New facility unveiled for Study Group pathway students

13, March, 2015

Global education provider, Study Group, is primed to unveil state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities at the University of Sheffield, a year after it was awarded a contract to manage the university’s international college and its university pathway programmes.  

The brand new facility, which was part of the agreement signed back in April 2014, comprises 25 classrooms, two large lecture theatres, a science lab with emphasis on physics and engineering and five quality study zones and is within walking distance of other university buildings and accommodation.

“With state-of-the-art facilities that have been specifically designed for effective learning, this new building signifies the quality that students can expect at the University of Sheffield International College, which will enhance the student experience and provide superior outcomes for those involved,” said James Pitman, Study Group’s Managing Director UK and Europe.

Set to welcome its first cohort of international students this September, and second and third waves in January and April 2016, the college will provide a safe and friendly learning environment for up to 1,000 international students enrolled on degree preparation programmes, said Study Group in a company statement.

Programming developed alongside the university – a member of the Russell Group of universities – will ensure students are fully prepared for Sheffield’s degree courses once they matriculate in September 2016, it added.

The launch of the ‘Made in Sheffield’ scholarship programme last year will complement the facility’s launch. Up to 300 awards have been made available for international students set to commence their studies at the college for the 2015/16 academic year, with the best performing students eligible for up to UK£3,500 (US$5,172).

Study Group has more than 35 university partnerships in the UK, Europe, North America and Australasia.
