English for Academic Purposes (EAP)


The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program is a full-time 16 week integrated skills program for high intermediate students. Reading, writing, speaking and listening skills are the focus of this program. The EAP is also open to Intensive English Program (IEP) students who wish to pursue an academic program and are at the 500 level or higher in all skills.

Students will be able to take part in the Friday workshops and can join in the socio-cultural activities organized by the Cultural Assistants (CAs) throughout the semester.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded a UBC Certificate in English Language. The level 600 certificate meets UBCÂ’s English Language Admission Standards (ELAS).
