English Language Programs

English Academic Preparation (EAP)

Is a multi-level, year-round intensive language program for students who are required to upgrade their English language skills. We have full-time and part-time programs that focus on academic writing, critical reading, listening comprehension, and oral communication skills. Our goal is to help students begin a successful degree program as soon as possible. Students in the part-time EAP program may also take other university courses that count towards an undergraduate degree.

The EAP Bridging Program

The Bridging program allows higher scoring students to take a combination of EAP courses (for example, academic writing) and academic courses in order to meet the UPEI language requirements.
