About the Course

As an overseas student who wishes to study and work abroad in an English-speaking country, you will be required to brush up your English language proficiency, especially if you are not very fluent in the language. EAP, or the English for Academic Purposes course is delivered to overseas students who wish to undertake study or work in English medium higher education. Learning to read, write and speak with ease in a new language doesn’t come easily, but this program from IHM is a great starting point.

Offered as part of the ELICOS program, the English levels offered within the EAP program include:

  • English for Academic Purposes 1 (EAP1) – Over 12 weeks
  • English for Academic Purposes 2 (EAP2) – Over 12 weeks

The academic skills learnt in the program are relevant and applicable to many areas of study such as healthcare, business, the arts and humanities, I.T. and marketing, among others. As you progress through these levels, you will get prepared for higher and more challenging areas of study.

This course will help to

  • Open pathways to further study in English
  • Learn and master formal academic writing skills in English
  • Participate in university-like group projects
  • Learn to properly reference texts in academic writing and avoid plagiarism
  • Teach important study and time-management skills essential for success in further study
