    University Preparatory English Program
    University Pathway Program
    1. UP-English has been divided into two, 4-week half courses (UP-English A & B)
    2. Each half course is a complete and independent unit.
    3. Students may take the two half courses in any order.

    To satisfy their university English admission requirement, students must meet the requirements of both half courses.
    If students do not meet the requirements of both half courses, they will receive a grade of incomplete (not Fail) and may then take UP-English C, a new, custom-design half-course that focuses on the needs of the students in the class (i.e., it will help them to make up the UP-English requirements they have not yet satisfied).
    UP-English C will be offered every whenever a UP A session is offered.

    To be eligible for admission to ILI's UP Program, a student must meet one of the following three criteria:
    1. Must have completed ILI's Level 600 (B2) course
    2. Must have passed an ILI Challenge Test
    3. Must provide an official IELTS score of 6.0 (must have a minimum reading and writing band score of 6.0, minimum for all other band scores 5.5) or an ibt TOEFL score of 80.

    In ILI's experience, students are best prepared for the demands of university when they move up through ILI's General English program and then enter ILI's University Preparatory Program.

    Successful completion of UP-English satisfies the English admission requirement s at most universities in Atlantic Canada. Consult the university of your choice to confirm its English language admission requirements. (Note: some graduate level programs may still require an official IELTS score).

    University Admission
    If you would like help applying for a conditional offer of admission, you will need to submit the following to us.

    1. Complete you application to ILI and one of ILI's associated universities.
    2. Include a copy of you official high school transcripts.
    3. Include a letter of academic recommendation from a former teacher.

Standardized Exam : IELTS

The International Language Institute (ILI) was founded in 1983 and is recognized as one of Canada’s leading private language training institutes. Since 1983, thousands of international students have selected ILI to learn English, to prepare for University, or for the TOEFL or IELTS exam. Here are a few highlights:
● ILI is a Designated Learning Institution under the new Citizenship and Immigration (CIC) regulations. This designation qualifies ILI to issue Letters of Acceptance (LoA) to international students for long-term study in Canada.
● ILI was the first certified Cambridge teacher training centre in North America to offer CELTA, the certificate in Language Teaching to Adults.
● ILI is a member of TESL Canada. CELTA-trained teachers are a hallmark of ILI’s instructional programs. www.tesl.ca
● Under formal agreements, ILI’s University Preparatory English program is accepted in place of an official TOEFL or IELTS score at several leading colleges and universities in Atlantic Canada.
● In 2005, ILI was awarded Canada Language Council’s highest honour, the Lynn Howes Award, for quality and innovation in the delivery of language training programs and services.
● ILI conducts holiday study programs for students sponsored by foreign Ministries of Education, educational councils and universities such as the Abu Dhabi Educational Council, Saudi Arabia’s Academic Company for Educational Services, private Japanese high schools and Korean youth study programs.
● ILI officers have played a variety of major roles in the development of the language training industry in Canada.

See CELTA Application Form for registration, policies and procedures.
Payment Method : Bank Transfer
Student shall deposit a full payment directly to the school’s bank account within 7 days of receiving booking approval from the school.
1. Refunds Before You Begin Studies at ILI
You qualify for a full refund of your pre-paid tuition only
● if you have been denied authorization to study in Canada and provide documentation from the proper Canadian authority stating that your application to study in Canada was denied; or
● if you fail to sign the ILI-Student Agreement after you have completed program placement testing and before you begin your first class at ILI.

These refunds apply to tuition only. There is no refund for registration fees or other services that ILI may have provided. If you have paid ILI directly, ILI will take care of your refund. If you used an ILI agent, and you paid the ILI fees to your agent, contact the agent first to get your refund. ILI does not refund the discounted portion of tuition pre-paid to an agent. ILI requires a minimum of two weeks to process refund cheques.

2. Refunds After You Begin Studies at ILI
If you are already studying at ILI and wish to withdraw, you are eligible for a refund of unused tuition only if you have completed at least one full semester (8 weeks) of full-time study and submit the appropriate form at the reception desk by Friday, two weeks before the start of the semester that your withdrawal affects.
You do not qualify for a refund if
● you have been put on probation by the Director of Studies
● you are required to withdraw from ILI for reasons of inappropriate, unacceptable, or aggressive personal behaviour,
● ILI has issued a letter on your behalf for the purposes of renewing your authorization to study in Canada, or
● you have missed or have been late for classes for reasons that are within your control, including cultural adjustment.

All approved refunds involving study at ILI incur an administrative charge of 30%. Even in special situations the refund is subject to the 30% administrative fee. ILI requires a minimum of two weeks to process refund cheques.
