College-University Prepare Program

Study English with us, and we can help guide you to the program of study that interests you. IGK is proud to offer a comprehensive University - College Pathway Program in which students will automatically gain acceptance into several University programs throughout Canada. Each year countless IGK students move on to Canadian post-secondary education programs upon completion of our Upper-Intermediate or Advanced 2 level.


Conditional Admission

Students who have completed our University Pathway Program will meet the English language proficiency requirements; however, students must apply separately with all supporting academic documents for entry into our partnered universities. International Gateway Kelowna staff will assist with this process. Some of our pathway partners accept students at lower levels–please ask one of our experts for details.

English Level Requirement

To be accepted into Upper-Intermediate, students must pass Intermediate-2 or score 60% on our EAP200 exam. Students with an IELTS of 5.5 are also permitted. In order to take ENGL300, students must successfully complete ENGL200.
