The International Study Centre (ISC) at the University of Sussex provides International Foundation Year, International Year One and Pre-Master’s programmes to transition international students into full study at the university.

Study Group said that plans in the new ten-year arrangement would include the launch of new academic programmes and a new-look ISC.

Study Group’s collaboration with the University of Sussex, its first public-private partnership, dates back to 2006 and has already been renewed twice.

On announcing the latest extension, James Pitman, Managing Director, Higher Education UK and Europe for Study Group, said, “We are thrilled that our longest-running partnership will continue for another ten years. We are committed to supporting the University of Sussex’s ambitions to grow its international student population and provide an unparalleled experience for students from all over the world – one that sets them up for the future.

“Campus life at the university has been enhanced by its international learners for nearly a decade, and we’re delighted that it will continue to be enriched in the years to come.”

Michael Farthing, Vice-Chancellor for the University of Sussex, commented, “Continuing our work with Study Group means we can carry on offering an outstanding campus-based experience for our valued international students.

“We are a progressive British university and value the influence of international students on the overall student experience. We look forward to welcoming many more learners from around the world to Sussex in the future through our new-look study centre and exciting new programmes.”

The Study Group partnership forms part of the University of Sussex’s wider growth plan to increase the total student body from 14,000 to 18,000.
