"My experience in the Intensive English Program was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only did I learn a language, but I also learned about different cultures. By studying in Canada, you learn not only from the program, but you also practice the language in a great environment. It's definitely an excellent opportunity."
"I am very lucky to have chosen the EIP program at the University of Ottawa, for I have gained a lot. I have improved my speaking, writing and reading skills. In addition to the skills I have learned, I appreciate the EIP program because of the excellent team; my teachers were very helpful and understanding. The people in charge of the program have also delighted me since I started this program. The activities (outings) organized for international students make you feel like you are at home and you can discover more about the Canadian culture. The campus itself is so impressive with its architecturally designed buildings. The excellent location of the campus is just perfect; everything is close by (restaurants, malls, coffee shops, clubs, museums and galleries). I've really enjoyed my studies at this famous university."
“During the three months I spent in the EIP program, I had the wonderful and unique opportunity to not only gain the required knowledge in the English language, but also to meet and be taught by dedicated world class professors who were masters of their craft. The entire personnel of the EIP, starting with coordinators and finishing with the professors, offered invaluable input into my educational process. Every person involved in the student experience was kind and accepting which I really appreciated. I really enjoyed the professional but welcoming atmosphere created for the students which furthered my successful completion of my language requirements. Thank you EIP!” Zhandos, Kazakhstan
“I have benefited a lot from EIP. I am now a student at the Faculty of Social Sciences. However, I would not be succeeding at the university without the experience I gained in EIP. I got to meet many friends from different cultures and we learned from each other. All the professors in EIP are helpful and patient. The outings held each Thursday helped us to adapt to Canadian culture quickly. I strongly recommend that you apply to this program because you will learn a lot from it!”
“The University of Ottawa has a great multicultural environment. Thanks to the events and activites organized by EIP, I met students from all over the world and also got to know the Canadian culture. I enriched my English and had so much fun at the same time. It was an incredible experience.” Jamal, Yemen
“The English Intensive Program has certainly broadened my horizon and made me more confident. I gained in-depth understanding on how to better communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds, which will be of great value for my studies and future career.”
