University Pathway: U-Prep and Bridging Channels

  • Two University pathway channels prepare you for successful study at the University of Saskatchewan.
  • We work closely with International Admissions and the College of Graduate Studies and Research to help our international students prepare for academic degree-study in English.
  • When you arrive, you will be placed either by placement testing or by qualifying test scores.
  • Both channels (U-Prep and Bridging) teach the high-advanced English and academic skills for successful university study.
  • U-Prep 2 and U-Bridge 2 meet the university’s English proficiency requirement. When you pass either one of these of these classes, you do not have to write any other English admission tests for most colleges and degree programs.
