The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) class is designed for students who need to develop their oral and written communication skills for further study in an English-speaking environment. This course prepares students for success in vocational and tertiary level academic environments where English is the language of instruction, such as TAFE colleges (Technical and Further Education) or university. Successful completion of EAP is one pathway for international students into LAB Melbourne's partner higher education provider LCI Melbourne in Collingwood, Melbourne.
