The ELC will deliver the Intensive Academic English Program (IAEP) remotely for the Spring/Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 terms. Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Information and updates can be found at

The English Language Centre provides quality programming to students and community members whose first language is not English. Our programs may be suited for you if you need to meet university English language proficiency admission requirements, hope to improve your academic English or are already studying at UM and want to enhance your academic English language skills.

There are many reasons to study with the English Language Centre:

  • Smaller class sizes allow you to receive more individualized attention from instructors.
  • Our classrooms at UM's Fort Garry campus help you become familiar with the campus where many of our students go on to complete degree programs.
  • Field trips, social activities, workshops and other events provide opportunities to meet people and learn about Canadian culture while practicing your language skills.  
  • Our homestay program lets you live with a local Canadian family while you're here.
