University of Niagara Falls Canada signs pathway agreement with ILAC
On Tuesday 16 January, University of Niagara Falls Canada and ILAC announced a new pathway agreement. The pathway allows students enrolled in ILAC’s pathway programmes to fulfill their English proficiency requirements for UNF programmes, by transferring directly from the qualifying university ILAC pathway programmes in Toronto or Vancouver.
This means that UNF will now accept ILAC Pathway Level 3.3 as equivalent to an IELTS score of 6.5. International students looking to pursue their post-secondary studies in Canada now have an additional pathway to help them find their way to UNF.
Cyndi McLeod, CEO of GUS Canada, said: “We are thrilled to embark on this exciting new pathway partnership, creating a new avenue for students to transition directly into our programs from an ILAC pathway. This collaboration embodies the spirit of educational accessibility and global connectivity, opening doors for aspiring learners worldwide.”
