Formal English – The pathway to Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees in English
The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program familiarises students with English-medium academic conventions and develops skills specific to an academic environment. The EAP program prepares students for the transition from studying in their native language and home country to studying in English at an Australian University or College. The EAP program teaches students to consider texts, discourses and issues in a critical light and supports them in becoming independent learners.
The EAP program is offered at three levels: Intermediate, Upper Intermediate and Advanced. Students undertake weekly assessments in relation to the course material they have studied.
Minimum entry requirement for EAP is IELTS Band 5.0 or PTE Academic Score 36.

Students that successfully complete 10 weeks will be levelled up. Students with outstanding assessment results might be recommended to level up after 5 weeks.
A teacher is in the library in supervised self-access periods to assist students with homework, resumes and questions from class.
Teachers provide students with weekly feedback on their progress in one-to-one meetings and advise on how to improve in areas of weakness and build on current strengths.
At Discover English I had a very good experience. Teachers and all administrative staff were always keen to help me.
I did a few weeks of General English before EAP, they were quite useful because it gave me more bases before doing such an advanced course like EAP. I finished at Discover English after 15 weeks of EAP. I believe this is the perfect course for those planning to do further studies. EAP prepares you for more professional English and gives you much confidence when doing academic writing.
I am not an exam person, so not having to take the IELTS test was a huge advantage for me. I studied hard when doing the EAP Course and now I have a direct entry to William Angliss to start my studies
