English for Academic Purposes

Culture, Language and Academic Preparation

The English for Academic Purposes program prepares learners with English language training, academic preparation and cultural orientation.

Students without the required English proficency can apply to English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and a college program on the same application form for one application fee. Students can be conditionally accepted to a college program when accepted into the EAP program. The program generally has three intakes: fall, winter and spring. The program terms are 14 weeks in length. Students are required to have a minimum IELTS score 5.0 or equivalent to be admitted. Some students may need to enroll in more than one term to achieve an IELTS score of 6.5, which is the admission requirement for most Assiniboine Community College academic programs.

We have a variety of available programs open to international students; check the available programs page.
