An academic bridging course has been created within the Sociology department for students who have precarious immigration status (including no status) and have faced barriers accessing post-secondary studies as a result.
The course provides an introduction to key concepts and debates in migration studies and allows students to upgrade their critical reading, writing and speaking skills. Achieving a grade of 'B' or better in the course can open a channel to admission to programs in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies and Glendon College in addition to select programs in other Faculties.
If you do not need academic bridging to confirm eligibility to study at York, but hold precarious immigration status, you may still be eligible for admission under the Access for Students with Precarious Immigration Status program.
The Bridging course is not appropriate if you require English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction.
