How are Universities across the UK and the US looking towards expanding their footprint through.....

Universities in the UK and the US are forging new partnerships, in a bid to boost the number of recruitments for international students in their individual campuses. The Oxford International Education Group and Edinburgh Napier University have come together to launch the Edinburgh Napier University International College, which is being looked at as an initiative that will set a new opportunity for students from all around the world to pursue a new route towards enrolling themselves for undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs. The new program is being seen as a pathway for attracting international students to join the pathway courses from January 2024, onwards.

About the program and the courses-

The two undergraduate pathway programs and courses along with one postgraduate pathway course will be available for students who will take admission under the ENUIC Pathway. After successful completion of the chosen pathway courses, the students will be able to progress with one of the 24 undergraduate degrees and one of the 12 postgraduate degrees at Edinburgh Napier University.

As per a statement from the end of the university, students will be fully integrated into the campuses from the first day of joining and will be able to access all support services and facilities. Thus, in order to support the growth of the college, the OIEG will also provide recruitment expertise by leveraging its recruitment and conversion specialists located across 50 major locations across the world and have established a strong network of agents.

How it will be a good opportunity for international students to pursue education in the UK?

Adding this new portfolio will pave the way towards the opening of a new partnership, whereby more international students will get a chance to study in the UK. From the next year, the new process of admission will be starting off, which will be an exciting opportunity for students. This week itself the Business School of Edinburgh Napier University has earned the business accreditation from the AACSB International, which is the longest-serving global accreditation body for all business schools.

At the same time, Montclair State University has also announced its new partnership with INTO University as an effort to expand its offering to international students. The INTO will commence the recruitment process soon, beginning with the New Jersey Campus in the US through its network of education agents for the January 2024 intake. However, this partnership will be a part of the University’s long-term strategic enrollment plan, which is centered around embracing the diversity and enriching the educational experience of the Montclair State University’s Student Body. The main objective behind the partnership will be considered as a strategic step towards enhancing global outreach to attract students from all across the world. The most encouraging part the university has earned in recent times is its dedication towards inclusivity and affordability to deliver top outcomes for students.

However, this collaboration will give international students access to an extensive range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs with the university’s 300+ range of programs across various colleges. At the same time in the UK, the University of Hertfordshire and Navitas have collaborated to deliver the Navitas Hertfordshire International College under a six-year partnership renewal contract. Also, on the other hand, Cardiff University has even freshly renewed its partnership with the Study Group after three years for continuing to offer its collaboration. The integrated efforts of the International Study group would also continue to increase the number of student enrolments to about 800 annually by 2027, as it was declared in a Study Group statement.

However, with all these developments it is being viewed that these new programs will help to ensure a continued process of enrolment for increasing the count of international students in these universities across the US and the UK.
