A five-year agreement with the University of Law has heralded the creation of a one-year foundation programme for international students looking to progress onto ULaw’s two- and three-year degrees.

With the first intake in September, the programme includes opportunities for work experience and mentoring schemes within the UK legal community.

James Pitman, Managing Director, Higher Education UK and Europe for Study Group, said, “We are delighted to announce this milestone partnership with the UK’s premier specialist institution for legal studies; our first with a private HE institution. English law is preeminent in international business and these new programmes will provide students with access to legal careers with world-leading international law firms.”

President and Chief Executive Office of the ULaw, John Latham, said, “Our agreement with Study Group gives international students the unique opportunity to undertake a pathway course to undergraduate programmes at the UK’s largest law school. Through the partnership, we will enable the best performing students to complete an undergraduate degree in three years – one year less than other providers.”

The University of Law was granted university title in 2012 and also has campuses in six other UK locations. Study Group’s language brand Embassy English previously announced it will also operate a centre from the ULaw campus from September.

Study Group has additionally announced a partnership with Coventry University London Campus (CULC), preparing international students for higher education programmes.

Dr Janet Hannah, CEO for CULC, said, “Collaborating with Study Group enables us to continue to attract the brightest and best students from all over the world who want to study for their higher education in London. We were keen to work with a provider who has excellent pathway progression rates and we’re looking forward to a successful relationship.”

Coventry University, which was recently cited in a report by Times Higher Education as the most prolific user of agents in the UK university sector over the last three years, established its London campus in 2010.

The Coventry collaboration becomes the 18th higher education partnership in the UK for Study Group, which also offers pathway programmes in the Netherlands, Ireland, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
