Students enrolled in the Haggerty English Language Program, whether for Intensive English or the Pathway Program, will start in one of the following levels depending on placement:
- Level 1 – Beginner
- Level 2 – Intermediate
- Level 3 – Advanced
- Level 4 – Academic Purposes
A level can be completed in one 16-week semester (Fall/August start or Spring/January start).
Students may be able to complete a level by enrolling in our intensive 5-Week Summer Session.
Students have completed the Pathway Program and meet our English language proficiency requirements for admission to Undergraduate or Graduate programs upon completion of Level 4 – Academic Purposes.
Students in the Intensive English Program are not required to complete Level 4 – Academic Purposes. All students will receive a certificate of completion indicating the highest level they have finished.
The total time in the program will depend upon the student’s initial placement level. Below is a table to demonstrate the duration based on the level that a student starts in.
Placement Level Duration
Level 1 16 months
Level 2 12 months
Level 3 8 months
Level 4 4 months
*This is only an estimate and does not include factors that may cause a student to require more or less time to complete. Enrolling in the intensive 5-week Summer Session may decrease the duration time.
