Academic English

For University Students

Master English, Get into College

OISE puts ambitious learners on the fast track to enter an English-speaking university. Students develop not only their English skills, but also the assertiveness and critical thinking to utilize those skills in the lecture hall, lab, academic conference, and beyond. OISE prepares students for international academic and professional communication. This transformation, like studying at a university in English, is not easy - but both are rewarding.

Individual Attention

Personal Tutors

OISE tutors are like personal trainers. They hold students to the high standards that their careers demand and challenge them to communicate their ideas effectively, using the English they have. As a result, students discover their power to influence people on an international scale.

With coaching from OISE, university students develop the English skills they need for academic success.
