IH Cape Town partners with KIC on pathways

Students enrolled at IH Cape Town, South Africa, can soon study in-country on a course designed to help them access UK and Australian universities

The GFP is the first of its kind in South Africa to offer students guaranteed placement at top rated universities

The Kaplan GFP will provide university preparation for talented high school graduates looking to study a bachelor’s degree in the UK or Australia.

The partnership extends the in-country pathway programming that KIC already offers in China, Japan and Lagos, Nigeria. But according to a joint statement by IH Cape Town and KIC, the GFP is the first of its kind in South Africa to offer students guaranteed placement at top rated universities.

Linda Cowan, managing director of KIC, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with IH Cape Town for the delivery of our university preparation programmes. With its strong focus on international student support, International House is a natural partner.”

From September, IH Cape Town will deliver the GFP at their centrally located college in Sea Point, while Kaplan provides the materials, assures the quality of the programme and manages the students’ progression to a university. IH Cape Town currently recruits students from South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Gavin Eyre, Managing Director of IH Cape Town said, “This pioneering programme, delivered in partnership with Kaplan, will give bright students from these regions an opportunity to earn degrees from some of the most prestigious universities in the world.”

The Cape Town school also agreed another partnership earlier this year with sports specialist, eta College. IH Cape Town will initially focus on providing a select range of English, communication and Global Foundation Programs to current eta students enrolled at the Cape Town campus with a view to expanding this offering to additional eta Colleges in South Africa at a later date.

eta College’s new strategic marketing plan is to expand and diversify its marketing efforts to reach international students. Through this partnership, it will be able to promote its health, sports and fitness qualifications through an international agent network.
