Flexible partnership styles

Transformational comprehensive partnerships

Our comprehensive partnerships support the entire international student journey. We transform your international student offer by providing customized university preparation programs and a complete range of student support services, all supported by award-winning living and learning spaces in the heart of the campus.

Preparing your international students for academic success

We work with our partners to create integrated programs, often called pathways, that provide comprehensive support and academic preparation to international students.

We ensure these programs are aligned with our partners’ curricula and meet the highest independent standards. They help international students make the most of their abilities in a supportive academic setting.

From pre-undergraduate to postgraduate levels, these programs blend subject-specific content with advanced study skills, intensive English language support and extra tutorial help.

And the results are clear. Students report high levels of satisfaction and consistently achieve great final results.

    Guiding your students at every turn

    Students thrive when they feel supported and integrated into the university community. We focus on their key moments – from before they leave home to orientation to ongoing care on campus. Using our broad reach, scale and experience of guiding over 150,000 students through life-changing academic journeys, we make each experience exceptional.

    When international students choose to study with you, they're investing in their futures. We promise to create a support system that ensures it's the best choice they've ever made.

    Volume-building recruitment partnerships

    Many universities turn to us to help them reach a broader pool of qualified international students, to manage controlled expansion or to support their admissions process. Recruitment partnerships allow you to expand into new regions, help your existing enrollment management teams and diversify your student population.
