Yes. The EAP program is a Designated Learning Program and is eligible to receive foreign nationals on a study permit. EAP program applicants who have:
- been offered admission,
- accepted their Offer of Admission, and
- paid the $500.00 tuition deposit
Will receive a Letter of Acceptance. This is an official document which can be used to apply for a Canadian study permit.
However, students should be aware that applicants from certain countries may have difficulty gaining a study permit to study only EAP. If you have any questions about this, please contact our International Student Advisors.
If you are interested in continuing your studies at the undergraduate or graduate level at the University of Lethbridge, you should also apply for your preferred degree program. If you meet all other academic admission requirements, you will receive an Academic Requirements Met - English Proficiency Outstanding letter.
Use both your Letter of Acceptance for the EAP program and your Academic Requirements Met letter to your undergraduate/graduate program when submitting your study permit application.
Please note that it is the Government of Canada that reviews, approves, and issues study permits, not the University of Lethbridge.
