Abstract

This paper summarises a recent review of the pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) programme for preparing international students for foundation undergraduate and postgraduate study at London Metropolitan University. While on the EAP course, students have an opportunity to improve their level of English, develop appropriate study skills, get used to university life and the different teaching and learning style here in the UK, well before starting their degree. They also have time to prepare themselves more for their particular subject area by reading in advance.
