English for Post-Secondary Education

Welcome to the English for Post-Secondary Education (EPE) program at KGIC! EPE is an intensive academic preparation program for those who wish to enter a post-secondary institution (college or university) or study academic English. Our EPE program not only lets you bypass taking an official English test with many of our partners, it also prepares you to be successful once you start your college or university journey.
