English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is designed to improve the knowledge and usage of academic English thus facilitating the entry onto undergraduate courses. 

The course consists of 30 lessons per week -  20 lessons of Standard General English and 10 lessons of EAP. 
The course offers a varied range of modules that provide the opportunity for all students to increase the range, depth and sophistication of their linguistic knowledge. It focuses on improving academic skills by:

• Developing the specific skills required for academic reading and writing through a wide range of topics relevant to higher education.
• Developing communication skills though discussions, presentations and listening for general understanding and specific points to remember.
• Exploring strategies to help students with new vocabulary, and to record, vary, and build their vocabulary.
• Offering guidance in undertaking research, and in acknowledging sources.
• Providing plenty of guided practice as well as freer practice to encourage learner independence.
• Focusing on grammar and parts of speech to brush up and enhance knowledge of English grammar.

Our EAP course also provides the opportunity to study for the IELTS examination, required for acceptance into most universities.
