After your EAP application is accepted, the English for Academic Purposes Department needs to know which level is appropriate for you. For this reason, we ask students to take the EAP Placement Test before beginning their studies in the EAP program. The results of this test will be used to place you into the best EAP level for you.
Normally, you must make an appointment to take the EAP Placement Test. The placement test is given at Capilano University in North Vancouver. There are several test dates you can choose from before an academic term begins.
