Assessment takes place at the end of each 12 weeks study to provide you with an opportunity to see your English language development and where you have successfully met the outcomes of the course, move towards your goal whether that is the next English Language level, vocational or tertiary study or employment.

Australian Institute of English (AIOE) offers two levels of English for Academic Purposes (EAP).

EAP courses have a special focus in that they cover the generic skills required for successful study at Australian colleges and universities.

Both of our English for Academic Purposes( EAP) courses develop your English language skills by looking at the specific skills needed to meet the challenges of learning and being assessed, and ultimately being awarded a qualification in your chosen academic pathway.

English for Academic Purposes(EAP) Level 1 CRICOS Course Code: 091216D Duration: 8 weeks
English for Academic Purposes(EAP) Level 2 CRICOS Course Code: 091217G Duration: 8 weeks

 

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Level 1 builds on your current language skills to provide an understanding of the tertiary academic environment and the expectations of your tutors, teachers and lecturers.

This 8-week course is designed for those who wish to develop their academic English skills to a proficiency level that will allow them to successfully complete further vocational studies at our institute or at other vocational education institutions.

Entry to EAP 1 requires an Upper Intermediate English proficiency level. The course will extend vocabulary by listening to, speaking about and reading and writing on academic themes.

You will learn about how to give successful presentations, how to best listen and take notes to basic academic lectures, what types of information to look for when reading academic texts and articles, and how to write short academic essays and reports.

The course comprises 20 hours of classroom teaching and at least 5 hours additional study and computer research. A sample timetable is provided below

 

Time Monday-Friday
11:15 am – 1:15 pm Self-Study Elab
1:15 pm – 2:00 pm Lunch
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm Face to Face EAP class
4:00 pm – 4:15 pm Break
4:15 pm – 6:15 pm Face to Face EAP class

 

Students completing this course and exiting at this level are expected to have the language proficiency for most vocational education and training (VET) courses. It is worth noting that for international students a recognised English Language test may still be required by the enrolling institution.

 

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Level 2 is designed for students with an Advanced level of English proficiency intending to progress to further study in a tertiary environment or in vocational education qualifications that require a high level of language proficiency (often entry for these courses is around an equivalent of 6-6.5 IELTS)

If you have completed the EAP 1 course, this level 2 course builds on what you have already learnt about studying in an Australian tertiary context. However at this level the language contains more complex vocabulary in the lectures that you listen to and in the reading texts that you analyse for purpose and content. There is also an increased expectation as to the level of sophistication and quality of research in your written assignments.

The course comprises 20 hours of classroom teaching and at least 5 hours additional study and research. A sample timetable is provided below

 

Time Monday-Friday
11:15 am – 1:15 pm Self-Study Elab
1:15 pm – 2:00 pm Lunch
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm Face to Face EAP class
4:00 pm – 4:15 pm Break
4:15 pm – 6:15 pm Face to Face EAP class

 

Successful completion of this course indicates having reached a level where the language proficiency meets the language requirements for most tertiary courses. However some courses identified as highly linguistically demanding like Medicine require applicants to show a high level proficiency across all 4 macro skills of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. It is worth noting that for international students a recognised English Language test may still be required by the enrolling institution.
