All students will be offered academic counselling throughout their course and we will help them to apply for one of our partner colleges to take a two-year Associate Degree. The Associate Degree can then lead to a third year at an American University to gain a Bachelors Degree

Some of our partners require an Upper-Intermediate level of English for entry, and some will require an Advanced level for entry.

We recommend that students who want to take advantage of this Pathway take our English for Academic Purposes module during their course. This module helps students to develop their academic study skills and prepare for university.
