English for Academic Purposes (EAP1 & 2) focuses instructions on skills required to perform in an English-speaking academic context across core subject areas generally encountered in a university/ college setting. It may also include a more narrow focus on the more specific linguistic demands of a particular area of study, for example, business subjects. 

Our EAP course may be intended to raise students' general English levels so that they can enter a university/ college. 

EAP teaches vocabulary, grammar and the four skills (Reading, Writing, Speaking - including pronunciation - and Listening) 


Students who successfully complete the English for Academic Purposes (EAP 1&2) program can pursue their further study experience in an Australian university or college.

Delivery methods include classroom-based sessions with coursebook-based core lessons followed by skills extension lessons. Assessments include weekly Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing formative and summative assessments.
