Further expansion for EC in the USA

10, December, 2014

EC English Language Centres has announced it has added two new schools to its growing US portfolio. Located in the centre of Washington DC and on campus at Oswego, part of the State University of New York (SUNY), both schools are scheduled to open in January 2015.

The Washington DC centre is located on Connecticut Avenue, just a 10-minute walk away from iconic landmark the White House and includes 11 spacious classrooms, modern student facilities and a boutique interior design. “Washington is an incredible city,” said EC Executive Chairman, Andrew Mangion, “a must for anyone who wants to experience life and study in the home of western politics.”

Owing to growing international demand for higher education in English-speaking countries, particularly the US, and following the successful implementation of its first on-campus facility at SUNY Fredonia earlier this summer, EC has also launched a second university-based language centre at the SUNY Oswego campus on the banks of Lake Ontario, NY.

On-campus students will have access to state-of-the-art language learning facilities and a full suite of university amenities and services. Enrolled international students will also benefit from an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course, specifically designed for those interested in pursuing higher education in the USA. “Toefl waivers and concurrent enrolment agreements between institutions ensure that students have a smooth transition into full-time academic study,” said EC in a company statement.

Reflecting on their US expansion plans, Mangion stated, “Ongoing dialogue with our partners and students has informed our latest investment decisions, and we are delighted to now be able to offer two new locations in what has become our primary destination country.”

Established in 1991, with its first school in Malta, EC now operates 21 schools in the UK, the USA, Canada, South Africa and Malta.
