If your English is not strong enough to embark on a full-time Master’s program, Saint Michael’s may offer you conditional admittance into its program. This means you may improve your English in our Intensive English or Academic English courses until you reach the required level, and then transfer into the Master’s program. What better way to learn TESOL than to study in such a program yourself?
