In this program you will study with international classmates who share one goal: acceptance to a UVic degree program.
University Admission Preparation (UAP) is the highest academic level of our 12-Week Intensive program, designed for you to develop the skills to participate with confidence as a non-native English speaker in an academic setting.
A passing grade on this level satisfies the English requirement for entry into UVic undergraduate programs.
As a UAP student you are also eligible for "conditional admission" to UVic degree programs, meaning that once you pass UAP you can register in UVic credit courses. Proof of language proficiency and offers of conditional admission are very motivating factors for UAP students!
Your UAP classes will focus on:
- academic English
- oral presentations
- reading academic texts
- report writing
- research and computer use
