English Language Support

The English Language Programs at OpenEd offer English language learners an opportunity to develop their language ability, academic skills and overall understanding of Canadian culture before entry into degree programs. Our programs have been developed to meet the English language requirements of international students entering undergraduate and graduate degree programs at the University of Guelph.

Our English language programs:

  • Help international students develop lifelong skills that can be applied to a range of professional, academic and social contexts
  • Prepare students to become independent, critical and reflective language learners who use effective learning strategies
  • Provide learner-centred opportunities that promote student well-being
  • Reflect an understanding that language and culture are mutually dependent

For more information, please visit English Language Programs.
