Missed the September intake?
There's still time to start a pathway course in 2019!
My pathway course really helped me to settle down and meet friends that were in the same situation. On the academic side, my course gave me a lot of basis for my degree, and also helped me get used to the UK system. Now I'm at university, I've enjoyed getting to know a lot of international people, but also those from the UK - I really like the diverse environment. My advice would be: focus on your studies and having a good time, and take advantage of every opportunity given to you!
On my pathway course, I learnt about political science, sociology and history, as well as general legal practices in the UK and the European Union. All of this gave me a broad knowledge base that I went on to expand during my degree. I also improved my analytical skills, and learnt how to work in a team, communicate effectively, and carry out research. Studying abroad allowed me to experience a totally different culture, learn a new language, expand my horizons and, most importantly, broaden my professional network.
At Northeastern, I became a globally minded person with fluent English communication skills. Now that I have graduated, I use these skills every day in my job when working with colleagues from overseas. Without this learning experience, I cannot imagine how I could survive in such a competitive and fast-paced world.
The best thing about studying abroad was that I was exposed to so many cultures and amazing people who helped shape me into the person I am today. I gained professional connections and met people who I truly consider to be friends for life.
Coming to Kaplan, you know that there are other people who are also from an international background, and that is extremely useful because it gives you the opportunity to meet people with different mindsets and people who have different life experiences.
