English Preparation Program

Students who advance and improve their English language skills prior to commencing their studies are able to thrive in the professional diploma programs offered at York College. That’s why we created the English Preparation Program (EPP), which supports the learning needs of intermediate-level students of English. The course focuses on advanced English speaking, listening, reading and writing so that students can succeed in their professional goals. The course materials also incorporate the demands of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) to allow students to achieve certification in an internationally recognized system.
