English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

Welcome to English for Academic Purposes (EAP) at Dalarna University! This one-semester preparatory course package has been developed to accommodate students who require skills in English that will facilitate their future university studies.

Please note! Applications for the August 2021 intake will open in December 2020.

Description of Course Package

You can find a link at the bottom of this page to a course package handbook that provides detailed information about the individual courses and the course package in general. You will receive a copy of this on your Introduction Day.

The course package comprises four courses:

These courses provide a basis for you to develop the four core language skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. You will learn how to integrate into a foreign university classroom that brings together students and teachers with a variety of cultural backgrounds. Interculturalism is, therefore, a key component of your study experience.

You will gain confidence through group work and individual work that will help you improve your English language skills in a variety of contexts, although primarily one that is academic. The friendly and personable environment that characterises the courses is key to the success of the student group, as demonstrated by former students.

Your successful completion of this course package will result in eligibility equivalent to English 6 (B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference) for further studies.
