The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course is designed to prepare international students, from a range of backgrounds and nationalities, to undertake tertiary study in Australia.
Students enrolled for this course will have as their specific study objective the completion of a tertiary level course in an Australian tertiary institution.
The focus of this EAP course is developing the skills areas in English, which the student will require to study alongside native speakers in tertiary courses. However, students entering the EAP course at the lower level will not necessarily have access to the language base, which makes the use of these skills a possibility. For this reason the balance of the EAP course will move systematically from a language focus to a skills focus as the student progresses through the levels from EAP Level 1 to EAP Level 2.
