Abstract

The provision of international pathway programmes as a means for international students to access Higher Education in the UK is an area of activity which has developed rapidly in recent decades. This paper will examine a range of key mechanisms which can be seen as markers of quality in international pathway programmes. It will also identify areas of innovation which will ensure that students taking international pathways have a high quality experience that is sufficiently innovative and responsive to their needs and diverse backgrounds. In the process of discussing innovative and principled practices, features of curriculum and mechanisms for the training and development of educationalists will be explored. In order take into account good practice from beyond the UK, case studies from the North America and Europe will also be presented in order to demonstrate ways in which the UK model can learn from beyond the UK context. Relevant experiences of transnational provision, both as an institutional provider and external examiner will also be discussed.
