Conditional offers will be issued to CATS College students before they arrive in the UK to study A level, International Baccalaureate or the University Foundation Programme in September 2019.

“International study changes the lives of the young people and families who benefit from and invest in it”

Once students have successfully completed their course they can progress directly to their chosen partner university.

Degree programs on offer range from Business and Law to healthcare-related degrees, and there is also a partnership with St George’s University Medical school offering guaranteed progression to a five-year MD program subject to meeting entry requirements.

Jane Chafer, director of Marketing and Corporate Affairs at the University of Exeter – one of CATS Colleges university partners offering conditional progression – said international students are incredibly important to the diversity of their academic community.

“[International students] bring different experiences, perspectives and ideas – all of which go towards shaping our future world and finding innovative solutions to our global challenge,” she said.

“International study changes the lives of the young people and families who benefit from and invest in it. We are hugely excited to be extending our partnership with CATS Colleges because of this.”

Commenting on the importance of the partnerships, Stephen Carter, Global Sales and Marketing director at CATS Colleges added: “we provide independent higher education advice to help students choose the right degree program and university to achieve their ambitions.
