A pathway to a degree

Our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course can help prepare you for undergraduate or postgraduate study. And while EAP is a general course catering to all students, our Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) has been designed as a pathway for students wanting to study an undergraduate health science degree. After successfully completing these courses, you will meet the English entry requirements for your desired degree. Plus, you will already know your way around campus and be familiar with our online learning tools.
