Kaplan’s new pathways partnership with the University of Essex

26 Sep 2017 - Barni Homden

We're delighted to announce a new partnership with the University of Essex, and the opening of the University of Essex's International College!

International students can now apply to study at the University of Essex via Kaplan Pathways, with many study options available. These include pathway courses at the new International College, located on the University's beautiful Colchester campus.

This means you can now study at this leading UK university, even if you don’t quite have the grades needed for your preferred degree. A pathway course at the International College will prepare you for university, and guarantee progression to a bachelor’s or master’s degree (when you pass at the required level).

You’ll receive helpful support and advice throughout the application process. The first intake will be September 2018 for all courses.

The University of Essex is a true innovator among UK universities. In fact, it was founded in the 1960s to challenge the dominance of the traditional, elite ‘red brick’ universities. It has been extremely influential since then, and is a highly regarded institution. It’s also an incredibly welcoming place for international students, and one of the most international universities in not only the UK, but the world too.

A degree from the University of Essex will help you succeed in life, and is valued greatly by employers. The University has an impressive record for investing in its facilities and students, and its international alumni, from all over the world, have gone on to do great things.

Everything you need to know

You have a number of options for studying at the University of Essex, including via the new on-campus International College. Starting from the 2018/19 academic year, the College will offer the following degree preparation courses:

Foundation Certificate (leading to year 1 of a bachelor’s degree). Subjects available include:

  • Humanities
  • Science and Health
  • Social Sciences

International Year One (leading to year 2 of a bachelor’s degree). Subjects available include:

  • Business
  • Economics

Pre-Master’s (leading to a master’s degree). Subjects available include:

These courses are taken on the University campus, so you’ll have access to its fantastic facilities and resources straight away, just like a real University of Essex student.

Fees and entry requirements

Tuition fees for pathway courses at the International College range from £13,100 to £19,080. You will typically need a UKVI IELTS score of at least 4.0 in all skills for the Foundation Certificate and International Year One, and UKVI IELTS of 4.5 with at least 4.0 in all skills for the Pre-Master’s.
