English for Academic Purposes













Facilitating International Graduate Student Success through English Language Instruction

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program offers English support and enhancement for international students. The goal of the program is to empower international students to maximize their academic success through coursework, tutoring and self-study resources. Although the program is intended primarily for graduate students, undergraduate students are welcome to attend workshops and take advantage of tutoring services.


The CSLC offers official coursework in English for Academic Purposes for international graduate students.


Weekly workshops on a range of topics, including: advanced English grammar, reading and listening strategies, pronunciation techniques, etc. Each session provides participants with opportunities for individual or small group feedback as well as follow-up sessions.
