English and French second language courses

English Second Language (ESL) courses are open to students whose primary language is not English and who have studied for five years or less in English-language secondary institutions.

B.A. & Sc. and B.Sc. students are allowed a maximum of 12 credits of ESL courses, including academic writing courses for non-anglophones.

Placement tests are required for all courses offered through the English and French Language Centre. Soon after the tests are evaluated, you will be issued a departmental approval for course registration.
