Your International Pathway to Undergraduate and Graduate Study at a US University

The International Pathway Program (IPP) from the International Study Center at the highly ranked University of Hartford, is your route to a degree from the University of Hartford. With our program, you will develop the skills to progress to the undergraduate or Master’s degree of your choice. We provide you with the best possible start to your degree, ensuring that you go on to find academic, social and personal success as a college student in the US.

The IPP is open to students who have proven their academic ability but need to strengthen their English skills to achieve strong results in the collegiate environment. You will learn about the subjects you love while being able to dedicate time to developing your English skills. You can choose between the International Year for undergraduate students, and our Master’s International Year for graduate students – allowing you to continue on to your dream degree at the University of Hartford.

Pathway Program Options

Whether you study in the IPP at the undergraduate or graduate level, you can choose between the following study options:

  • International Year: 2-, 3-, or 4-Semester Pathway
  • Master's International Year: 2- or 3-Semester Pathway

Each semester, you will take a combination of university academic courses (credited) and English courses (non-credited). Course options are dependent upon the required pathway. Once you have reached the required English level you can progress onto your chosen program at the University of Hartford, with support and guidance available every step of the way.
