Admission to the English Preparatory Year Program

The majority of newly admitted students who have just completed secondary school studies spend their first Academic Year at EMU in the English Preparatory Year Program. The main objective of this program is the development of proficiency in the use of English so that the student will be adequately prepared to undertake university-level studies conducted in the medium of English. A further objective is to help the student adjust to the EMU environment and develop the self-discipline and habits of study that will be essential for success in the university's programs of study.

Admission Directly to Freshman Level

Any student admitted to EMU who can demonstrate proficiency in English deemed adequate for university-level studies may be permitted to register directly for freshman classes without enrolling in the English Preparatory Year Program.
