1 Year - Post Secondary Certificate Program
Sep, Jan, May
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 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 level of the program, you are also able to earn General Education course credits which you can put toward the completion of a subsequent College program.
