The English as a Second Language Department has a new name.
Effective September 2017, we will be known as the English Language Studies Department.Find our courses in the timetable under English for Academic Purposes (EAP).
As of September 1, 2017, all English Language Studies (ELS) and Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses for domestic students are tuition-free. Ancillary fees still apply.
Learn English and gain the necessary academic skills to successfully transition from ELS courses into university-level academic or vocational studies. The English Language Studies (ELS) department offers full-time and part-time studies in Academic Preparation for both domestic and international students. A multi-media computer lab and a faculty staffed ELS Help Centre are here to support your learning. Assistance is also provided by trained ELS peer tutors through UFV's Academic Success Centre.
