Pathway programmes for international students

Here at London Met we've partnered with Education Centre of Australia (ECA) to offer international students the opportunity to join a pathway programme. Our pathway programmes will provide you with the necessary support, skills and confidence to begin university and will help prepare you for your degree with us. There are two types of programme depending on the level at which you're looking to study:

International Foundation Programme: This programme is designed for students who have completed high school or partial university education overseas and need additional support in the transition to bachelor’s (undergraduate) study.

Pre-Master's Programme: This programme provides students with an entry route to a master’s (postgraduate) degree with us.
