FAQS

Do you have any question about studying English at ILSC?

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT STUDYING ENGLISH IN ILSC

If you do not find the answer, please contact a representative filling the form below

What is ILSC?

ILSC is an English language institute first established in Vancouver BC in 1991. It has almost 30 years of experience in English language teaching for foreign students and it has schools in several locations around the world, such as Vancouver, Toronto, Montréal, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sidney.

Why should I choose an English course at ILSC?

ILSC has nearly 30 years of experience in teaching ESL and offers around 110 English language programs and courses that fit every student, so you’ll have a wide variety to choose from. Moreover, ILSC lets students customize their program by choosing different core elective courses and skills electives. All of this contributes to a great learning experience abroad that will surely benefit you and help you achieve all your goals.

Is there a minimum age to apply for an English course at ILSC?

Yes. For most programs the minimum age to apply is 16 years old at the beginning of the course. For the family camps program is 7 years, for the junior camps is 8, and for the ESL High School Bridge program is being at least 12 years old.

Do students need a High School diploma to apply? Can they apply if they are still in High School?

Yes, you can apply if you’re still in high school, as long as you meet the minimum age requirements.

Is there any deadline to apply?

There’s no deadline, since most courses start every Monday, but as you'll probably need to apply for an entry permit or a visa, you'll want to apply as soon as possible.

How is my English proficiency level determined?

You take a placement test the first day at school.

Do I receive any certification or documents by the end of the course?

You receive a student progress report and a certificate at the end of your studies. The certificate will not be given if you miss more than 20% of your classes.

I am not a student in my home country. Can I take these English language courses with a student visa?

Yes, you don’t need to be a student to apply for a course with a student visa. You only need to meet the minimum requirements.

Can I enroll on these ESL courses with a tourist visa or a visa waiver?

Yes, you can apply with a tourist visa or a visa waiver. However, if you’ll study for more than six months (Canada), or for more than three months (Australia), you’ll need to apply for a study permit.

What are the school’s English language levels?

In ILSC there are 10 different levels: 4 beginner levels, 4 intermediate levels and 2 advanced levels.

What is the schedule of classes? Hours per week?

It depends on whether it’s a full-time intensive, full time or part-time am/pm schedule, but it goes from 25 weekly hours to around 10 hours for the PM part-time schedule. As students can personalize their programs with core and elective courses, schedules may vary according to this. Schedules also include a few more hours in Australia, from 33 lessons a week (30 hours) to 14.5 lessons (12 hours).

What is the housing availability?

Homestays with different board options and private student residences. You can also make your own arrangements.

Can I use the school facilities?

Every ILSC facility and service is open for students.

Are there any extracurricular activities?

Yes. In some cases, on-campus activities may be free, others may have a voluntary fee and others activities outside campus have extra costs such as tickets, transportation, etc.

Do I need to buy health insurance?

If you’re studying for more than three months with a student visa in Australia, you need to obtain the mandatory OSHC. In Canada, coverage will vary, but most likely you won’t me covered by the province’s health system. In such cases, we recommend obtaining health insurance to cover what the OSHC doesn’t cover, or for coverage in case you’re not covered by the province’s health insurance system.

Are there any scholarships for the English courses?

There are not scholarships offered for the English programs at ILSC.
