Students with levels as low as TOEFL iBT 20 (IELTS 3.5) will be able to enrol at the UW–Fox Valley campus following the specialist Undergraduate Preparation Program delivered by Kings’ International Study Centre on the Fox Valley campus.
“On average students will improve by up to 15 points on the TOEFL scale each term, so from TOEFL iBT 20 it would take three terms of UPP before they would then transfer to the degree program,” Kings director of Marketing Andrew Green told The PIE News.
“We are proud to offer our students this fantastic opportunity”
“Students at TOEFL iBT 61 can enter the University of Wisconsin Fox-Valley straight away.”
After completing the first two years of their degree at UW–Fox Valley students can transfer directly to complete their bachelor’s degree at UW–Madison, with admission guaranteed upon meeting entry requirements.
“We are proud to offer our students this fantastic opportunity. The University of Wisconsin is rightly regarded as one of the best State systems in the US and UW–Madison is an exceptional university ranked in the top 1% of US colleges and universities,” Kings US managing director Jose Antonio Flores said.
Kings Education has had an informal partnership with UW-Fox Valley for the past year, but the new formal contract will allow them to establish a fully-fledged International Study Center (ISC) on the campus.
For UW Colleges, the partnership will bring more diversity on campus, a critical feature of a vibrant international program.
“Kings has opened up new international recruitment pathways for us that we don’t have the resources to develop on our own,” executive director of International Education for UW Colleges Tim Urbonya said.
“As soon as we began partnering with Kings we immediately saw the benefit to our institution, with international students arriving from countries we have never had on our campus before.”
