Course Description:

Our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program is offered at two levels: EAP (Upper-Intermediate) and EAP (Advanced), meticulously designed as a pre-university preparation program. It caters to the needs of international students who aspire to pursue undergraduate or postgraduate studies.

The focus of each course is on Academic English skills essential for academic success. We understand that transitioning to university life can bring cultural differences, so our program also equips students to navigate both social and academic challenges on campus. From comprehending lecturers' expectations to mastering academic texts, essay writing, and report composition, our courses cover it all. Additionally, we prepare students for effective seminar presentations, collaborative group work, and the development of autonomous learning skills.

The characteristic of our EAP program is the emphasis on experiential learning through well-designed enquiry-based tasks. We believe in fostering active language acquisition, empowering students to thrive in real-world academic settings. To further enhance the learning experience, we leverage Learning Management Systems (LMS) and other online tools, facilitating productive collaboration among students both inside and outside the classroom.
