(EAP) English for Academic Purposes


English for Academic Purposes Program

Welcome! Preparation for successful academic study is our goal.  Some international students need to boost their English before entering regular classes. Because of this, the Modern Language Institute has been offering English for Academic Purposes (EAP formerly ELI) to students since 1995. Providence maintains a strong reputation for preparing non-native English speakers for academic study.

With its strong team of English teachers, the EAP program offers small class sizes, personalized attention, a multicultural classroom, and the benefits of a safe and caring Christian community.

Providence University College and Theological Seminary is a Christian institution in the evangelical tradition. It's located in Canada, one of the best places in the world to live (according to a UN study). Providence is a safe, Christian community in a multi-cultural setting. Winnipeg, the capital city of Manitoba, is a multi-cultural city offering a host of cultural opportunities.
