Before you start

How do I become a E-QIP student?

Get started by filling out this form or sending us an email at hello@eqip123.com.

Before starting classes, prospective students are asked to complete a quick language placement. This will allow us to determine your level and find the learning path that best suits you.

Is there a Registration fee?

A one time $50 registration fee applies per student to make sure the onboarding is smooth.

Do I need a visa to study at E-QIP?

Canadian students

Canadian students and permanent residents do not need to do any special paperwork to enroll in E-QIP.

Foreign students

In general, visitors to Canada can study at E-QIP for up to 6 months without a study permit. Please note that E-QIP cannot assist in obtaining study permits (which are needed for study periods of 6 months or more). We invite you to read the terms that apply to your case on the following websites:

Is it possible to switch programs?

You are enrolled in private lessons and want to take group courses.

You can switch from one program to another. You will meet with a teacher to assess your level in the language you wish to study. If no class is still open, we will ask you to wait until a sufficient number of students are enrolled at your level before starting the course.

What is the cancellation policy?

Registration fees and administrative costs (commission agent if applicable, assignment fees for accommodation, cancellation of visas, etc.) will not be refunded in case of cancellation at the beginning or during the session. A cancellation fee ($100) will be added as well.

Before the classes start

For private lessons and group classes, a full refund less the non- refundable fee is possible.

After classes have started

For private lessons, a full refund less non-refundable fees and hours completed is possible.

For group lessons, if you have completed less than half of the courses provided in your initial contract, a partial refund of 85% will be granted if you cancel your contract during the first week of classes, 70% if you cancel your contract between the first week and half of the contract. If you have completed half of the courses provided in your contract, no refund will be granted except for some circumstances.
