English language skills are a must.
All Lakeland College classes are taught in English, so you'll need to be able to speak, write and understand English to be admitted to one of our programs.
If English is your second language, you must show English language proficiency in one of the following ways:
- Successfully completing a year of full time education in English in Canada, in another country where English is the official language of instruction or at a recognized school/institution that uses English as its primary language of instruction
- Successfully completing specific O level, GCSE, IGCSE or 6 credit transferable university level English language or literature course at an English language institution.
- An acceptable score on an English language evaluation test
See the drop downs below for more details on each of these qualifications.

It's simply not something you can decide a week or a month ahead of the start of an academic year. If you want to come to Canada as a student, the process takes time. Especially gathering the documents and then applying for your student study permit. Immigration Canada suggests you apply at least 4 to 6 months before your school term starts.
