The University of Sussex International Study Centre (ISC) in the UK, operated by global education provider Study Group, has moved to a new, modern home on the university campus.

Vaughan Leyshon, Centre Director at the University of Sussex ISC, and Clare Mackie, University of Sussex Pro Vice Chancellor, officially opening the new facility.

The new ISC, located in the Friston Building, provides cutting-edge learning spaces, break-out areas, a common room and staff offices, Study Group said in a statement.

Vaughan Leyshon, Centre Director at the Sussex ISC, and Clare Mackie, University of Sussex Pro Vice Chancellor, cut the ribbon of the new centre at a special ceremony recently.

Leyshon said, “The new home for the International Study Centre gives us the opportunity to provide an even better experience for our international students. The state-of-the-art facilities provide the best possible teaching and learning environment and allow us to make maximum use of technology. I am delighted with our new premises and confident that our students will benefit hugely from the investment in the new facilities.”

The Sussex ISC provides Foundation Year, International Year One and Pre-Master’s programmes for international students.

Mike Everett, Study Group Chief Operating Officer, UK and Europe, said, “We are delighted to have an excellent new facility for our longest-standing ISC. Having signed a new contract for the next 10 years, we look forward to having a successful relationship with the University of Sussex for many more years to come.”

Mackie commented an international dimension was core to the university’s 2017-18 strategic plan. “We are delighted to be able to open this new facility, which we think reflects Study Group’s professional standing and the work they do at the university.”

Study Group offers pathway programmes in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Canada, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
