University Pathway Programmes

What does pathway mean in university

An undergraduate degree pathway program is aimed at preparing international students for higher education. There are many different ways you can access university level education. There are several benefits to considering pathway options that are specially designed to help students who want to study abroad.

Firstly, pathway options are suitable for students who might not meet the academic requirements for entry. A university pathway program will help you gain the academic skills you need to progress to a degree course and succeed. Pathway options can also be ideal if you want to study in a country like the USA. Here the pathway helps you access the range of undergraduate courses. The USA and Canada tend to have more flexible degree options where you can select numerous subjects to study as ‘majors’ and ‘minors’ and specialise as your interests change.

The pathway options available can be a much easier way of allowing this to happen. Pathway programmes often increase your chances of succeeding through university as they help you develop the core academic skills you need. On this basis, it can be a way of getting into a higher level university than your academic achievements meet the entrance requirements.


Undergraduate degree pathway routes

Universities offer a range of pathway options. The most popular undergraduate university pathway program is a foundation degree. If, however, your main barrier is the need to improve your English language skills. An English pre-sessional pathway is likely to be your best route. An English speaking education will help your longer term professional career goals.  Uni Direct works with pathway providers across a range of different countries including: The UK, USA, Canada, The Netherlands and China.
