Comprehensive university preparation for graduate school
International students need more than just English courses to prepare for university. They must also develop the interpersonal, team-building, and leadership skills that are expected of students who participate in courses.
To have a fulfilling university experience, it is important for international students to learn techniques to properly engage (i.e., become involved) in campus life and culture.
Cohort is an innovative curriculum that helps students to achieve these goals.
For Graduate Students Online or on campus
Graduate Pathways is available only to students conditionally admitted to certain graduate programs (i.e., master’s or doctoral) who are close to the required language proficiency. Courses may be taken online or on-campus, depending on whether the graduate academic course is offered online.
