What is the Academic Program?
The Academic Program builds a solid foundation of English proficiency. This program will allow you to improve your academic English skills to the level you need to pursue your educational goals. You will participate in fun online activities and join a welcoming student community.
You can participate in interactive online and in-person clubs, activities and social events organized by York University Community Leaders.

Online Conversation Partner sessions hosted multiple times per week by York University Community Leaders will also allow you to practice your language and social skills in a casual and supportive online setting with a group of your peers.
