Navitas offers American ‘University Pathway Programme’ at five US universities


KUCHING: When it comes to university-level education, no other country in the world inspires the academic respect as US.

Harvard, Stanford, Princeton and MIT have become global education brands, which have led the way for most of the past century.

In the two most influential global university ranking indexes (The Times Higher Ed and the Shanghai Jiao Tong), American universities have a near monopoly on the Top 10 places, with only Oxford and Cambridge challenging for a spot in the Top 10. For international students, US is a huge draw card. A qualification from a US university can lead to all sorts of career opportunities back home.

As such, Navitas offers a ‘University Pathway Programme’ at five highly respected US universities.

The Navitas ‘University Pathway Programme’ is an excellent option for international students who are looking for a more supportive learning environment in their first year of studies at an American university.

The combination of on-campus university study in small classes with more contact time with teachers and lecturers is a great way to ensure you increase your chances of successfully completing your first year at university in US.

Students who successfully complete the Navitas ‘University Pathway Programme’ go straight into Year 2 of their university degree.

Navitas also offers ‘Pre-Masters’ courses at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Lowell and Western Kentucky University. These one-semester programmes provide the necessary preparation for entry into a Masters degree at a Navitas partner university in the USA. You will also be able to gain credit towards your Masters degree during the ‘Pre-Masters’ programme. The University of Massachusetts campuses (which include Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell) offer a wide range of programmes and fields of study to match every interest.

The University of Massachusetts was rated number 56 in the 2010 Times Higher Education World University rankings — the only public university in New England to make the prestigious list.

Western Kentucky University provides international students an exceptional education in a classic American setting. With a US News and World Report ranking as a Tier 1 — Regional South university, students benefit from superior academic programmes as well as the individual attention Navitas is known for.

At the University of New Hampshire (UNH), international students choose from over 80 courses of study on campus ranked in the top 300 – 400 Universities in the world by Shanghai Jiaotong University.
