English Language Centre

The English Language Centre at Western University is a comprehensive program in English for Academic Purposes located at Western’s Faculty of Education.


The English Language Centre at Western University prepares academically-qualified students to gain English language proficiency and cultural competence for success in academic undergraduate and graduate programs. The centre supports international students whose primary language is not English through intensive language instruction and tutorials. With a key mandate to advance student learning, the centre strives to provide the best academic, cultural and social education for developing students’ English language skills.

Many students enrolled in the centre’s program already hold a conditional or unconditional offer of admission to Western University, Brescia University College, Huron University College, or King's University College.

The program permits students to engage in university life at Western, and interact with other second-language learners as well as domestic students. The centre is a hub for cultural exchange that promotes intercultural understanding and global citizenship for domestic as well as international students. In offering a variety of community service opportunities for students, the centre serves the needs of local community partners.
