The EAP course you take will depend upon your English language skills at the time of entry. You will need to provide a valid IELTS or TOEFL test score prior to registering for EAP, to ensure that you enter the appropriate program. Without a valid test score, you will automatically be placed in EAP - 101.
The course content for each EAP program is designed to take you from your current level to the corresponding Target IELTS score, in the designated time period, as outlined below.
|Program||Duration in Weeks||Hours per week||Pre-requisite||Target

|EAP - 101||12||15||Below IELTS 4 or TOEFL 400||5.0||3|
|EAP - 201||12||10||IELTS 4.0 or TOEFL 400-449||5.0||6|
|EAP - 301||6||12||IELTS 4.5 or TOEFL 450-499||5.0||9|
Our EAP classes are delivered in a friendly, multicultural environment, are student centered, and university-program tailored. Courses are run in conjunction with the University Academic Calendar; please contact the EAP Coordinator for details.
Participants work collaboratively with their instructors and peers to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in English through a number of up-to-date teaching methodologies. Participants also study academic skills such as note-taking, presentation delivery, and critical thinking. EAP students are encouraged to become involved in University life and to feel part of the learning community.
Unique opportunities for EAP students include:
- A pen pal system with instructors and existing students at Canadian University Dubai to practice fluency in writing.
- Access to the EAP program website and online forum, where additional language practice and class updates are available (i.e. Moodle).
- An extensive reading program for students who enjoy English literature.
- Use of state-of-art resources and technology.
