Pathway Courses in Canada

What is a pathway course?

Pathway courses prepare international students for various subjects, including business, economics and psychology. They are ideal if you do not have the qualifications to start a full undergraduate program or want to gain more study confidence for a higher level of work.

Through every step of your course, you will be supported by highly qualified teachers and support staff, both in and outside the classroom. Personal tutors will meet with you regularly to ensure you are on track to pass the program and progress to your chosen degree. Pathway courses offer guaranteed progression to a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs upon completion.

Certain pathway providers have partnerships with universities and colleges and can guarantee progression to that institution if the student achieves high enough grades. Many programmes will see the student based on campus benefitting from full university status with complete access to libraries, equipment and sporting facilities.

- Do I need to study a pathway course?

If you are an international student finishing your high school exams, have completed less than 13 years of education and would like to take your first degree in Canada, you must study a pathway course. A preparation course is ideal for international students who need additional English language and academic preparation for full entry.
