Top 15 Undergraduate Pathways in Academic English 2019

An undergraduate pathway is an intermediate study program designed for individuals wishing to obtain a degree, perhaps in another country, while also working on their second-language proficiency.  This type of program often allows students who need to improve their qualification while they increase their language skills and complete coursework towards a degree.

What is an undergraduate pathway in Academic English?  This is a program track that enables students to complete English studies coursework that increases English-language proficiency and can usually be applied towards an associate degree.  Students who complete a pathway course in Academic English may also proceed into more specialized studies or move on to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Academic English pathways include language classes, test preparation sessions, conversation labs, and other types of classes designed to improve both written and spoken English skills.  Those pursuing this type of pathway usually enhance their skills in communication, problem-solving, and time management.  Time management is crucial in both higher education and the workforce, and strong time-management skills can lead to career advancement.  Problem-solving and effective communication are two other skills that are highly valued by employers worldwide.

The price for this type of pathway program runs a wide range and is dependent upon how many semesters it takes, what materials are required, and where the school is located.  Local or online options may be more economical due to lower living expenses, but even these can vary.

In terms of career opportunities, graduates may have several options available to them, in part because of the diverse set of knowledge and skills they can gain through their programs.  Teaching is a popular choice, both at the pre-college and university levels.  Graduates may also go on to become managers, CEOs, or school administrators.  For those who select a more specific field of study, common choices include researcher, IT professional, medical technician, and others.

 

Because of their popularity, undergraduate pathways with a focus in general studies can usually be found in a student’s desired location.  If that’s not an option, online programs may be.  Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the contact form.
