FOUNDATION PROGRAM

Earn a Canadian degree from Canadian University

Foundation program provides international students a way to “jump start” their university studies in Canada by taking a combination of English language courses and post-secondary level academic courses in their home countries prior to arriving at Intended University.

Under this program, students from partner institutions may upgrade their English language skills while taking university-level courses at their home institutions. By the time students are ready to come to Canada, they will already have improved their English skills and have completed academic courses which can count as transfer credits towards a university degree, based on the agreement between university and the partner institution. In this way, students may shorten the length of time they need to remain in Canada to complete their degree. Students meeting all entrance requirements will be eligible for direct entry into university’s academic programs.
