New Study Centre to prepare international students for Cardiff University
9 December 2019
Cardiff University will launch an International Study Centre (ISC) in September 2020, to provide more international students with an opportunity to study here.
The ISC will give international students a route into both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University. The first intake of students will be in September 2020.
Through pathway courses taught at the ISC and designed specifically with the University, students will be offered routes into a wide range of degrees, including STEM, business, media and communications, and medicine and dentistry courses.
The ISC and pathway provision will be managed by Study Group, a global expert in preparing international students for university, and the only pathway provider registered on the Office for Students (OfS) Register of Higher Education Providers.
Cardiff University President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Colin Riordan, said, “Cardiff University is already home to over 7,900 international students from more than 120 countries, attracted by its world-leading teaching and the affordability and vibrancy of Cardiff itself.
“Study Group’s experience in recruiting and educating a diverse mix of international students from all over the world is invaluable to us. We look forward to welcoming the first cohort onto campus.”
James Pitman, Higher Education Managing Director for the UK and Europe at Study Group, notes: “We’re delighted to partner with Cardiff University. The University is known for its teaching and research excellence, and already has a vibrant community of international students."
