English Language Centre

The English Language Centre assists those whose first language is not English. Our focus is on improving academic English so that current and future students can achieve their academic goals.

Full-time Programs (for future degree students)

Our 14-week Intensive Academic English Program (IAEP) starts in September, January and May. Successful completion of the highest level, Level 5, meets the language requirement for admission to the U of M.

Workshops and Part-time Courses (for current degree students)

Our workshops and part-time courses give you opportunity to practice speaking and writing in preparation for assignments in degree study.

IELTS Test Centre

The ELC is an official IELTS Test Centre and provides two test dates each month. IELTS is a globally recognized English language proficiency test that is accepted to meet academic study, work and immigration requirements.

Homestay Program

The established and well respected Homestay Program matches international students who need room and board with local hosts. In addition to improving your spoken English, it’s a great way for you to learn about life in Canada and share your culture with Manitobans.
