How does this course work?

Choosing to study abroad is a rewarding experience that can help you succeed both academically and personally. At Oxford International, we design our courses to prepare you both for your future studies and beyond.

When choosing a pathway course, you need to know what is right for you based on your academic and personal development goals. Our pathway courses will prepare you with subject-specific knowledge and academic English language skills. Alongside this, our dedicated and friendly college teams will ensure that you have the help you need to adjust to life as an international student abroad.

During your pathway course, you will take a combination of core and subject modules specific to your chosen degree. It’s a great way to get familiar with your subject area while learning core university study skills such as academic writing and referencing. There is still a lot of studying involved, but all our courses are designed to prepare you in the best possible way.

With experienced tutors and small class sizes, you will have the space to develop your confidence while strengthening your university-level study skills. Once you’ve completed, you will continue onto the next stage of your chosen degree course at university.

Throughout your time with us, we will support you to realise your true potential.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

Gozel Turkmenistan, University of Greenwich International College (UGIC)

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
