There are 7 assessments which must be completed during the course. Students need to pass all 7 assessments to be able to pathway to University. Assessments will take place between weeks 11 and 16. Each assessment can only be repeated once during the course. Students enrol for 24 hours per week. This will include scheduled class time of 20 hours Monday to Friday and 4 hours of workshops Monday to Thursday. All 24 hours of the selected course are compulsory. Students can enrol in EAP 1 or EAP 2 and join in week 1 and do a 16-week course, or in week 7, and do a 10-week course.

The 10-week courses are designed for students who already have, and can display a high level of English.

The 16-week courses are specifically designed for students who need additional support in English in order to be successful with Uni Bridge.

Students who do not qualify for EAP 1 or EAP 2 can take the Pre-EAP course that will help develop your English language skills to a level where you can confidently achieve EAP.
