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.
During the first day of each session, students are tested and placed into the levels appropriate to their needs. 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.
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.
