Conditional Admittance to the MATESOL
If your English is not strong enough to embark on a full-time Master’s Program in TESOL, but your other application documentation is acceptable, Saint Michael’s may offer you conditional admittance into its MATESOL program. This means you may complete our Intensive English courses before transferring to the Master’s Program.
*Exceptions may be made for applicants whose native language is English or completed an undergraduate degree in an English-speaking country.
