To register for any of the programs offered by ATC you must meet the following requirements:
  • Be 19 years old or over on the first day of the program,
  • Provide proof that you’ve completed high school or an equivalent level in your home country,

ESL Students
All courses are taught in English only.
Non-native English speakers who have English as their Second Language (ESL) must demonstrate a satisfactory level of English.  ATC requires that ESL students have a TOEFL score of at least 450 (paper-based) or 133 (computer-based) completed during the past two years.

ATC may also accepts students who have completed other English tests or exams (TOEIC, Cambridge. IELTS) on a case-by-case basis.

Students needing additional ESL training will be connected with one of our partner English Language Schools in Vancouver or Toronto.

Study Permit
As a foreign student, you most likely will need a Study Permit to study at ATC unless you take a course/programs of 6 months or less. You must then complete your course within the period authorized for your stay in Canada.

Generally speaking, a Study Permit will give you more flexibility including the possibility to apply for an extension from within Canada if you decide to continue studying in Canada.
To apply for your Study Permit in your country, you will need an Official Letter of Acceptance issued by ATC along with other documents. Please remember that processing of your application for a Study Permit may take a few months.

For comprehensive information about Study Permit, contact the Canadian Embassy/Consulate in your home country or visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.
