For international students who want to improve their academic English skills before starting a degree or diploma.
Students who are admitted into one of ASM’s degree program may begin their studies in one of the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. These courses are intended for students who would like to enhance their English skills or require additional academic English development prior to taking Academic Writing (ENGL 101). The EAP courses are a part of a student’s degree program.
These courses help student success through enhancing their academic English skills across the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In addition to improving their English language proficiency, students acquire essential academic skills in a business context including critical and creative thinking, problem-solving, academic research, note-taking, setting and achieving goals, time management, teamwork, effective presentations, computer basics, APA citation, and library orientation and information literacy.
There are two courses: EAPP090 and EAPP100. Students will be assigned to the appropriate level based on their English language proficiency level at the time of admission. Students with an IELTS score equivalent to 5.5 will be enrolled in EAPP090. Those with an IELTS score equivalent to 6.0 will enroll in EAPP100. Each course has a duration of 12 weeks or one term of study, and both courses are offered every term. Each EAP course is considered a full-time course load.
Students receive 3 academic credits for EAPP100, which apply towards their degree. Students may also register for one or two other selected academic courses while taking the EAP courses.
This course is designed for students who need to upgrade their mathematical skills in preparation for quantitative courses in Business, Management and other research courses at ASM.

Topics of exponents and logarithms are introduced, including solving simple exponential equations and logarithmic equations. A chapter of Statistics is also included for the preliminary study in Business Statistics: drawing and interpreting circle graphs, bar graphs and line graphs, and calculating the central measures of sets of data. Lastly, students will learn how to use technological tools (Excel and calculators) to assist them in working on manipulating formulas and displaying statistical graphs.
