- While it is common for new university students to struggle with demanding course work and the adjustment from high school to university, international students have the additional challenges of adjusting to a new culture, living in Canada, being away from home, and for some – studying in a second language, i.e. English. Booth University College works in cooperation with Heartland International English School, to provide international students the option to take part in a multi-skill orientation program that will help with their transition to life in Canada and prepare them for success in their university studies. Through this program, international students are given the opportunity to improve their English skills without the pressure of university course work. Features of this program include:
- Academic English classes that prepare students for essay writing, note-taking, presenting and speaking in class, and other academic skills.
- Initial settlement support that helps students adjust to life in Canada by assisting them with immediate details such as setting up a bank account, obtaining a Manitoba Health card, navigating the public transit system and more.
Heartland’s two-week International English School is held in August just prior to the start of the school year. Students wishing to take this optional course are fully responsible for the costs of this program and must register directly with the Heartland International English School. Booth University College is not responsible for students registered in this program and cannot guarantee admission to Booth University College programs based on completion of the Heartland International English School program without having previously met all admission criteria set forward by Booth University College.
