Under the agreement, Malvern House will offer pre-sessional, General English and exam preparation courses to both domestic and international students at UCLan Cyprus, which opened its doors recently as the institution’s first overseas campus.

“I am extremely pleased to announce a partnership between Malvern House Cyprus and UClan Cyprus which will provide a range of new English language courses,” said Dr Lee Chatfield, Rector of UCLan.

“Whether providing support for students wishing to join our joint UK-Cyprus degree programmes or offering international students the opportunity to improve their English language skills, all students will benefit from taking an established Malvern House course in our modern university facilities on the idyllic island of Cyprus,” he said. “Malvern House is an established international leader in English language training and a natural partner for UCLan Cyprus. Both organisations can draw upon a wealth of educational and international experience to provide high-quality courses that students will benefit from and enjoy.”

UCLan Cyprus is offering joint-award full degrees in a range of subject areas, and students are able to transfer to the main UCLan campus in Preston, UK, after one or two years. Chatfield said that the programmes met the requirements of the regulatory bodies in both countries, and were delivered and assessed in English.

“Cyprus, long known as a haven for holidaymakers, is finally being recognised for its quality English language learning,” said Yiota Kontoloucas, Director of Malvern House Cyprus. “Added to the natural beauty of the island and with over 320 days of sunshine, is the high level of English language provision that is available. The English language industry has seen phenomenal growth due to its high standard of education stemming from British roots.”

Malvern House Cyprus, which Kontoloucas said initiated English summer camps in 2005 and established a year-round adult and family centre in 2008, is also the official representative of the university responsible for marketing and student recruitment in several countries including: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Belarus, Serbia, Brazil and Korea.
