Frequently Asked Questions
May I choose the school I wish to attend?

You may request a particular school but we cannot guarantee that you will be placed in the school of your choice. School placements are made based on careful consideration of the following: student needs and interests, seat availability, international student numbers at each school, the number of international students of the same nationality at each school, and homestay availability.

Do I have to take English as a Second Language (ESL) classes?

Yes. We encourage all international students to take ESL or an English transition class for as long as needed. Most international students usually need a semester or two of ESL study.
