Course Description:

The English for Academic Purposes Program (EAP) is structured at two levels: EAP (Upper-Intermediate) and EAP (Advanced). The programs are intended for international students wishing to pursue studies at either undergraduate or post graduate level. The focus of each course is on the language skills students will need to undertake academic studies. Both courses will also prepare students for the cultural differences they may encounter both socially and academically on campus. Such areas would include expectations of lecturers, developing autonomous learning skills, working in groups, adjusting to study and social customs. Both EAP courses seek to create an environment whereby the student becomes self-determined and is able to learn using strategies most suitable to him/her. Using this learner-centered method the student becomes confident in approaching the demands and stresses associated with academic life.

Briefly, the aims of the EAP course are:

  • To enable students to become familiar with, and to practice applying, English medium academic conventions;
  • To teach students to critically consider texts, discourses and issues by analysing the purposes behind the texts;
  • To provide Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking skills particularly suitable to academic environments;
  • To enhance students’ abilities to be independent learners and to utilize the World Wide Web for academic research;
  • To facilitate a process for students so that they recognize and appreciate cultural viewpoints that may be different than their own;
  • To make a smooth as possible transition from studying in the students’ own countries and languages to studying in English.
