What are Pathway programmes?

A pathway programme is a preparatory course for international students who plan to study at university level. The course is designed to boost existing qualifications and prepare you as a student for the desired university programme.

These courses are designed to help international students build the skills, knowledge, and qualifications that they will need to enter a bachelor's or master's degree program. 

Pathway programmes generally last one academic year, and they do not end with a degree.
