For international students who need help qualifying for entry into a master’s program in an English-speaking nation, graduate pathways can help. These programs, typically lasting one to two semesters, provide academic, language and cultural study to aid in the transition.

What is a graduate pathway in interdisciplinary studies? Interdisciplinary studies degrees differ from the traditional structure of higher education by instead allowing students to combine multiple disciplines as best suited for their interests and career needs. In a similar vein, the graduate pathway offers a broad selection of subjects for coursework to participants alongside their studies in English and postgraduate research. Concluding this program lets students transition into one of many potential master’s degrees in turn.

The specific skills acquired from a graduate pathway in interdisciplinary studies vary greatly based on the disciplines students choose to pursue. Generally, though, students can expect improved oral and written English communication, stronger proficiency in research and a smoother transition into a new culture, helpful for advancing in their academic and professional careers.

Graduate pathways vary in tuition costs between schools, though they’re generally based on the program length. Other factors, from room and board to tutoring, may add additional costs. Students can request information from the university to learn more.

By the nature of interdisciplinary studies degrees, students who complete this graduate pathway can potentially pursue a variety of careers depending on the disciplines they pursue. Some common career paths, though, involve jobs that benefit from a broad skill set. For instance, students may elect to supplement education training or business management courses with secondary subjects in the humanities or liberal arts, improving their career prospects as teachers, sales or human resources managers, etc.

Many institutions offer interdisciplinary studies programs as options for bachelor’s or master’s degrees. Such schools in English-speaking nations may also provide graduate pathways for these studies.
