LLI University/College Pathway Program

London Language Institute can assist students looking to use the SDS Immigration stream through our Diploma programming or through our partner pathway whereby qualified students can receive a conditional letter of acceptance into a post secondary program based on completion of LLI programming..


London Language Institute is proud to offer a University/College Pathway Program for international students (ESL) seeking entrance into high school, college and university. LLI had developed a curriculum that prepares students for academic courses taught in English and has relationships with local high schools, colleges and universities across Canada and into the United States.

General admission requirements for university entrance:

Entrance to university can vary with minimum requirements typically asking for a 75% average in the last year of high school. This minimum will not meet requirements for all universities and programs. Some of our university partners may require minimum GPA’s over 88%. Admission to university is not solely based on GPA scores but also includes an assessment of the courses that were taken in the last year of high school. Some Majors require specific prerequisite courses.

LLI College and University Pathway

Preparing students for success at college and university

LLI’s Academic Preparation 1 and Preparation 2 are prerequisite programs for entrance into college (Diploma) and undergraduate (Degree) university programs.  Successful completion of these programs will meet the conditions for English proficiency and satisfy the Conditional Letter of Acceptance.

Please contact our office for specific information on GPA requirements or prerequisites. We also invite you to complete the university pathway screening link and we can immediately assess your admissibility to a desired program.
