English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
EAP helps students improve their English language reading, writing, speaking, listening, and grammar skills so that they meet the entry requirements for their chosen program. Depending on students’ English language proficiency upon entry, they will be required to complete one, two or three semesters of EAP. After successful completion of this program, students will progress with confidence to International Year 1, Transfer Preparation Program (TPP) or Pre-Master's Program (PMP). Learn more
