Academic Study Is Challenging...Make Sure You Are Prepared

It can be lonely when you first enter college. You might feel unsure when you don't know what to do. There are so many things on the internet, but nothing seems to help.

These difficulties are all part of the journey. It won't be easy and success is not always possible.

However, the chance of success will be increased when you can get the best information and support.

The Academic Pathway Course is a safe place where you can connect with professional English teachers on a deeper level and set your own paths and goals.

Matt McGinniss, Englishtec Founder (Australia)

"The Academy Pathway Course is much more than a place to learn Academic and English skills. This is a place to build your confidence so you can pass all your units at college or university which will save you time and money."

Why is there an application process for the Academy Pathway Course?

We do not accept everyone into the Academy Pathway Course. This is because the online environment is a place where students sometimes lack commitment.
