This policy aims at improving national cohesion, unity and integration.

·        ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

This programme combines our two official languages (English and French), and a C language (German, Spanish, Arabic, Italian, Russian, Portuguese or Chinese).

Prospective students who hold a Baccalauréat should have scored at least 12/20 in English in their Baccalauréat, and those holding a GCE Advanced Level should have scored at least a "B" in French. The third language can be taken post A level or ab initio.

Our institute is already working in close collaboration with the Departments of English, German, Bilingual Studies, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Yaounde I. Lecturers from those departments teach at ISTI on a part time basis. In addition, we have at least four qualified Arabic teachers and three qualified Chinese teachers who teach evening classes in our School. 

During the first two sessions, Anglophones and Francophones are taught in separate classes. Anglophones are called TRIA (Trilingual Anglophones), francophone are called TRIF (trilingual francophone). Both classes are later joined in one at the third session and they pursue the degree programme as a class called TRIL (Trilingual).
