The new teaching centre will begin operating two-semester foundation programs from October 2023.
It has been created in partnership with the Irish medical education pathway provider Castel Education that CEG and its parent company Bridgepoint acquired in 2021.
Along with its portfolio across the UK, Europe and the US, CEG is “pleased to give international students the opportunity to study in a country with such a renowned reputation for its standard of education”, Brendan Webb, CEO, Commercial said on the announcement of the location in Ireland.
“We strive to support students in developing key skills for lifelong success through our partner universities, and this new centre in Ireland will help launch the academic and professional careers of a new cohort of international students,” he said.
UniHaven has secured both QQI and ILEP approval to run the Level 5 international foundation program in Ireland from 2023 over the last three years, CEO of UniHaven Brian McDonald said.
“We are delighted to be one of Cambridge Education Group’s Irish foundation providers and to be at the heart of the launch of the ONCAMPUS Ireland brand,” McDonald highlighted.
Two programs – a business & social sciences pathway and a engineering & science pathway – are designed to allow students to progress to undergraduate degrees at a range of top-ranked partner universities in the country.
CEG was reportedly up for sale before sources that Bridgepoint told Education Investor said that any acquisition deals had collapsed as a result of “unrealistic price expectations”.
