When you complete the EAP level, you will receive a General Arts and Science Ontario College Certificate and may apply to other Sheridan programs without further language testing.

Hands-on learning

The ESL program encourages classroom interaction. You will work on group projects and assignments that require interaction with your peers and in the community. You will practice speaking, listening, reading, pronunciation and writing in a classroom and in labs. You will also learn to do presentations, research topics, take notes and write texts in English.

Highly qualified educators

Professors in the English Language Studies program are TESL Ontario certified and include educators holding PhDs and master’s degrees. They are knowledgeable in the most innovative and proven methods of teaching English as a second language.

Five levels of instruction

  1. Foundations
  2. Pre-intermediate
  3. Intermediate
  4. Advanced
  5. English for Academic Purposes

You will be placed in one of these levels based on the results of your ESL Placement Test, IELTS Academic, TOEFL (iBT) or Duolingo scores. See Admission Requirements for details.

Examples of what you will learn to do in this program:

  • Express likes and dislikes in everyday situations. (Foundations)
  • Produce short stretches of speech while discussing basic topics, employing pronunciation of individual sounds and word and sentence stress with inaccuracies. (Foundations)

At the EAP level, you will take one General Education course of your choice for credit in your postsecondary program along with an introductory "Navigating Digital Environments" course.

    Advanced Entry Challenge Exams

    Get credit for what you know

    Sheridan recognizes and appreciates that advanced learning doesn’t always require standard classroom instruction, and that opportunities to advance skills and learn new technologies are everywhere.

    If you have significant knowledge and experience in programming, web development, database and/or networking, you may choose to complete Advanced Entry Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (AEPLAR) Challenge Exams for academic credit towards your Sheridan Computer Systems Technology advanced diploma.

    How do Challenge Exams work?

    AEPLAR Challenge Exams are administered by and through the Sheridan College Assessment Centre or through an approved Test Centre. There are fees to write each exam (an Assessment Centre fee and a Challenge Exam fee).

    Your completed Challenge Exam(s) will be evaluated to determine whether you’re eligible for credit in one or more courses within the identified program streams.

    Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and Advanced Standing credits are subject to Sheridan’s policies and procedures. Learn more about Sheridan’s Credit Transfer policies and procedures.

    I have previous postsecondary education. Should I write a Challenge Exam?

    No. Challenge Exams are designed for applicants with knowledge and experience gained outside of formal education. If you have previous postsecondary education, we encourage you to apply for Advanced Standing instead — you may be eligible to apply your previously earned credits towards your new program at Sheridan.

    What subjects can I complete Challenge Exams for?

    Challenge Exams for applicants to the Computer Systems Technology – Software Development and Network Engineering program are designed to test skills in specific knowledge streams within this program:

    • Programming – Introductory
    • Programming – .NET
    • Programming – Advanced Java
    • Networking
    • Web Development
    • Operating Systems
    • Databases
    • Software Design
    • Mobile App Development – Android
    • Mobile App Development – iOS
    • Game Development – UNITY
    • Wireless

    You can also choose to complete Challenge Exams for specific individual courses within the Computer Systems Technology program.

    Complete a free self-assessment test to help you determine whether Challenge Exams are a good option for you.

    How do I apply to complete a Challenge Exam?

    Step 1: Make sure you meet the program admission requirements

    You must meet the program admission requirements to be eligible for admission and PLAR.

    Step 2: Complete a free self-assessment

    Complete a free self-assessment test for each knowledge stream you wish to challenge. This will help you determine whether your current skills will enable you to succeed in the Challenge Exam(s).

    Step 3: Apply to Sheridan's Computer Systems Technology advanced diploma program

    Apply to the Computer Systems Technology – Software Development and Network Engineering program.

    To be eligible to complete Challenge Exams for this program, you must select "Advanced Entry" as the level of the program on your application.

    Step 4: Follow the instructions to complete your Challenge Exam(s)

    Once Sheridan receives your application, we’ll send you an email with instructions on how to register and pay for your Challenge Exam(s). Follow those instructions.

    Once you’ve completed your Challenge Exam(s), subject matter experts in Sheridan’s Faculty of Applied Science and Technology will evaluate them within 10 business days. The Faculty will forward your results to the Office of the Registrar, and any approved credit transfers will be posted in your Credit Transfer centre. Exam feedback will not be provided.

    Step 5: Accept your offer of admission and pay your program fees

    If you receive an offer of admission to Sheridan, please follow the instructions to confirm your offer and pay your fees by the due dates indicated in order to reserve your spot in the program.

    We wish you success in this process and look forward to seeing you at Sheridan!

    Learning Outcomes

    The primary objective of the English Language Studies (ESL) program at Sheridan College is to prepare non-native speakers of English to successfully function in an English speaking postsecondary environment. As such, the program aims to:

    • Develop English language skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing by having learners engage in a range of communicative tasks and activities from Canadian Language Benchmarks levels 4 to 9.
    • Encourage the use of strategies, such as contextualization of new vocabulary, use of previewing, skimming and scanning techniques, and knowledge of text organization and discourse markers, to aid the comprehension of written and spoken language.
    • Expand the learner’s use of grammatically correct and situationally and culturally appropriate language in speaking and writing for effective communication in a variety of interpersonal and academic situations.
    • Create awareness about learning styles and college resources, encourage the adoption of study skills, and increase competence in the use of technology so that learners may more effectively achieve academic goals.
    • Build cross-cultural understanding and confidence in using language through collaboration with classmates, increased participation in college activities, and increased interaction within the college and the larger community in order to complete class assignments such as surveys, reports and presentations.

