ESL programs

English for Academic Purposes

The EAP program is a full-time program designed for students who wish to improve their English in preparation for university study. The EAP Program helps students improve their English language skills while also introducing them to the academic environment of the university and teaching them the academic skills needed for success later in their university careers.

ESL Support Program

The ESL Support Program is a one-semester, full-time program for students who have a good understanding of the English language but still require some additional training in specific areas of academic English in order to make the transition into full-time academic study.

This program combines advanced ESL courses with academic courses that you take for credit toward your degree program at UNB Saint John.


The Pre-MBA Program is full-time, intensive, non-credit program offered by Saint John College and UNB Saint John's Masters of Business Administration and is designed to help international students bridge the gap between their undergraduate education, work experience and the entry requirements of UNB Saint John's MBA Program.
