Specialized Pathways

Laureate College’s Specialized University Prep Pathway Program gives students the preparation they need to be successful in university admission applications as well as in their post-secondary education and even further in their future careers. Starting from personal SWOT analysis and considering the student’s (as well as his/her family’s) career objective, LIC will help to identify the student’s post-secondary education program and thus make a study plan for them.

With unique academic programs, after-school supporting activities and extracurricular programs, all students are able to pursue what interests them most.
