We partner with the University of South Wales to deliver an International Pathway College at the University’s Cardiff and Pontypridd campuses.

The pathway and English-language programmes support students to develop their English-language ability and academic study skills to offer guaranteed progression routes into undergraduate degrees in Business, Computing, Engineering, and Creative Industries disciplines at the University.

The programmes are validated by the University of South Wales and taught by QA Higher Education staff.

As the Welsh Capital, Cardiff is a modern, multicultural, safe city. It’s a popular student city and home to thousands of students from around the world.

A fast growing major UK city, students are still able to find lots of green spaces to enjoy, alongside shopping, live sport and music, and a wealth of history and art. There’s something for everyone and great company to do it with. USW Cardiff is in the city centre and the perfect location for creative industries students with specialist facilities. This is also where students can find study spaces, the library and the Students’ Union.

These International Foundation Programmes are specifically designed to help students develop the academic and language skills required for successful progression on to their chosen undergraduate degree with the university. Students study a mix of language, and subject specific modules as they are introduced to life at a UK university, and learn in fully embedded campus facilities.
