Pathway Semester is designed to prepare students for English-language bachelor or master programmes. It develops language proficiency, prioritizing communication in speech and writing, presentation skills and academic writing. Students get acquainted with the culture, history, and functions of Scandinavian society.
This academic program will develop your confidence and critical thinking, equipping you to express yourself and achieve your goals.
