Free ESL at KPU

Since April 1, some applicants to Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s English as a Second Language (ESL) programs may be eligible to receive their ESL instruction tuition-free.

A joint initiative between the Canadian federal government, the ministries of Advanced Education and Jobs, Tourism and Innovation are making funding available to cover the costs of ESL tuition for some ESL students at Kwantlen.

Seventeen B.C. universities, colleges and institutions that provide ESL are eligible for the tuition-free initiative.

Those eligible under this initiative include Canadian citizens and permanent residents enrolling in Kwantlen’s English Language Studies Diploma or English Language Preparatory (ELPP) Program, as well as individuals in Canada on a work permit as part of Citizen and Immigration Canada’s Live-in Caregiver Program. For a complete list of ESL tuition-free eligibility and details on how to qualify, visit www.kwantlen.ca/esltuitionfree
