Prepare for success in academic study and the IELTS test. 

 

EAP develops academic language as well as study and research skills, such as attending lectures, note-taking, writing extended essays, reading academic texts, giving presentations and participating in group discussions.

I would certainly recommend studying at ICTE-UQ to other students. My experiences here have been extraordinarily good both academically and personally - Lyria, Burundi


    What will you learn?

    EAP will enable you to:

    • express facts, ideas and opinions in writing, using correct and appropriate vocabulary, grammatical structures and other features of academic writing
    • apply a range of reading skills in order to understand and respond to a variety of written texts
    • speak clearly and confidently
    • understand spoken English in conversations, discussions, lectures and to take notes
    • use a range of study skills including research skills, in order to gather, combine and critically examine information and ideas from different sources
    • apply the skills and language studied to the IELTS test.

    Students can complete an IELTS test towards the end of their EAP course to demonstrate that they meet the English language proficiency requirements for UQ degree program entry.

    What will you do?

    Course materials and assessment reflect the type of activities and learning environment that you may experience in a degree or academic study program.

    • Integrated Academic Skills: a variety of texts are used to develop reading and comprehension skills. Written work develops your ability to construct complex sentences, paragraphs and essays. Discussions improve spoken fluency, confidence and range of language.
    • IELTS Preparation: practise all areas of the IELTS test, including test-taking strategies and timed practise.

    What our students are doing

    Adam Alyahya

    From General English to English for Academic Purposes to UQ degree program

    My experience at ICTE-UQ is a remarkable one. The unique teaching style and the supportive approach of teachers towards me, made my learning of English seamless. The learning facilities along with the range of inclusive activities and student services at ICTE-UQ contributed to my unforgettable learning experience.

    Today I hold an executive role in two students’ societies as well as proudly being one of Brisbane’s International Student’s Ambassadors, a program that is part of the Lord Mayor’s initiative to introduce Brisbane to the world as a modern world city and a student destination. I am also completing my degree of International Tourism Management here, at UQ.
