English for Academic Purposes

Students who do not meet the minimum English language requirements for direct entry to UNF programs can still improve their English skills to qualify for admission to a degree program. UNF has partnered with The Language Gallery (TLG) to offer a program designed to help students who have a minimum IELTS 6.0 overall, with a writing band of at least 5.5, develop the key skills required for studying in English at an undergraduate or graduate level.

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) powered by TLG is an online program that supports students in upgrading their English language skills through a 12-week term.

Students will be enrolled into a unique online section and offering of Level 6 EAP at TLG alongside other UNF EAP students, creating an immersive cohort of learning and collaboration.

Through customized curriculum developed by experienced instructors, the program teaches students how to be successful in academic writing, referencing, researching, note-taking, listening, summarizing, synthesizing texts, critical thinking, and speaking.

The program will be delivered online Monday through Friday for the full 12-week term, including three hours of synchronous learning per day, as well as one hour asynchronous. Students will receive progress updates on Weeks 4 and 8, and their final grades upon completion of Week 12.

Upon successful completion of the program with a minimum grade of 80%, students will be transitioned into their academic program of choice at UNF and approved to begin their on-campus studies.
