English for Academic Purposes at UCA's School of Professional and Continuing Education

The University of Central Asia's School of Professional and Continuing Education is now offering the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) programme in Naryn, Khorog and at its Learning Centres in Bishkek and Dushanbe. The EAP programme adds to SPCE's current English programme offerings in Conversational English and English for Business.

Developed specially by the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute, University of Ottawa for SPCE, this comprehensive and intensive programme prepares students for admission to university. The programme consists of two levels: EAP level 1 and EAP level 2. Designed to facilitate the learning of non-native English speakers, the programme aims to equip participants with critical thinking and reading skills, expanding their ability to participate in university-level classroom discussions, comprehend and analyze academic literature, and produce text according to standard academic conventions. Classes are held three or five times weekly, for both levels, and encompass a total of 150 hours of academic reading, speaking/listening and writing skills.

The EAP programme is conducted by SPCE instructors who have been trained by the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute, University of Ottawa (Canada).

The EAP is in progress in Bishkek, Dushanbe, Khorog and Naryn. Interested learners can contact SPCE's centres to inquire on next available start dates.
