Pathways to UTM: Engligh Language Support
Prepare for Success
At U of T Mississauga, our goal is to deliver exceptional and inspiring educational experiences that are responsive to our students’ needs and career aspirations. We celebrate the diversity of our international student body and aim to support our students in their desire to achieve academic success.
For non-native speakers of English who have met the U of T academic requirement, have already studied in Canada for at least one year in a Canadian curriculum school but who require additional language enhancement, U of T Mississauga is able to offer additional support. This is provided in our Academic Culture and English (ACE@UTM) course, taught by instructors from the renowned University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies.
The skills acquired are designed to lead participants toward greater success in their studies.
The ACE@UTM Advantage
ACE@UTM is specifically designed to target the development of communication, research and study skills. There are two pathways:
1. Summer Program — July and August
Students taking the Summer Program will take 240 hours of English language instruction over 8 weeks to prepare for academic studies in September. Students will also have the option of living in on-campus residences for this program.
2. Fall/Winter Program — September to April
Students taking the Fall/Winter Program will take a reduced UTM academic load and be required to attend 96 hours of English language instruction during the fall and winter terms.
