English for Academic Purposes (EAP) provides the fastest and most effective way towards reaching your required English language level for further study

Course Overview

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course is designed for students who want to pursue further study in vocational education and training, gain extra academic English in higher education studies or who want to apply to a university in the future. The benefit of Academic English is that it increases fluency in language and gives one confidence that is required and used in formal and informal academic contexts. It is designed to prepare you for the language used in vocational education and training, university lectures and academic books.

The course allows you to meet the English language requirements for your future pathway without retaking IELTS (*conditions apply).
