University Pathway Programmes with INTO
Students taking the St Giles INTO Pathway Programme will first take an International Semester Course (ISC) of 24+ weeks at any St Giles Centre in the UK or US in order to reach the required English level for an INTO Pathway Programme.
They will be required to take an IELTS (UK)/TOEFL (US) examination preparation module during their course and can also select the following modules:
In the UK, most international students will require an International Foundation Course which leads to the first year of an undergraduate degree. Although, some students may qualify to join the International Year One Course which leads to the second year of an undergraduate degree.
In the US, students can choose either Standard/Accelerated Pathway Admission or Direct Admission. Admission to a Pathway programme allows students to start their undergraduate degree with a slightly lower GPA and TOEFL score, yet still earn university credit toward a degree and receive a higher level of support and academic preparation by INTO.
There are also courses suitable for students who need to prepare for Master’s level degrees in the UK or US, details on request.
Most INTO Pathway Programmes have two or three start dates per year, all of which lead directly on to further study at the university or college of choice.

"I think St Giles Eastbourne has lots of merits. Firstly, even though it is a small city, people can go to the beach and have a good time. Since I arrived in Eastbourne, I have enjoyed natural scenes. In my opinion, there is an atmosphere of peace in Eastbourne."Hannah Lee ,South Korea
