Pathway to College

Pathway to College

This program is for students who want to enter a Canadian University, but don’t have the required level of French, or for those who want to familiarize themselves with the Canadian Education System. We facilitate our student’s transition toward a Canadian College.

First, students will take French lessons in order to attain the required level to pursue studies in an French -speaking establishment, as well as specific classes pertaining to the Canadian university system (taking notes, academic writing techniques, exam preparation…). Following this program, students will be oriented and advised on academic choices such as programs, specializations, optional classes, etc, by one of our international student counsellor.
