Pathway and Foundation courses have been designed by universities to help students bridge the gap between their current academic skills and the requirements of the course they wish to study. These courses help prepare students who do not meet the university criteria for their undergraduate or postgraduate education.
The length of these courses vary, from 9 to 15 months, with intense focus on knowledge that international students require to help them in their university studies. Subjects can vary from English proficiency, exam skills, business theory to various other academic subjects. These courses are usually held at the start of the academic year and most will guarantee academic progression into either the first or second year of many good quality universities worldwide
