CultureWorks and Algoma University Launch Canada’s First Digital Year 1 University + Language Program

CultureWorks ESL, in partnership with Algoma University Computer Science, announces the launch of Canada’s first online Year 1 university plus English language program, starting in September, 2021.

Applications for the new online Year 1 program are now open for international students. The new Digital Year 1 University Program means they can start university this fall and take all first year university courses plus English language courses in a combined one-year program – fully online from their home country.  The virtual first year university program provides unprecedented opportunities for students who wish to begin their undergraduate studies without the challenges of travelling during the global pandemic.

The first Digital Year 1 University Programs to launch this September are for Algoma University Computer Science programs starting this fall. The online Year 1 university plus language program is designed for international students who are slightly below the English admission requirements for university and who wish to begin their undergraduate studies in the fall. Students can take year 1 online, and year 2 on campus when they are ready. 

Opening new doors for international students

“In our world of uncertainty, the Digital Year 1 University Program provides a surefire pathway for international students to complete year one university from home, saving them time and travel”, says CultureWorks founder Tina Bax. “Integrating digital technology into pathway programs is more critical than ever in the education space. The new digital Year 1 program is a great example of the power of technology in opening new doors for international students.”

The new Digital Year 1 University + Language Program is designed for international students who apply for conditional acceptance into an undergraduate degree program, and are slightly below the English language admission requirement. The online program features live classes in real time with Algoma University professors and CultureWorks faculty as well as asynchronous studies. The program allows students to complete their first year university credits and required English language courses within 12 months online from their home country.
