English Preparation Program

English Preparation Program

English Preparation Program (EPP) is a 10-week English preparation program for students needing to improve their English before studying in SIBT's Diploma programs. EPP has been developed based on the language requirements, topics and tasks that students will encounter at SIBT, and will further develop the skills introduced in SSEPP. The assessment tasks include take-home written assignments, in-class exams and oral presentation tasks; these tasks reflect the typical assessment tasks that students will face at SIBT.
