Academic success in Canada starts at Global Village.

Global Village has established pathway partnerships with over 15 top-tier universities and colleges to provide students with a seamless transition into their desired post-secondary institution. Through these partnerships, students can achieve their academic goals and pursue their desired careers. By completing Global Village’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program, students meet the English language proficiency requirement for college and university admissions.

In addition, Global Village Pathway institutions accept IELTS test scores as proof of English proficiency, and students can prepare for these tests through GV’s test preparation courses. This ensures that students are well-prepared for Canadian higher education and can confidently pursue their academic aspirations.

🎓 Have you met our newest graduate, Dandan? 🐶

Dandan is another of our recent graduates at GV Victoria. His teachers said he was a good boy, but he didn’t speak too much. He was a very good listener and a very popular student! 

😅 Thanks for not peeing on our freshly cleaned floors, Dandan!
