Summer Visiting International Students

Summer English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses are a good option for international visiting students interested in developing academic writing, research and communication skills. Students with TOEFL scores between 550 and 600 (or other equivalents) are encouraged to take at least one EAP course.

If you are a visiting international student looking to take summer EAP courses, apply first for the International Summer program, then register for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) through the General Study program
