English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) prepares students for study at Southern Cross University. EAP builds on existing English language abilities in reading, writing, speaking and listening. It then develops student’s academic and digital literacy practices, including researching, referencing, note taking, using the Southern Cross University Learning Management System and giving presentations.

Which level should I choose?

The level and duration of EAP will depend on a student’s English language at application.

Successful completion of EAP provides direct entry to a range of Southern Cross University degrees.

EAP1    Entry to courses with Academic IELTS 5.5 and 6.0 (CEFR B2)

EAP2    Entry to courses with Academic IELTS 6.5 (CEFR B2+)

EAP3    Entry to courses with Academic IELTS 7.0  (CEFR C1)

Students studying EAP must be on a student visa and class attendance is closely monitored as per Attendance Policy for ELICOS Programs.

When can I start?

Our intensive EAP course runs three times a year, just before university classes begin. Individual students’ EAP pathway lengths vary, depending on the number of weeks they require to enter their university course.
