King’s College Bridging program (K-Bridging)
This unique college preparatory course gives ICEAP Toronto students the tools to be more academically successful than their peers. Also, approximately 80% of ICEAP students receive first year King’s College entrance scholarships based on their school performance. For these scholarships, application is not required.
Benefits of the Program:
- The program was developed in cooperation with King’s University College professors, giving students the opportunity to quickly adapt and become successful in their university studies.
- Intensive English learning (30 hours per week) allows students to acquire academic English skills at an accelerated pace and to avoid taking unnecessary tests, such as IELTS.
- Weekly seminars and mentoring sessions from university graduates assist our students with the strategies to learn in an academic environment.
- The program’s emphasis is on written projects, which are generally difficult for international students. K-Bridging students are able to write a 3,000-word research paper near the end of their program. In contrast, the written part of IELTS is only 250 words, which does not prepare them for writing the essays required in a rigorous academic university program.
- The program is 16 weeks. Students may be required to complete beginning and/or intermediate EAP programs, depending on their initial placement, prior to enrolling in the King’s Bridging Program.
