What is a postgraduate pathway?

A postgraduate pathway course will help you meet the English language and academic requirements needed for admission to top-ranking universities in the UK and US.


Your route to university abroad

Our pathway courses offer a unique opportunity to study abroad while meeting the entry requirements for postgraduate study in the UK or USA.

One visa

One visa for the entire duration of your pathway and degree course at the university of your choice.

Full university status

University student status, with access to all facilities and services from day one.

Direct progression

After you successfully complete your pathway course, you will have the chance to seamlessly transition into your degree course. This will enable you to maintain your academic momentum and stay on track to achieve your goals.


Why you should do a pathway?

There might be a few reasons why might need to complete a pathway course before joing a degree course at a university:

Most universities have a minimum english language entry requirement (IELTS or equivalent) for admission

It might happen that the university you want to apply to requires grades above the ones you have previously achieve in your academic studies - at college or degree level.

Some countries education systems might be shorter or not recognised for direct entry to university level at the UK or USA.

Our Pathway courses are thoughtfully designed to empower international students to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. With our support, students can improve their English proficiency and study confidently alongside their peers across a range of subjects. We are committed to providing an inspiring and enriching academic experience that prepares our students for success.

If one or more of these reasons apply to you, a pathway course may be the route to achieve your academic goals.
