Why University Pathway Programmes On Campus are Better than School-Based Programmes for Study in the UK

Tue 06 Sep 2016

British universities are respected around the world for their prestigious educational quality. While these high standards make it particularly challenging for international students to achieve acceptance and success at UK institutions, pathway programmes help students from outside the country develop the necessary skills to meet entry requirements and directly progress to the course of their choice.

With personalised support services in a vibrant, multicultural university environment, students gain the academic and communication skills to confidently pursue the education they've dreamed of. While many schools offer various types of academic preparation programmes, studying on campus with ONCAMPUS pre-university programmes is the ideal foundational experience for international students.

Here are three good reasons to choose a pathway programme on campus.

Enjoy a True University Experience While Meeting Requirements for UK Universities

Coming to a new country to pursue ambitious educational goals is no small challenge but being part of a welcoming university community environment makes the transition much easier. Students in ONCAMPUS pathway programmes are based on the campus of our partner universities, meeting peers from around the world and participating in school activities as they become accustomed to life and higher education in the UK.
