English for Academic Purposes

The English Language Program specializes in preparing students who want to fulfil their academic goals at university or college. We offer full-time intensive programs and part-time courses to students who need to develop their academic English skills. Our courses will help you prepare for academic success.

Academic English

Our Academic English course can help you meet the English language-facility requirements for the University of Toronto and other universities and colleges. This course is available to students from low-intermediate to advanced level.

Advanced Academic Skills

The Advanced Academic Skills course is designed for students who have already met the English language-facility requirement for their intended university or college. It will provide you with greater confidence and will enhance your language skills so you can succeed in your chosen field of study.
