The University English Pathway program prepares students for study at a university or college in the United States and offers qualified students a pathway option to take English language courses along with university courses. This program is also useful for professionals or travelers who need to improve their English language skills for communication purposes.
This program acts as a pathway to Undergraduate Conditional Admission for students wanting to study for a bachelor's degree and Graduate Conditional Admission for students wanting to study for a master's degree. Students have the opportunity to be recommended for university admission without a TOEFL or IELTS score if they successfully complete this program.
