What are Pathway Programs?

To put in the simplest words, Pathway programs are known as preparatory courses that are specially curated to help the international students build a hold over knowledge skills as well as qualifications that are required to pursue a UG or PG program. Usually, the duration of these courses is around one year. 

Also called foundation courses, these help students understand the curriculum prior to the commencement of designated programs by solidifying their concepts in English, general awareness and other related fields. Even after proving English language proficiency through entrance exams, sometimes students face difficulties in completing a program overseas. Thus, many international universities and colleges offer this program exclusively for international students. 

Why Choose Pathway Programs? 

Owing to the complexities and intricacies of the curriculum of overseas courses, nowadays pursuing a pathway program has become a necessity. Listed below are a few reasons that will help you understand why it is important to pursue a foundational program- 

  • Strengthening the necessary language skills that help one understand each and every bit of the course 
  • Ample time to decide the particular field of study 
  • Enhances your chances of securing a seat in the program of their choice
  • Pathway programs help one mould according to the society leading to a lesser cultural shock
  • By taking this course, you are exempted from appearing in English language proficiency tests like IELTSTOEFL, etc

Types of Pathway Programs 

Undergraduate Level

The undergraduate pathway programs assist students in developing a better knowledge about the uses of the English language along with a variety of other skills required. During the course, students can earn credits which will be beneficial whilst seeking admission into full-time bachelors courses. 

Graduate Level

Also known as pre-masters, gravity programs lay the right foundation that is required to pursue a master’s degree abroad. As the course work of masters programs abroad is pretty intense as compared to UG courses, by pursuing pre-masters candidates can get into the right groove required to ace the PG course. 

Language Pathway Programs

Qualifying in English language proficiency courses is a necessary requirement when it comes to pursuing a course abroad. But, by pursuing a bridge course in English, candidates can prove their efficiency in English. Such programs are considered equivalent when it comes to filing an application for UG or PG courses. 

Online Pathway Programs

Candidates who want to enhance their knowledge but are restricted due to an ongoing course for a job responsibility can pursue an online pathway program. Online courses are ideal for those who want to acquire the right skill set without being present at the campus.
