A pathway course is a course that is taken before applying to university. These are often taken by international students who would like to improve their grades and English proficiency before enrolling at university in an English speaking country.
If you successfully complete a pathway course at British Study Centres, you'll also be guaranteed a place at one of our partner universities.
British Study Centres London is recognised for its outstanding academic and social facilities and offers students a stimulating learning environment. All of the staff are fully qualified and are experts in their field. If you can't make it to our London centre, we also offer Blended Pathway programmes which begin with half a year of online study. Students hoping to apply for postgraduate study can also prepare for a UK Master's online with our online Pre-Master's programmes.
The Northern Consortium of UK Universities (NCUK) is a global provider of pathway programmes specifically designed for international students. It is uniquely positioned as an organisation because it was founded by a group of leading UK universities. This gives NCUK centres and students unprecedented access and support through the university application process.
