What is EAP?
This program provides students with the English language proficiency needed to continue their academic education at the diploma, degree and post-graduate levels. It is also ideal for those who need excellent communication skills for specific career goals.
Our program covers all the skills needed for academic success:
- Academic Writing and Grammar
- Reading and Vocabulary Development
- Speaking and Pronunciation
- Listening and Note-taking
- Presentation Skills
- Library & Internet Research Skills
At Humber, we make learning English both practical and interesting. As well as teaching you the rules of grammar, we show you how and why you will use them. Then we practice - in class, in the computer labs, with native speakers and at social events. This makes learning dynamic and enjoyable.
The EAP program is offered at eight levels of study from high beginner to advanced. The core curriculum of 18 hours per week is complemented by an additional 4 hours in a computerized language-learning lab for a total of 22 hours of classroom instruction per week. Level 8 of the program includes a general education course which is recognized as a credit course towards many of Humber’s diploma programs.
Conditional Admission to Humber Programs through EAP
Completion of EAP Level 8 meets the language proficiency requirements for admission to most Humber programs. For students completing Level 8 with no failed courses and with the appropriate grades (see below), no further IELTS or TOEFL testing is required.
Level 8 completion with 60% → Humber diploma programs
Level 8 completion with 75% → Humber degree programs
Level 8 completion with 80% → Humber postgraduate programs
International students enrolled in EAP may receive conditional offers of admission to most Humber programs.*
* Meeting the minimum language proficiency requirement does not guarantee admission to the program.
