If you’ve been admitted to Capilano University you can take the EAP Placement Test to determine which level of EAP courses is right for you.

CapU’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) department offers the EAP Placement Test to domestic and international students each semester.

The test is written at Capilano University. It lasts about five hours. Your score on the test will be used to choose the level of EAP courses to take.

You must pay a $50 fee before you take the test.

Pay at the Cashier’s office in room BR214 on the second floor of the Birch Building.

The next EAP placement test session will be held in April 2019. This test session is for those wishing to commence their EAP studies in May 2019 (Summer term).

Please be reminded you are invited to register to take the EAP Placement Test only if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • you have been accepted to Capilano University, and
  • you have a student number, but
  • you do not have recent English proficiency test results from IELTS, TOEFL, ELA, CAEL or Pearson (see external English language proficiency test scores).

If you have met the three criteria above and would like to take the EAP Placement test, please continue to monitor this page for future EAP Placement Test session dates.
