Our UBP course is designed for students wishing to attend an English-speaking post-secondary institution. Students must pass the UBP entrance test to take this course. The course lasts eight weeks, with 25 hours of teacher contact time per week. Students work on general and academic English skills as well as post-secondary-specific skills such as research and referencing. On passing UBP, students may proceed directly to one of our pathway institutions or apply to any other post-secondary program.
