The Virtual-EAP Program is designed for people who
By studying in the Acadia University Virtual-EAP (V-EAP) program, you can begin your studies from home. You do not need a study permit, you can save on the costs of travel and accommodations, and can complete the classes from the comfort of your own home! Another bonus is you get to interact with your classmates and teachers several hours every week as you learn English in an engaging and interactive environment. Be prepared to work hard, have fun and be challenged!
Each V-EAP term is 10 weeks long, with 25 hours of study per week. This includes the following:
The V-EAP Program is delivered 100% online.
Twelve (12) hours per week will be delivered in Virtual Live Classes with an instructor. All students are encouraged to attend the Virtual Live Classes. Classes will also be recorded and made available to enrolled students.
The remainder of the hours (13 or more hours) each week will consist of independent work as assigned by your instructors. This will include homework assignments, lectures, readings, research, and assessments.
