The Language Gallery, a preferred language partner for University Canada West, is launching a new online English training program called TLG Live.
The online English training program includes their University Pathway Program (UPP) so successful students don’t need to take an Academic IELTS or TOFL exam for admission. The program is designed to prepare students for their academic studies at a Canadian college or university.
Students will need to complete UPP level 6 with a minimum of 80% in course work in order to qualify for direct entry into UCW’s degree programs.
New intakes will start every two weeks and free arrival tests are available for new students. The introductory price is only $99 per week.
