Graduate Pathway

Find the Best Graduate Pathways

To qualify for acceptance into a graduate programs, many students initially complete course work that prepares them for advanced education. Preparatory classes in pathway programs may last from a few weeks through an entire calendar year depending on the curriculum.

What is a graduate pathway program? This educational option is designed to help individuals prepare for university degree programs. Students who complete a pathway program are often working on improving their language skills as they prepare for further education. In many cases, they are applying to study internationally. The university may not offer classes in the student’s first language, so additional classwork in the second language can help them meet university entrance requirements. Completing pathway courses can help the student get the most out of his or her graduate university education.

By taking graduate pathway program classes, students frequently strengthen their ability to communicate seamlessly in a second language. Students often use improved writing skills both academically and professionally. Improving the ability to learn and understand new languages quickly has the potential to unlock worldwide travel and career opportunities.

The cost to attend a pathway program varies depending upon its duration and the academic institutions affiliated with the program. Fees can also vary depending on whether classes are offered in the student’s home country and if class credits are transferable to other universities.

Students who complete a graduate pathway program often do so to qualify for entrance into a 2-year or 4-year university. Those with an interest in helping other students frequently find jobs as career navigators or academic advisors. Others may find rewarding careers as language instructors or learning facilitators. Those with an affinity for travel sometimes choose careers as international hosts for global corporations, travel companies or cruise lines.

Pathway programs at universities around the world may be offered online or in conjunction with other university departments. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
