  • While the U-Prep Channel delivers academic skill development combined with advanced English learning, the Bridging Channel provides even more since students are able to take university classes while they qualify for full admission to the University.
  • The Bridging Channel goes beyond U-Prep with tutorial approach to support skills development, content learning and language enrichment as they study university classes.
  • Completing all parts of the Bridging Channel earns university credit for three classes (U-Bridge 2 and two university classes).
  • IELTS or TOEFL scores can earn placement into both channels.
