Welcome to Bridging Program for Women

The School of Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies at York University offers academic Bridging Courses for women who want to upgrade their writing and speaking skills and explore the possibility of university study.

  • Learn ... in a supportive group environment
  • Improve ... reading, writing and speaking skills
  • Explore ... your education options and potential
  • Prepare ... for future university study

Course participants must be 20 years of age or over, permanent residents of Ontario, and comfortable in both spoken and written English. A grade of 'B' or better offers admission to mature students to the Faculties of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies and Glendon in addition to some programs in other Faculties. The Bridging course is not appropriate if you require ESL instruction. If you have completed one full year or more of university or academic college studies, you may not need a bridging course as an admissions credential.
