CES as a member of BAU Global

Addressing the challenges of helping students develop in an ever-changing global environment, Bahçeşehir University offers an English Preparatory program designed to prepare students to participate in their degree courses with English instruction. Further, to provide students with practical knowledge and experience of English in use, the university offers the opportunity for students to complete their ESL studies in one of our international locations.

CES was founded by BAU in July 2012, and opened its doors in November 2012 as a private English as a Second Language school with the aim to provide language services to international students in Toronto. When first opened, CES only enrolled students from BAU’s English Preparatory Program (in Istanbul). These students are required to complete the university’s Proficiency Exam (a pre-requisite to first-year entrance) at CES in Toronto, and CES is responsible for the preparation classes and invigilating, grading and final assessment of the exam.

Since its inception, CES ESL Classes in Toronto has also expanded its programming and has welcomed students from Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Panama, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, and Ukraine.

The CES curriculum and procedures have since been modified to reflect and address the needs of all international ESL students. In particular, our ESL program has been developed not only to match the requirements of Bahçeşehir’s English Preparatory Program, but also to allow for academic learning and practice at the university level. Our courses focus on fundamental language skills and natural English usage. This provides a certain advantage for our students because it ensures that they will graduate with a comprehensive knowledge directly applicable to Bahçeşehir University’s Proficiency Entrance Exam or any International Test of English such as TOEFL or IELTS.
