Courses in English as a Second Language (ESL) – Bachelor of Arts Degree

Up to a maximum of 12 credits of ESL courses, including academic writing courses for non-anglophones, are open to you if your primary language is not English and you have studied for fewer than five years in an English-language secondary institution.

Note: Effective Summer 2011, the English as a Second Language (ESL) courses will be offered through the McGill Writing Centre. These courses will also have a new prefix, CESL. For more information, please read www.mcgill.ca/mwc and meet with a faculty adviser in Arts OASIS.

Placement tests are required for all ESL courses. For more information on placement tests, see www.mcgill.ca/mwc/placement-test. Soon after the tests are evaluated, you will be issued a permit from the MWC for course registration.
