Pathway programmes at the Leeds International Study Centre complement students' existing knowledge and drive, with vital study skills, academic knowledge and English language training. Students gain the confidence they need to succeed at university and beyond. The International Study Centre is located in the centre of the city, opposite the railway station and close to shops, supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, bars and student accommodation.

“I like the Leeds ISC as we are in small classes instead of big lectures which is good for my development. It also means the tutors know you and you can ask questions, and you can bond with other students more. The teaching style is more independent than at school which I am getting used to.”
