Facilitating International Student Success through English Language Instruction

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program offers English support and enhancement for international students, faculty, staff, post-docs, and spouses. The goal of the program is to empower international students to maximize their academic success through coursework, tutoring, and self-study resources. 


The CSLC offers official coursework in English for Academic Purposes for international graduate students in writing, presentations, and pronunciation. The pronunciation course is also open to undergraduate students


Bi-monthly workshops are offered on a range of topics such as advanced English grammar, reading and listening strategies, pronunciation techniques, and many more. Each session provides participants with opportunities for individual or small group feedback as well as follow-up sessions. All international students, faculty, post-docs, staff, and spouses are welcome to register and attend EAP workshops.

Tutoring & Consultation Services

Individual tutoring and consultation services are provided for free by EAP post-docs, visiting scholars, and trained professionals to international students who require assistance in particular areas of academic English: pronunciation, grammar, writing, presenting, teaching, conversation skills, and anything else a person might need help with. All non-native speakers of English who are part of the Notre Dame family are welcome to sign up for two 30-minute tutoring sessions per week, and no more than one per day.
