UNIVERSITY STUDENT Pathway to Canada’s Best Universities All students wishing to enter a university in Canada must have a proven high level of English. The UofA EAP course is recognised by a number of top universities and our exam prep courses also prepare students for university entrance.

University Support Desk Entry requirements for specific programs vary, but all require a suitable level of English. CCEL Academic Advisory staff assist students to find the right choice of program and university for their bachelor or master’s degree.

Conditional Acceptance Students who meet the academic requirements of some Canadian universities and colleges can get acceptance conditional on them reaching the necessary English level. This can be done with the assistance of CCEL staff before arrival in Canada or while enrolled in a CCEL program.

English For Academic Purposes (EAP) The University of Alberta Faculty of Extension has a partnership agreement with CCEL whereby students can study EAP (ESL 140 and ESL 145) courses at CCEL. Completion of ESL 145 meets English entry requirement for the University of Alberta undergraduate programs.

Academic English (Pre-EAP) Pre-EAP is an intensive, 10 week course designed to introduce students to academic English, focusing on academic reading and writing skills. The purpose of the course is to expose students to a variety of structures, from descriptive and comparative essays to opinion-based papers and reports, and to help them develop their own clear, cohesive, and organized compositions.

Semester Start Dates Canadian universities and colleges have different start dates for different programs. It is important for students to plan their study program in Canada around the university entry dates. Page 7


WORK & STUDY STUDENT Business English Work Study (BEWS) The Business English Work Study Program is offered in 12 to 56 weeks fulltime programs, comprising 50% academic and 50% paid or nonpaid work experience. This course helps reinforce the communication ability of students in a business context and gain work experience in Canada.

The Professional At CCEL we recognize the need for specialized programs for Business People, Teachers and other mature students, and have developed our English for Executive programs with these groups in mind: small group setting (maximum 9 students), board room style classrooms, professional teachers, a curriculum covering appropriate topics and material, and the choice of private lessons, work experience or specialty electives.

English For Executives This program is specifically designed for mature students. It is made up of 18 hours per week of small-group English lessons and the choice of private one-to-one tutoring (in any specialty area), individualized computer-assisted learning, specialized electives and/or work experience.

Certificate/Diploma in Business English 8 or 12 week program for business students. Business English in the morning 18hrs/week and electives in the afternoon including career preparation, exam preparation (BEC), public speaking, writing and presentations. This course was developed through the University of Cambridge and is internationally recognized. BEC is designed for students who need to use English in the context of international business.

TESOL Diploma

These include: faxing, email, cell phone rental, concierge, concert booking, long distance phone cards, teleconference / video conference set up, lap top rental, car rental, and travel booking.

This unique program consists of 8 weeks of theoretical foundation and 4 weeks of practical training with the Maple Ridge School District.

Internships This program combines English classes to improve communication in the work place with specialized classes which prepare students for finding a work placement. Students must have a student visa and a C30 work permit in order to do an unpaid internship or paid co-op program in Canada.
