Admissions & Pathway to Ascenda Students can gain conditional admission to ASM by registering in the EC Pathways Programme. The University Pathways Programme is designed for international students who are planning to study at ASM and need to meet the language requirement of their conditional offer.

Students who seek admission to ASM but do not have the abovementioned certification or entry credentials will be required to take ASM’s English Placement Test (EPT). Students must meet all other ASM program admission requirements. This includes completion of a HS diploma, and provision of official documents and transcripts.
