To be accepted to study at the International Study Center, you will need to meet specific admission requirements. These are comprised of academic requirements, as well as meeting a minimum level of English language proficiency.
The requirements needed to study the International Year are lower than what you would need to be admitted directly to the University. This provides you the opportunity to begin studying sooner, while developing your skills and preparing for your degree.
The International Year program will support you while you begin earning credits for your undergraduate degree at Western.

You will need a minimum TOEFL, IELTS or Pearson Versant score*. The length of your International Year program depends on your level of English language proficiency.
