Hanson Language School offers two streams of the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program.

Full-Time EAP Part-Time EAP
12 weeks 20 weeks
25 hours per week 15 hours per week

One option is the General EAP, and the other is the College EAP.  Both streams are preparatory programs designed to develop core English language skills within a post-secondary context, enabling students to approach post-secondary studies with the required foundational English language competencies.

The English for Academic Purposes Program (EAP) consists of language learning in the context of academic subjects such as sociology, economics, psychology, literature, and law. They are specifically designed to develop your academic study and participation skills, while improving your English to a level that will ensure your success in further post-secondary studies.
