English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

The aim of this course is to help students become confident in using the conventions of academic English as required for tertiary study and to develop the skills needed for independent learning. From 22 June, EAP is also available online. Each week you will have 15 hours of tuition and all classes will be delivered ‘live’ online by your teachers, so you will need to have a reliable, fast Internet connection and a good computer with a webcam and microphone.
