English for Academic Purposes
Our full-time English for Academic Purposes programme is designed to prepare you for your future degree, whilst studying in the vibrant culture of The University of Manchester.
This course is ideal for you if you have a B1-B2 level of English (according to the CEFR) and you are aiming to continue to an undergraduate or postgraduate programme either at the University of Manchester or another university in an English speaking country.
We offer three terms of study from October to June, which leads nicely into our Pre-sessional courses in the summer.

Our EAP course runs from October to June wth 3 fixed start dates available. See our course dates and fees for further information
The minimum period of study is 9 or 10 weeks, depending upon which term you enter. The length of course you choose will be dependent on your current level of English and the level you wish to attain at the end of the course.
You will study for a maximum 20 hours per week: Monday to Friday. Classes are normally scheduled between 09.30am - 3.30pm. You will be expected to do some homework and self-study. A timetable will be provided to you on your first day. For further details see the course description.
