This program is designed to prepare students whose English needs some fine-tuning and development for successful entry in Yorkville University undergraduate degree programs and Toronto Film School diploma programs. The Pathway Program is designed to assist students in adjusting to an English academic environment, addressing such skills as: academic writing (style, syntax, cohesiveness etc.), group discussions (presenting proposals, agreeing and disagreeing, organizing ideas), analyzing academic reading materials, critical thinking, delivering effective presentations, and research and referencing. This course also addresses any important differences in academic culture in an effort to reduce the likelihood of any cross-cultural misunderstandings.
The ESL Pathway Program enables students with less than the minimum required IELTS scores, to be accepted to Yorkville University/Toronto Film School programs in Ontario. The ESL Pathway offers three levels of study with content focused on improving your English academic skills.
