MIT English for Academic Purpose (EAP1-2)

Our EAP program will help you build the academic English skills needed to study in Australia – such as writing a research report, case study, or giving an oral presentation.

We will help you lay the foundation in the language competencies relevant to the Australian academic environment.

The program is established around the four key macro skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

The course will help you:

  • Gain familiarity with the application of English medium relevant to the Australian academic environment.
  • Critically analyse texts, discourses, and contemporary issues by considering the context and purpose(s) behind them.
  • Develop reading, writing, listening, speaking, and critical-thinking skills relevant to the higher-education context.

The EAP timetable starts early and finishes early, giving you time to develop the skills you need outside the classroom. We have a rolling intake, and you can start on any Monday.

The EAP program is your pathway to MIT’s undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
