    Conditional Admission Through EAP

    Applicants from eligible countries† who do not meet George Brown’s English language entry requirements may be offered a conditional acceptance for College diploma, postgraduate and degree programs which will be subject to successful completion of level 8 or 9 of George Brown’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program.

    Please see here for more information on the EAP Application Process:

    † For applicants from some countries (e.g., countries where English is the first/official language and countries in South Asia) we are not able to provide the option of a Letter of Acceptance to the George Brown College English for Academic Purposes Program (EAP) as it has been our experience that Study Permit applicants from specific countries are rejected by the Canadian visa office for a Study Permit (visa) when there is an ESL (English as a Second Language) component requested. For applicants from South Asian countries (India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) it is highly recommended to submit official TOEFL or IELTS scores.

    Using an Authorized Agent

    George Brown College maintains a network of authorized international agents who play an important role in aiding prospective students through their application process while representing the College in a professional and trustworthy manner at all times. Some agents charge a fee for visa counselling. We encourage students who plan to use the services of an agent representative to ask, in advance, what those fees are. Please note that George Brown College does not process applications from unauthorized agents. 
If you have any questions or concerns related to hiring an agent please contact the appropriate Recruitment Manager for your region.
