University pathway programmes

Preparing you for degree success

Cardiff University International Study Centre is a great introduction to living in the UK. We know that studying abroad is a big step and we will support you as you adjust to life in Wales. You will study academic classes, as well as study skills and English language so you will feel confident when you join the University at the end of your programme.

We offer a range of pathway programmes, depending on your level of study. Whether you are preparing for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, we have a programme for you. If you do not yet meet the English language requirements, you can first study an English language programme with us. Once you finish your programme at the International Study Centre, you can choose from hundreds of degree subjects at Cardiff University.
