If you are interested in attending a Canadian University but need to improve your English level, consider Eurocentres Atlantic Canada for your English studies. At Eurocentres, we have developed partnerships with several Canadian Universities and Colleges to ensure our students have a wide spectrum of choices when it comes to completing their undergraduate degrees and diplomas. Our partners have established programs in Business, Education, Culinary Arts, Tourism and Hospitality, Nutrition, Science Communication, and much more. Eurocentres staff will help you to make the best choice of school based on your field of interest. Our University Pathway Consultant will liaise with your university, help you with the application process, and answer any questions that you have about going to university in Canada.


Our Pathway Program is ideal for students whose academic grades meet the requirements for their desired school and program, but whose English proficiency does not meet the University or College’s required level. Through this program, we will work with students to improve their English level so that they may be granted acceptance to the university program of their choice. The unique aspect of this process is that students are not required to complete an English Language Proficiency Test at the end of their studies at Eurocentres, such as IELTS or TOEFL. Our university partners have granted our students this courtesy based on their trust in our thorough curriculum, our established programs, and our professional and experienced teaching staff. Eurocentres’ respected reputation among its partners drives us to surpass others in our field, and we know that this determination will ensure that we prepare our students well so that they may begin their university careers with the confidence to excel in their studies

Acadia University was ranked the #2 University in Canada (for Undergraduate Programs) by McLean’s magazine in 2014. The university offers more than 200 degree combinations as well as 2,864 courses spread throughout the faculties of Arts, Pure & Applied Science, and Professional Studies. At Acadia, the faculty to student ratio is 1:15, which lends itself to small class sizes with their countless award-winning professors.

Acadia has a large international student community, with over 50 countries represented throughout their student body. Professors use a hands-on approach which, combined with a technology rich environment and curriculum, gives students a competitive advantage. Students get the best of both worlds in that they are provided with top-level classrooms, labs, and field facilities that are characteristic of a much larger university, while enjoying the comfort of a smaller, quaint university town that is rich with culture and beautiful scenery. The community of Wolfville, Nova Scotia is known for its perfect balance of urban and rural living, giving students the opportunity to experience Canadian living in a better-rounded environment.
