Message to EAP Applicants:

We want to let you know the EAP Program is proceeding without interruption because of the COVID-19 situation. However, the EAP Program will now be delivered as online courses starting April.

The online EAP course will reflect the same material you would study in person and will meet the same high standards of teaching and learning as the face-to-face EAP courses. Successful completion of the EAP Program in this online format will continue to meet the English language requirements for admission into your degree program at Dalhousie University.

There are currently three (3) start dates you can choose from to join the EAP Program Online:

  1. EAP April session: April 13 - July 03, 2020 (all EAP Levels)
  2. EAP June session: June 08 - August 28, 2020 (EAP Level 2 only)
  3. EAP July session: July 13 - September 04, 2020 (al EAP Levels)

For EAP Courses beginning in September 2020 or later, please apply as usual, and we will contact you about whether this course will be offered online or face-to-face in Halifax.

If you have any questions, please contact us at
