Welcome to the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course!

This is an e-learning course that aims to support international Master students in English-taught programs at Uni Kassel.

Specifically, the EAP course addresses the needs of current and future Master students with diverse and/or international academic backgrounds by providing an overview of issues related to academic writing and academic integrity.  

Toward this purpose, the course is organized into 4 thematic areas:

  1. Reading and Comprehension
  2. Grammar
  3. Academic Standards
  4. Style

The course is designed to be completely self-guided.  Each thematic areas combines introductory material to refresh and/or reinforce previous knowledge with a series of exercises to illustrate the main points, provide examples, and check for understanding.     

The course also includes a video lecture with a corresponding quiz (as an introduction to university seminars in English) and a 12-question assessment to check for understanding of the concepts presented in the 4 thematic areas. 

Enjoy the course!
