As an essential part of the curriculum, it becomes important to introduce English courses to students who aspire to take up International bachelor’s degrees in and outside their home town. Having an international bachelor’s degree will open many doors to new opportunities, which would not have reached the student without this qualification.
English for Academic Purpose (EAP) course prepares students with required speaking, listening, reading and writing skills for a university environment.
This course mainly focuses on language and academic study skills. Language skills include listening comprehension, fluency development, oral intelligibility, reading, grammar, writing, and vocabulary development.
This kind of exposure to the language greatly helps advanced level students who are interested in undergraduate or graduate study in the United States or other countries. They overcome the language barrier and build their knowledge and confidence to pursue their international degree course.
