Is English an additional language for you?
Make an appointment for the ESL placement test
An ESL assessment provides a snapshot of your current English as a second language skills to determine what level of ESL programming would be the best fit for you.
Second language speakers of English are encouraged, wherever possible, to take the Duolingo English Test (DET) for admission into Camosun. An additional online speaking and/or writing test may be required with an ELD Assessor (at no additional cost).

- Limited remote delivery of the Canadian Language Benchmark Placement Test (CLBPT) is also available for students unable to afford the DET fee.
- Limited English Language Development face-to-face placement assessments can be arranged for students unable to access the Duolingo or CLBPT remotely. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically reduced the number of face-to-face assessments the English Language Development department is able to offer.
