The University Foundation Program is designed to help students make the transition from EAP studies to university-level studies where English is the primary language of instruction.

Description

I moved to Abbotsford without any English at all. I became an ESL student at UFV and learned English from the basic level to the academic level. Academic courses gave me the opportunity to work toward my goals.
