Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

Students conditionally admitted to a graduate program of study, who have an IELTS score between 6.5 and 6.9 or the equivalent, will be required to successfully complete the Graduate Preparatory Program (GPP)

The GPP is designed to ensure that incoming graduate students have a high level of English language proficiency and a strong orientation to Canadian academic culture. 

The GPP consists of an intensive term-long 15 hour/week program offered by the International Education Centre (IEC) and an undergraduate academic course

The course is determined by the Graduate Admissions Committee for the student’s intended program of study and indicated on the student’s data form. This course is normally taken concurrently with the IEC program.
