English Foundation Program Student Resources

Resources for current English Foundation Program students.

EAP Courses

Each EAP term consists of 240 hours of programming designed to maximize your English language skills and foster academic success.  A typical week includes 12 hours of reading, writing, listening, and speaking classes, three hours of campus, community, and culture lessons, three hours of language labs and field trips, and two hours of tutorial support.

Each EAP course you take will count as an elective (three credits) towards your undergraduate degree.

Students entering EFP through EAP 103 can complete up to 24 credits in the first year. With summer courses in Years 2 and 3, students may be able to complete an undergraduate program of studies in four years.

Students entering EFP through EAP 104 can complete up to 30 credits in the first year. With 30 credits completed in the first year, students may be able to complete an undergraduate program of studies in four years.
