Pathway Programs

Your Path to American Universities

Pathway Programs provide a clear, guaranteed pathway to international students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the United States. Pathway Programs, particularly those offered at the University of California, Davis, give you the opportunity to acclimate to the U.S. and U.S higher education and complete your language and cultural preparation before attending college in the U.S.

If you’re interested in studying in the U.S., but need to improve your English language skills first, we offer two options for international students to choose from. Each program offers intensive English-language training, academic and support services, enrichment activities and no TOEFL or IELTS test scores are required for admission.
