Graduate Pathway Programs Our Graduate Pathway programs are the most supported route to a graduate program in an American university. Joining this program will assure you admission into your graduate program upon successful completion of the progression requirements. These programs will give you the academic foundation, essential language skills and GMAT/GRE test preparation needed to successfully move on to a master's or doctoral degree.
TOEFL, GMAT and GRE test preparation are built into the Graduate Pathway program curriculum. You will receive up to 40 hours of test prep throughout the duration of the program. Our test preparation courses are taught by experienced instructors who focus on skills-based language development and test-taking skills which include the use of practice tests and individual feedback on performance. We also provide self-study materials, available in our learning center.
Our International Year One Undergraduate Pathway programs combine intensive English language study, academic skills development and course work. They are carefully designed programs to help you through the first year of your undergraduate degree. Joining our Pathway program will not extend the overall length of an undergraduate degree program. In fact, it will guarantee places in some required courses, which may shorten the length of your degree program.
Living on campus will be one of the best experiences during your time in the US. Choose from sharing a bedroom and bathroom to living in a private room and bathroom
