University Access Centres

In the hearts of cities worldwide

We believe international student mobility is best enabled through a balanced approach of in-market presence supported by local expertise and advanced technology, driving a seamless enrollment process.

Our University Access Centres (UACs) bring participating universities’ propositions into the heart of cities worldwide where higher education is in greatest demand, giving students, parents and agents optimal access to them.

For our university partners, UACs drive greater enrollment, better student experiences and increased revenues.
