English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program is an intensive, full-time academic English program that will help you build on and improve your language skills for success in college or university.

EAP will offer you the opportunity to study English in a supportive college environment while you develop effective academic communication skills by focusing on the key areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in communicative language activities, interactive exercises, group work and presentations. Through this program, you’ll also have access to helpful resources and services such as tutoring, the library and counselling.

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) programs are designed to prepare students for academic work in an English-speaking environment. Here are some advantages of taking an EAP program:

  1. Develop language skills: EAP programs help students develop their language skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Students can improve their academic vocabulary, learn how to structure academic papers, and practice using formal academic language.

  2. Prepare for academic life: EAP programs prepare students for academic life by helping them understand academic expectations, such as citing sources, using evidence to support arguments, and engaging in academic discussions. This can help students feel more confident and prepared when they enter university or college.

  3. Cultural exposure: EAP programs provide opportunities for students to learn about the culture and values of the English-speaking academic world. This can help students understand the academic expectations and norms in their new environment.

  4. Enhance job prospects: Strong English language skills are highly valued by many employers. Completing an EAP program can demonstrate to potential employers that a student has the language and academic skills needed to succeed in an English-speaking workplace.

  5. Access to academic resources: EAP programs often provide access to academic resources, such as libraries and databases, that students may not otherwise have access to. This can be especially beneficial for international students who are not familiar with the resources available in an English-speaking academic environment.
