English for Academic Purposes

Course summary

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) provides an opportunity to learn English language in context in preparation for university study. It is for students who want to develop the foundations of English for studying in tertiary programs.

The program involves three modules of study at intermediate level: Academic Skills 1, 2 and 3.

Students are provided with opportunities to acquire and practise language skills, such as writing explanation and argument essays, as well as learning academic language for spoken presentations. Lessons are designed around topical issues to encourage discussion and critical thinking. Furthermore, students are encouraged to develop independent learning skills in preparation for higher academic study.

Following successful completion of the Academic Skills 3 subject, students may enter the advanced level EAP program (IELTS Preparation or English for Tertiary Studies) to reach university entry level or enter UOW College's Foundation Studies or Diploma in Business.

Students who have not yet achieved an intermediate level of English language may commence their EAP course in an appropriate General English course.

Each module involves 20 hours of tuition per week.

The above CRICOS code (069912A) is a packaged course - English Language Programs (Beginner to Advanced). Information regarding the programs and relevant CRICOS codes included in this package course can be found at the UOW College English for Future Tertiary Studies website.
