Universities follow 'pathways' to international students From this month a new faculty will open on the campus of Brighton University on England's south coast. The university's International College, a joint venture with US private education provider Kaplan, will provide a staging post for students from outside the UK who need to raise their English language proficiency and hone their study skills before embarking on degree-level studies. Students who successfully complete their International College programme will be guaranteed entry to the course of their choice. Brighton is one of a growing number of higher education institutions linking up with private providers to establish "academic pathway" programmes that aim to not just improve the skills of international students but create new opportunities to promote their courses in an increasingly competitive global student market.

6 Leadership Styles, And When You Should Use Them You don’t need an MP3 player, a turntable, or a CD player to listen to Tristan Perich’s new album, Noise Patterns. All you need is a pair of headphones—"not earbuds," says the composer—and a willingness to hear music in noise. The 34-year-old Perich’s compositions push the border between white noise and electronic music, frequently straddling the two as if the static on your old television started emitting a strangely beautiful pattern of sound. But Perich doesn’t just compose music: His music is the instrument itself.
