English Language Studies

UFV's English Language Studies (ELS) program is currently under review and intake has been suspended for the 2023-2025 academic years. During these two (2) years, the ELS program will undergo changes to ensure students are receiving the best English language education that UFV can offer. Please check back for future updates.

A limited number of English for Academic Preparation (EAP) courses may still be offered during this time. Please check the Timetable for a list of available courses.

If you are interested in other upgrading opportunities at UFV, please email the Upgrading and University Preparation Department at
