The Pre-University Program (Vancouver Campus)


When international students first enter a North American university, many are often surprised by the gap between the academic English language skills expected of them compared to their own general English language skills. Combined with a new environment and differences in culture, international students can feel overwhelmed and under-prepared; in fact, many find themselves struggling academically.

Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Pre-University Program focuses on helping international students overcome these obstacles. International students who meet the University’s admission standards, but who require additional training in academic English and learning skills, will be placed in the Pre-University Program. This positive and supportive learning environment prepares them for academic success upon entry to the degree program of their choice.
