English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is an intensive language and culture course designed for nonnative speakers of English who have been admitted to an undergraduate or graduate degree program at the University of Virginia or who are prospective UVa research associates or visiting scholars. Participants fine-tune the language skills required for success in US higher education through exercises in academic writing, academic reading and vocabulary development, listening comprehension and note-taking, classroom discussion strategies, and presentation skills. A pronunciation assessment is conducted with follow-up work assigned as needed. The English for Academic Purposes Program is one of eight intensive language programs in the Summer Language Institute, which is organized by the University of Virginia's Office of the Summer Session.
