"I chose to continue my studies at the University of Guelph's Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) program through the pathway program because my goal is to become a certified Landscape Architect and the pathway program was the best and fastest option to achieve my goal. The partnership program allows me to skip relearning the foundations that I already thoroughly practiced at Fanshawe while giving me the opportunity to practice the craft immediately in the BLA program. The [pathways] scholarship supported my education and helped me purchase course materials to excel in the BLA program."

"Fanshawe has allowed me the opportunity to transform my lifelong 'passion for fashion' into a practical, business-focused vocation. I am now studying for an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design from the Limerick Institute of Technology in Ireland and am very excited to begin this new step in my journey in the midst of a worldwide pandemic! I am independently paying for my schooling and am extremely grateful for any assistance that helps me to reduce my overall debt and allows me to focus on school."

Facts about pathways:

  • Pathways are the different academic routes a student could take to pursue additional credentials while gaining recognition for their prior learning. Simply put, pathways allow students to take credits with them when moving on to another school or program;
  • With over 60,000 students transferring post-secondary education programs in Ontario every year, Fanshawe has developed partnerships with other post-secondary institutions in Ontario, Canada and abroad to develop pathways and facilitate student transfer and the achievement of a second credential for Fanshawe graduates.
