Foundation Pathway Program In UK, USA, Canada and Australia
The American Universities Pathway Program (AUPP) has been developed and is administered by World Education Group, an international educational services organization based in the US, with formal agreements with close to 50 public and private universities all over the United States.
Students earn US university credit that will count toward their Bachelor’s degree. By doing so, their families can reduce by $25,000-35,000 per year the money they need to spend on their student’s Bachelor’s degree study.
Students with a Bachelor’s degree may earn credit towards a Master’s degree and save money using our Pathway Program and Full-Support learning courses.
The US Pathway Program (USPP) is a multi-component program created by the Consortium of North American Universities (CNAU). Through USPP, students in Nigeria are prepared to enter a bachelor’s degree program in one of the CNAU institutions. Upon successful completion of the USPP, students are offered admission to a CNAU member institution without requiring a TOEFL or IELTS score

Why should you study a degree pathway program?
Starting university can feel overwhelming, especially for international students. In a pathway program, you will take English classes relevant to university study, academic classes in your degree area, as well as gain practical support to help you adapt to your new life as a university student.
As a pathway program student you will experience the best of both worlds: you are fully integrated into the university, yet also benefit from additional support.
Excellence Education Travels and Tours provides pathway programs for both undergraduate and graduate students to give you the specialist support you need to succeed in your studies.
Undergraduate Pathway Programs
What is the Undergraduate Pathway program?
Undergraduate Pathway programs combine intensive language study, academic skills development and academic coursework in a carefully constructed program designed to move students successfully through the first year of an undergraduate degree program.

Academically qualified applicants for Undergraduate Pathway who are unable to provide a language proficiency score (or who provide one that is below the minimum) will be conditionally admitted to the Undergraduate Pathway program and required to complete INTO OSU Academic English through Level 4 before beginning the OSU academic coursework portion of the program. All students have a study plan and receive academic advising that is reflective of their specific Conditional Undergraduate Pathway program.
Graduate Pathway Programs
What is the Graduate Pathway program?
The innovative Graduate Pathway program is a pre-Master’s program that provides international students a direct path to various graduate degrees at the university. The program gives students the academic foundation, essential language skills and GMAT/GRE test preparation to successfully move on to the Master’s degree.
Who is the program for?
Direct admission to the Graduate School and respective department-based graduate programs at Oregon State University is highly competitive with only the best and most-prepared students being selected. Many students who meet all the minimum entry requirements are not admitted because of the competitive nature of the programs. The Graduate Pathway program is designed for international students who:
- Require additional preparation to be admitted directly to the Graduate School
- Fall short of meeting the minimum GPA or test score requirements
- Need further English development
- Need to improve study skills for success in their chosen field of study
What classes will Graduate Pathway students take?
The academic courses included in the Graduate Pathway programs are carefully chosen to ensure success in graduate level studies. Students will be advised on which modules to follow during their academic orientation and the INTO OSU center.
What are the benefits?
Pathway students receive the highest level of support during their transition abroad, making it an ideal choice for international students who are driven to achieve high academic goals. Other benefits include:
- Assured progression to an OSU graduate program*
- Up to 40 hours of TOEFL test preparation and GMAT or GRE preparation

Entry requirements for foundation programmes in the United States
In the U.S., most universities require students a 2.5+ GPA or equivalent, plus TOEFL iBT minimum score between 60 and 80. Several institutions accept candidates who have completed a number of years of study during secondary school in the following fields:
- English: 4 years
- Mathematics: 4 years
- History/Social Studies: 3 or more years
- Science: 3 or more years.
What if you do not meet the English language requirements for degree study?
It is common for international students to meet all other requirements for university except English language. We will support you with intensive English language training to fit your needs. We offer a variety of program types depending on your English level.
Pathway Courses Provide The Academic Preparation Students Need
Pathway courses are different from standard English language training programs. In addition to improving English skills in an immersive environment, students learn other academic skills that are specific to the area they are interested in studying.
Best of all, your one-year Pathway program offers the same amount of credits as a full year of college, meaning you can go straight into sophomore year at your chosen institution once you complete your course.
