MELD Program Success Enters Third Year



For a third year the McMaster English Language Development Diploma (MELD) has welcomed students from around the world to develop their English language skills.

The program, intended to be taken by international students who wish to study at an English-speaking university but who have not yet achieved the minimum English proficiency to enrol in a first year program.

This year 167 students are registered MELD students – a dramatic rise from 84 students last year and just 36 students in its first year.

MELD students are engaged in a variety of ways by their instructors and by Humanities students enrolled in the Art of Leadership: Mentorship program. Students enrolled in MELD are also given a MELD passport – a booklet which contains a list of extracurricular activities that help students feel connected with the McMaster community and boosts their English-language development.

For more information on the MELD program, please visit the MELD program website.
