Pathway Programs for International Students

Inside Higher Ed gives a wonderfully in-depth look at for-profit Pathway Programs (alternatively called Bridge Programs) for international students who need extra English training before beginning University studies in the United States. In addition to giving a clear overview of these programs and their many iterations, the article (written by Elizabeth Redden) unpacks Britain-based INTO’s recent troubles expanding into the U.S. market.

The article is well worth reading for anyone new or old to the fields of international or English language education.

(Disclaimer: Associates in Cultural Exchange is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. A.C.E.’s Language Institutes at Seattle Pacific University and Montana State University serve as Bridge programs to their host institutions. [Students who complete our program may gain conditional acceptance to the host university without taking the TOEFL.])
