to study for eight months to earn your certificate. If you have advanced English skills, you may be able to skip levels and complete your certificate in as little as four months. If you have very basic English skills, you may require foundational concepts and may take longer to complete all requirements.

During second semester, 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 three General Education course credits towards select College programs.
