At MTC, all instruction is in English. In order to be successful, you must have sufficient English proficiency in reading, writing, listening and speaking comprehension.
For most Certificate Programs, you must complete an Entrance Exam called The Wonderlic Exam. In most cases we offer a preparation class and practice questions that you can complete free of charge, before sitting for the Wonderlic.
While instruction is always in English, these classes do not require the same level of English proficiency as the Certificate Programs. In order to be successful, students should possess a basic command of the language.
Applicants with Qualifications Earned in Other Countries
If you have earned the equivalent of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma from outside Canada and would like to register for a Certificate Program, in most cases you will need to write the Wonderlic Exam to gain admittance. Please see “Certificate Programs” for more information.
