The Short Term Program is a three month program that consists of ESL, English as Second Language, classes along with a selection of non-academic courses.
Ideally, students enrolled in our Short Term Program begin September or February at the start of the semester. However, this is not a firm requirement. The Short Term program is a great way for international students who are interested in experiencing Canada, and its culture, for the first time. The Cowichan Valley International Student’s Short Term Program provides learners with the opportunity to build an unforgettable and positive first impression of what Canada has to offer.
Students who are interested in applying for this the Short Term Program should be aware that acceptance is based on available spaces in schools. Students will not have the opportunity to choose a school, but will have one assigned.
