Before Starting Classes
Registration into the school is done by appointment. Original passport and applicable Visa must be presented at the time of registration. After registration, the learner will have a placement assessment. Based on the results of the assessment – and class availability – a class schedule and tuition invoice will be created. Please note that our classes are non-credit, non-intensive and settlement-focused.
You can study English as a Second Language for six months or less as a visitor without a study permit provided you are at least 18 years old. If you want to study English for more than six months, you need to get student authorization before you leave your country. Please note that due to the high demand for English language training, classes may be filled for the Winter Term. Please contact us for current availability and registration deadlines for specific classes.
