Abstract

The provision of international pathway programs as a means for international students to gain access to Higher Education is an area of activity which has developed rapidly in the UK and in several other countries in recent decades. This paper will examine a range of features which can be seen as markers of quality in international pathway programs. It will also identify areas of innovation, support and stimulus for international pathway providers, which can contribute to ongoing quality enhancements. In the process of discussing quality markers and innovative practices, features of curriculum, program design and student experience are discussed and mechanisms for the development of educationalists are explored. Reference is made to content and language-related considerations from the UK and other regions of activity and relevance.
