All other acceptable tests and results for admission can be found here.

  • Exemptions may be granted to international students from certain countries who have completed at least 3 years of formal academic studies in which English was the medium of instruction.
  • Students can also satisfy the English language proficiency requirement by successfully completing the EAP program offered by Hanson Language School. Applicants are required to obtain a minimum score on the English Placement Test before final approval and completion of their registration. As a result of widespread suspension of IELTS and other testing platforms during the COVID-19 pandemic, Cambrian College will temporarily accept the Duolingo English Test, IELTS Indicator and the TOEFL-iBT® Special Home Edition to demonstrate English Proficiency.

**Hanson College specializes in educating international students and only accepts non-Canadian applicants possessing valid study permits into programs for which it partners with Cambrian College.
