What is ACE@UTM?
Academic Culture & English (ACE@UTM) is a fee-based English language transition program for students admitted to UTM who require additional English language support in order to meet the University of Toronto’s English language requirement. ACE@UTM is offered twice per year, during the Summer (early July to end of August) and the Fall-Winter (early September to end of April).
The English course component of the ACE@UTM program is called Academic English Level 60 and is taught by instructors from the University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies English Language Program. Successful completion of this course is a pathway to full-time undergraduate studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga. Academic English Level 60 focuses on developing language as a tool for use in academic environments. The classes take a theme-based integrated skills approach with attention to the development of four skill areas: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The curriculum is also designed to target the development of communication, research and university level study skills.
We are committed to ensuring that the ACE@UTM program prepares students for full-time studies, at one of the top ranked Universities in the world!