    Program Summary


    Educational philosophy

    Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design curriculum and its delivery are designed to address current social issues pertinent to the design industry. This enables students to broaden their understanding of their place within the world.

    Fundamental to the vision of the program is the balance of creative and conceptual thinking with the technical and business aspects of the profession. Courses follow a logical sequence with the degree of difficulty building vertically from first year to fourth year.

    The various streams provide a range of design problems building in size and scope, from simple to complex in various design sectors. The curriculum builds on fundamental introductions that ensures a strong foundation for students to apply additional more complex learning and skills developed later in the program.

    Studio projects are designed to mimic professional practice and require applied theory, creativity and strong technical knowledge. Curriculum is also connected horizontally across each semester to help support the learning in courses happening simultaneously. This demonstrates the inter-connected knowledge and skills required to practice in the industry.

    The program provides many opportunities that expose students to practicing professionals and professional practice. Industry leaders and representatives from professional associations like ARIDO and IDC are invited into the classroom as jurors and guest speakers throughout the four years. The internship also provides professional design work experience for students before they enter their final year of study.

    The curriculum is student-centric and designed to equip students with the skills that are required for entry-level design positions and advanced study. Manual skills such as drafting, drawing and model making are developed alongside digital skills using current software. Students are also well-versed in the applicable building codes and regulations required to practice in Ontario. Students are exposed to valuable research skills and encouraged to continue their learning past graduation.

    Program goals

    Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program aspires to:

    • Develop confident, creative and critical thinkers that can solve a variety of problems thoughtfully, improving the quality of the built environment and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
    • Equip students with the tools to think independently and ethically to ensure technically, environmentally, and socially responsible decision-making.
    • Deliver current and relevant curriculum that incorporates equity, diversity and inclusion. This encourages students to create spaces that foster inclusivity and look at design from various perspectives within diverse communities, involving numerous stakeholders.
    • Inform students regarding the various facets of the profession, engaging them with designers and industry affiliates.
    • Encourage continuous professional and personal growth, instilling a desire to contribute to the profession and society at large. The program encourages students to become active participants in the design community, become members of their local Association, write their NCIDQ exams, give back to the community and become progressive leaders in the profession.
    • Prepare graduates for entry-level design positions, equipped with the required knowledge and skills for employment in the diverse design industry, ensuring they possess the body of knowledge necessary to respond to social and environmental issues, while designing interior spaces that are technically proficient, code-compliant, conceptually strong, sustainable and all-inclusive.
    • Provide enhanced opportunities for students to pursue post-graduate studies, employment, research and/or further their academic studies and/or credentials.

    Writer-in-Residence program

    Each year, Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Creative Writing & Publishing (CW&P) program hosts a Writer-in-Residence. The 8-month residency is awarded to a writer who embodies the distinctiveness and dynamism of the & in our program name.

    In addition to working on at least one specific writing project of their own during their tenure, the Writer-in-Residence is responsible for creative leadership, mentoring and public outreach in the area of creative writing and/or publishing.

    How our Writer-in-Residence supports Sheridan students

    Students in our CW&P program benefit from the work and mentorship of our Writer-in-Residence, who:

    • shares their expertise and experience as a creative professional and working writer;
    • performs public readings from their recently published work and/or current work-in-progress;
    • organizes public lectures and/or workshops; and
    • works with faculty to augment existing curriculum in the area of creative writing, publishing and/or creativity.

    2023–24 Writer-in-Residence

    Kate Cayley, Sheridan's Writer-in-Residence

    Award-winning fiction writer, playwright and poet Kate Cayley is joining Sheridan as the 2023–24 CW&P Writer-in-Residence.

    Cayley has published two short story collections and three collections of poetry, and her plays have been performed in Canada, the U.S. and the UK. She has won the Trillium Book Award, an O. Henry Prize and the Mitchell Prize for Poetry, and been a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction, the Firecracker Award for Fiction, the ReLit Award for both fiction and poetry, and the K.M. Hunter Award for Fiction.

    Her writing has appeared in such literary publications as Brick, Electric Literature, Joyland, Best Canadian Poetry and Best Canadian Stories, and she has been a writer-in-residence at McMaster University and the Toronto Public Library.

    "Kate’s diverse work plumbs meaning, strangeness and beauty from the spaces we inhabit, even in our domestic lives, while tackling some of the big philosophical questions we all face," says Dr. Genevieve Amaral, Associate Dean, School of Humanities and Creativity. "Our Sheridan community welcomes her capacious intellect, limpid style and wonderful mentorship with full hearts, open ears, and pens, paper and keyboards at the ready!"

    Apprenticeship Exemption Test

    The Apprenticeship Exemption Test (AET) provides a chance for students who are learning a skilled trade to bypass in-class studies.

    In most cases, you need to score 70% or higher to pass the AET. If you score lower than 70%, you'll need to wait three months before you can try again (with some exceptions for certain exams).

    Apprenticeship Exemption Tests are administered at the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga, through Sheridan's Assessment Centre.

    Learn more about the AET, including eligibility criteria, available tests and how to register.

    Sheridan is a Ministry-approved Apprenticeship Exemption Test centre, authorized through the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training & Skills Development (MLITSD), for both apprentices and non-apprentices.
