With collaborations at institutions in the UK, Australia, the US and Ireland, the move puts Study Group on the European continent for the first time and marks the company’s confidence in opportunities for future expansion.
“We have no other partnerships with Dutch higher education institutions at present but see future potential in the region,” James Pitman, Study Group Managing Director for higher education in the UK and Europe told The PIE News.

Study Group will be a “feeder route’ for Nyenrode Business Universitat through an international foundation year in English that will prepare students to enter directly into a number of undergraduate programmes as well as a two-term pre-MBA course.
Established in 1946 by leaders of Dutch corporations such as KLM, Shell, Unilever, Philips and Akzo, Nyenrode is the only private university in the Netherlands.
It aims to attract internationally oriented, carefully selected students by offering Bachelor degrees and graduate level programes in the fields of general management, accountancy and controlling.
