There are three (3) regular sessions of EAP in early January, late April and early September. The sessions are thirteen (13) weeks in length and are available in four (4) levels, from Introductory to University Entrance. Upon successful completion of the University Entrance level, students can receive regular admission with no further language proficiency entrance requirements (assuming all other entrance requirements are met).
Students who wish to improve their English skills for personal or professional purposes may enroll in one or more sessions. The consists of twenty-five (25) hours per week of intensive instruction by qualified, experienced teaching staff with an excellent instructor/student ratio.
There are three (3) EAP sessions offered each year – Winter, Spring/Summer, and Fall. Additional short courses can be designed for groups with special needs. For more information, please contact the Program Coordinator.
EAP is offered at all levels. However, students at lower English proficiency will begin at the Introductory level and should expect to complete a minimum of 12 months of EAP before entering regular Brandon University courses.
Classes will continue in September at the EAP program. Fall Term will see instruction that will be mostly delivered online, as we continue to take precautions to ensure the health and safety of our whole community. We are working on finalizing the details at the moment. More information will be shared with students soon.
The EAP program is not a qualifying educational program for issuance of a Tuition and Enrolment Certificate (T2202a), that is used for income tax purposes.
Generally, in Canada, to be considered at the post‑secondary school level, a course should provide credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate and would normally require the completion of secondary school as a prerequisite for taking the course. Courses taken for purposes of educational upgrading to allow entry into a university or college program would not normally qualify as a qualified educational program because these courses are not considered to be at a post-secondary school level.
