English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is an intensive course for learners planning to enrol in a university, either at an undergraduate or postgraduate level or a Foundation Studies Program, Technical (such as TAFE) or Vocational College.

At present we have three EAP levels:
EAPC: This level gives an introduction into academic English and is slightly more challenging than Intermediate level. Many learners join this class if they aspire to go to University, TAFE or APC Vocational College.

EAPB: For learners who wish to enter TAFE, this course is more demanding than EAPC and learners need to be at least at an Upper Intermediate level. Learners must complete 10 weeks in this course and get a B- grade or higher in the major assessments in order to get direct entry into TAFE.
EAPA: For University-bound learners, this course is very demanding and quite intensive. Learners must complete 10 weeks in this course and must get a B+ grade in all 5 assessments in order to enter any University with which we have an articulation agreement.

Learners who are unable to provide evidence of English proficiency are required to complete a Pre-Arrival English Test (PAT) to determine their level of proficiency. The PAT is indicative only. Applicants will be provisionally accepted into the course prior to arriving at the College. Applicants may be required to study in the General English program based on their final English proficiency assessment on arrival. The PAT is available online now at www.apc.edu.au/pat/ and test-takers will be given instant feedback on their grammar section. Results for the writing section are available within 48 hours.

Course Availability:
- Morning EAP: Monday – Thursday 9:00 am - 2:45 pm
- Option Classes: Friday 9:00am – 1:15pm
- Self Access: Monday – Thursday 2:45 pm - 4:15 pm
