About

History

Education

Why students choose UAlberta's English Language School:

  • The tuition is reasonable and includes medical insurance, health services, and student services fees for each term.
  • Our instructors use an active, student-centred communicative approach to help students improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.
  • We offer multiple levels, from introductory English to English for Academic Purposes (EAP), year round.
  • Our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program provides an option for international students to meet the English Language Proficiency required for undergraduate admission at the University of Alberta. Students admitted to the Bridging Program may combine degree courses with their EAP program.
