How to Apply and Enrol
Minimum Language Requirements
The NAIT ESL Program does not suit absolute beginners. Students must have some ability in English. To learn if you meet NAIT’s minimum language skills in Reading and Listening, you can take a free CLB online self-assessment. If you score lower than a CLB 3, you may not be ready to take ESL at NAIT. All students must take the ESL Placement Test when they arrive at NAIT.
