So you have scored a bit less than expected in IELTS, missed the chance of joining the destined course in Canada within a hair's breadth? What's your next step? Giving the exam again? Or rerouting your career path? We suggest neither! Yes, neither. Now, in a student-friendly move, certain Canadian universities are doing away with the IELTS score to allow students take part in their higher studies' programmes.
This move came as a relief to majority of the students who have settled with lesser scores than required to get into the courses of their interest in top universities or institutes. However, the prospective students need to prove their English language efficiency through other ways – providing proofs that their medium of instruction of the latest course (3 years) is English, or other documents.
Do The Students Without IELTS Get Visa Easily?
The prospective students who scored less or not have attempted the aforementioned language proficiency test, have to submit to the consular officers their enrollment into the colleges which have accepted their application sans IELTS score. Provided, the students should have to get a letter confirming that their former education was in English and they are fluent enough in the same.
Here are the universities or colleges that admit students without IELTS
University of Regina
University of Winnipeg
University of Saskatchewan
Seneca College, Toronto
Apart from the above-mentioned universities, some of the other Canadian universities are coming up with a new approach to relieve students from Language stress – These universities offer a course in English to prepare the students for their actual and destined course. However, the students after the completion of their long-term course are in no ways allowed to stay in the country beyond 3 months. This move ensures that only international students with genuine study aspirations enter the country and makes sure to grant visas on the same basis.
