Our Toronto centre is located at York University about 30 minutes by metro from the city centre. The subway stop is located on campus and a five minute walk from the residence. This central location, on a modern university campus, provides a perfect base for a Canadian summer school experience. Our programme offers students language classes with a fun and dynamic activities programme we call active learning. The activities offer a balance of sports, cultural activities, tourist attractions and workshops.
Vending machines, coffees shops and a shopping mall are located on the campus for drinks and confectionery.
Meals served in large self-service dining hall in residence building or in the university food court.
Students will be welcomed upon arrival at the Embassy Summer office where they will register and get their room keys so that they can check into their rooms. Please have your student have his/her $100.00 deposit ready.
On the first evening there will be a welcome activity which is designed to ensure students have the opportunity to meet staff and other students and get to know more about the campus, its facilities and useful information which will help them during their stay.
