What Are Pathway Programs?

VIAST educational institute offers pathway courses that help international students complete their selected credit-bearing academic classes to be admissible in an Institute level degree. Through this program, students would also develop their oratory and writing skills in English or the selected country's instructional language. In some cases, earned credits may be transferred toward an online certificate or a degree by the sponsoring school.

What Are the Benefits of Opting for Pathway Programs?

Pathway programs are important because they offer training at the most rudimentary levels which provide immediate solutions to some of the academic problems faced by students who struggle to have access to higher education. For example, the pathway programs may bridge a readiness gap for some students by providing language and cultural instructions for students with English as the second language in school/college.

Pathway programs also make it possible for individuals from multiple sectors to enter an Institute well-prepared. A professional, for example, may be able to complete a quick course that is all-encompassing of the academic subjects that reinforce his/her vocational skills for career advancement. These adjuvant options increase the students' ability in completing their tasks successfully and confidently while carrying the workload of their Institute programs by enhancing their writing, communication, and time management skills that are necessary to succeed in higher education.
