Flexible Start Dates at ILSC

Program start dates 2024/2025

ILSC Language Schools offers ongoing flexible start dates for most of our programs. Programs run in 4-week sessions, Specialty programs usually begin on the first day of a session or on set start dates, but students taking General programs can start on any Monday year-round.* Programs run subject to enrolment.

*For the best experience we encourage students NOT to start on week four of the session, which falls on the following dates in 2024: Jan 22, Feb 19, Mar 18, Apr 15, May 13, Jun 10, Jul 8, Aug 5, Sep 2, Sep 30, Oct 28, Nov 25. If you start on the 2nd or 3rd Monday of a session, you may be placed in an ongoing class.
