English for Academic Purposes (EAP)


The English Academic Purposes (EAP) program at Toronto International College (TIC) is designed to give a strong English language foundation to our students in order to prepare them for their future University Preparation courses. It allows the students to achieve a whole new level of English proficiency to enable them to succeed in their future university careers. This rigorous program is set up in such a way that students get to practice their English skills not only in the daily classroom environment but also in authentic situations through field trips and other supervised outings.
Our 5 weeks long modules require students to study 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. The components of each module include Listening and Speaking, Grammar Practice (particularly at lower levels), Academic Reading, Academic Writing (Essay Writing at Advanced level) and Research Methods courses at various levels starting from Low Intermediate Level (Level 2) and ending with Advanced Level (Level 5). Also included into the EAP program are IELTS preparation courses.

Good afternoon Toronto International College extended family,
Schools in Ontario will remain closed until at least early May as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Premier Doug Ford and Education Minister Stephen Lecce made the announcement at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
“Effective immediately, we have extended the order to close publicly funded schools until at least May 1st for teachers and May 4th for students. We’ve also extended the closure of private schools and child-care centres for another two weeks,” Ford said.
The closures for private schools and daycares were extended by only two weeks as that order comes under the provincial state of emergency declaration, which is effective in two-week increments. Toronto International College will follow suit with the public system while continuing to offer normal scheduling of live classes online.
Thank you for following enforced, social distancing and public health intervention measures to return to our normal routines as soon as possible. Take care of each other and have a healthy, productive week!
