FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES “SEAMLESS ENTRY” MEAN?
Seamless entry means that no outside language tests are required to enter you chosen partner school. Successful graduates of ILSC’s University Pathway program will be able to enter directly into their partner school once they have successfully completed the University Pathway program. For some of our US partners, students will take a placement assessment on their first day; however, ALL of our partners offer seamless entry. That’s right, no IELTS or TOEFL needed!
WHO IS A GOOD UNIVERSITY PATHWAY PROGRAM CANDIDATE?
Any student who has a desire to study at a North American, or Australian college, TAFE or university, the willingness to work hard in their classes, and a GPA that meets the application requirements of their chosen partner school is an ideal candidate for the University Pathway program.
HOW DOES THE PATHWAY PROGRAM PREPARE YOU FOR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY?
The University Pathway program will help you develop a much broader skill set than simply focusing on passing an IELTS or TOEFL test. Students will take courses to develop their academic English skills, such as University Preparation I and II, and Academic Speaking and Listening. Students will learn note-taking skills, research skills, essay writing and correct citation formats. By the time you start a program at your chosen partner school, you’ll have all the tools you need for success!
WHAT DOES IT COST?
There are no additional fees for the University Pathway program, just your regular ILSC course fees.
DO I GET A CERTIFICATE AT THE END OF THE PROGRAM?
Yes, you will receive an official ILSC University Pathways Certificate when you complete the program. A University Pathway Advisor will forward a copy of your Certificate of Completion to the college or university you wish to study at.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET AN ACCEPTANCE LETTER FROM MY COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY OF CHOICE?
Once we send off your completed application package you can typically expect to receive your conditional letter of acceptance within 5–10 business days.
HOW MUCH MONEY DO I HAVE TO PAY WHEN I FIRST APPLY TO A PARTNER COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY?
All partner schools require a non-refundable application fee. Some schools will also require the first semester’s tuition as a deposit. Ask your counsellor or the University Pathway team to find out!
HOW DO I KNOW THAT THIS PROGRAM REALLY WORKS?
Over the past decade, the University Pathway Program at ILSC has supported thousands of students to improve their skills and language and successfully transfer to their partner school of choice. With 1000+ students graduating from the program annually, our Canadian campus is celebrating 88% of our University Pathway students transferring to a partner school and 92% from Australia.
HOW DO I APPLY?
Speak to your agent or ILSC counsellor and sign up as a “University Pathway Student.” Make sure to apply for your chosen partner school when you apply to ILSC. To apply for your chosen partner school you will need:
- the partner school application form,
- a translated and notarized diploma and/or transcripts of senior secondary school and/or any other post-secondary education you have completed, and
- a copy of your passport.
Some schools and programs may require additional documents. Your agent or an ILSC counsellor will help you complete all of the necessary paperwork to apply for the University Pathway program, and a partner college, TAFE or university of your choice.
