Students will be prepared for a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes with the first intake entering Kaplan in September 2020 and the first cohort of students progressing to the Queen Mary in September 2021.
“Queen Mary is a truly global university and our international outlook informs our approach to everything we do”
Queen Mary has more than 27,000 students and over 160 nationalities represented on its London campuses.
The deal marks the first time that a Russell Group university in London has partnered with Kaplan International Pathways.
“Queen Mary is a truly global university and our international outlook informs our approach to everything we do, from our international partnerships and research collaborations to transnational education and student recruitment,” said Colin Bailey, president and principal of Queen Mary University of London.
“Our wonderfully diverse student population and global outlook make us a natural choice for international students.
“Kaplan are world leaders in international education, and their teaching ethos, support for international students, global recruitment network and central location in London all provide a great fit with our Strategy,” he added.
Students will be located in central London at Kaplan International College London, and will participate in degree preparation courses covering specialist subjects, study skills and English language.
Kaplan International Pathways works in partnership with leading universities to prepare more than 25,000 new international students each year wishing to progress into higher education studies.
“We are delighted to be working with Queen Mary,” said Linda Cowan, managing director of Kaplan International Pathways.
She explained that UCAS recently released their 2019 International Insights report which showed that international students rank ‘quality of teaching’ highest among factors when choosing a university.
“With Queen Mary’s strong reputation for excellence in teaching along with their emphasis on diversity and innovation, we are confident this will be a highly successful partnership providing an exciting opportunity for international students who want to experience a world-class education.”
