English Innovation Program (EIP)

Students can improve their English-language skills in a program that enriches traditional classroom learning with exciting thematic experiences and cultural excursions. Offered throughout the year for two- or four-week sessions at both of our safe and supportive campuses, the English Innovation Program engages students in a lively learning environment while they enjoy Canada’s most famous attractions and the great outdoors.

Visiting International Student Program (VIP)

Our Visiting International Student Program welcomes university students outside of Canada to visit Lakehead for four, six or twelve months to improve their English-language skills and take academic classes at the same time. For students with an IELTS of 4.5 or 5.0, the Visiting International Student Program complements English-language and academic study with social and cultural excursions to give them the full Canadian experience. VIP students have access to extensive student supports.
