    English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is offered at two levels and is designed
    to prepare students for success in academic study and in the IELTS test.
    EAP develops academic language as well as study and research skills.

    environment students will experience in a degree or academic study program,
    such as attending lectures, note-taking, writing extended essays, reading
    academic texts, giving presentations and participating in group discussions.
    Students can complete an IELTS test at the end of their EAP course to
    demonstrate that they meet the English language proficiency requirements for
    UQ degree program entry.                                                                                                       ICTE-UQ 200-seat Auditorium

     *Teaching English to speakers of other languages
     English for Specific Purposes: TESOL (ESP:TESOL) is offered at two levels and
     is designed for students who are considering becoming a teacher of English as
     a second language (ESL) or who are already ESL teachers in their own country.
     ESP:TESOL focuses on developing English language skills through topics of
     general interest and TESOL-related content.
     ESP:TESOL also prepares students for selected modules of the Cambridge
     ESOL Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT). The TKT is not a teaching qualification
     but an assessment tool that aims to:
      - increase the confidence of students considering becoming English language
        teachers as well as those already working in the TESOL field
      - enhance future job and training prospects.
                                                                                                                     Experienced and supportive teaching staff
