Lancaster University

Working with Lancaster University, a university consistently ranked highly in the UK league tables, Study Group has created an International Study Centre to enable the university to expand and diversify its international student body.

On-campus degree preparation at a globally recognised university

The Lancaster University International Study Centre building was opened in November 2011 to meet increasing demand, and is already thriving. The centre is home to a diverse cohort of students from around the world, recruited through Study Group’s global marketing and recruitment teams. Housed in the George Fox building in the heart of the university campus, the International Study Centre provides the latest in teaching and technology resources.

Programmes leading to a broad choice of degree courses

Specific academic studies, English language, study preparation and pastoral support give students the knowledge base and study skills to succeed once they progress onto their degree. The International Study Centre offers International Foundation, carefully created with the University's academic team. The programme provides a seamless transition into year one of a broad selection of mainstream courses at Lancaster University, one of the top 15 universities in the UK (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022, Complete University Guide 2022, Guardian University Guide 2022).
