Applicants who do not meet UBC's minimum English language admission standard for an undergraduate program may be interested in the Conditional Admission Program (www.eli.ubc.ca/condadmission/index.html) offered through UBC's English Language Institute.
To qualify for this program, applicants must:
Successful completion of the Conditional Admission Program requires achieving a level of 600 in the UBC Certificate in English Language, with a minimum of 75% in each sub skill. Successful completion for students admitted to degree programs that require a first year English course also includes presentation of the minimum score required on the Language Proficiency Index (LPI).
Students admitted to the Conditional Admission Program are required to complete the program. Therefore, such students cannot substitute other English language proficiency exams to gain entry to the degree program.
Students admitted to the Conditional Admission Program must successfully complete the program within 12 months of first enrolling in the program.
