Ryerson launches new English-language program

July 24, 2013

Ryerson University has launched a new program for students who are academically qualified to apply for admission but don’t meet the minimum English proficiency requirements. The Ryerson University Foundation Program, offered by Ryerson’s Chang School of Continuing Education, Faculty of Arts, and Undergraduate Admissions and Recruitment, offers intensive English language and academic skills instruction combined with undergraduate course work. Students who successfully complete the course are admitted to degree programs with at least one undergraduate course credit. The program, which begins this fall, currently has 23 enrolled students from China, Turkey, Vietnam, Pakistan and Mauritius, speaking seven to 10 different languages. Recent studies have shown that English skills are poor among Chinese students planning to study in English-speaking countries. Ryerson News
