The UCP program simultaneously combines English language study with academic preparation in order for students to succeed in an English-speaking university or college setting. When the students graduate from the final UCP level, they will have direct access to numerous degree programs at partner universities and colleges in Canada.
The PGP program prepares students for the rigours of graduate-level study by preparing them linguistically and giving them authentic practice that will mimic the expectations of their respective programs. Students who complete this course will have direct access to select graduate programs in Canada with no IELTS or TOEFL score required.
We strongly encourage our students to participate in the Homestay Program. Living with a Canadian family is the best way for you to improve your English, learn about our culture and adapt to a new life in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The Homestay Program's objective is to provide you with a warm welcome to Canada and lots of support while you adjust to a new culture.
Our homestay families are carefully chosen by our Accommodations Coordinator. Our families live in safe residential neighborhoods within a 30 to 50 minute bus ride.
The IELTS program enables students to acquire the skills they need to succeed on the IELTS proficiency test. Students will learn how the test is structured and assessed and how to achieve their IELTS goals. Students will be given authentic test practice as well as opportunities to work closely with both their instructors and classmates. ECLC’s IELTS courses are beneficial for not only potential test-takers, but also for anyone wishing to push themselves and improve their English skills.
