Kursinnehåll

The Pathway Year course is a preparatory course for students who do not meet the level of required English proficiency for university studies in Sweden.

The horizontal aim is to develop and strengthen student skills within higher education through group work, social engagement, peer learning, reflective learning and autonomous learning whilst developing intercultural communication skills, metacognitive skills, information literacy and critical thinking.

The purpose of the course is to provide English language preparation in reading, writing, listening and speaking corresponding to the Swedish upper secondary school course English 6.

The purpose is also to prepare students for higher education by giving support in adjusting to the demands, challenges and expectations of higher education institutions as well as learning the Swedish language. The course will also provide knowledge of culture and society in preparation for studies and academic life.

The course consists of six sub-courses; English 1, English 2, Swedish 1, Swedish 2, Life and Studies 1 and Life and Studies 2.

The courses consist of lectures, seminars and group activities in various fields of academic English and have been designed specifically to meet the needs of non-native English speakers who wish to develop their English language competencies and be able to communicate effectively in an academic environment.
