Queens College, the second largest of CUNY’s 11 senior colleges, offers over 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs located in the New York City borough of Queens.
“It will enable more students to benefit from the vibrant student life that the New York City area has to offer”
The agreement provides for Navitas to operate a Global Student Success Program for Queens College on its campus.
The QC-GSSP will support the transition of international students to a US university environment and prepare them for future academic success.
Students who successfully complete the QC-GSSP will continue their undergraduate or graduate degree studies at Queens College.
In addition to recruiting international students to attend the QC-GSSP, Navitas will also recruit eligible international students for direct entry into Queens College’s degree programs.
The agreement is for an initial five-year term with potential extensions for an additional five years.
“Navitas is delighted to be partnering with Queens College, which is a leading institution in the US for the quality and value of its academic programs and student achievement,” said Navitas Group CEO, David Buckingham.
“We are excited to support the College with its internationalisation strategy, which will enable more students from around the world to benefit from the excellent academic programs and vibrant student life that Queens College and the New York City area have to offer.”
Queens College provost and vice president for Academic Affairs Elizabeth Hendrey added, “With a campus located in America’s most ethnically diverse county and students from more than 150 nations, we are looking forward to beginning a partnership with Navitas.
“We are eager to work together to increase the global perspective of our campus community and provide students worldwide with greater access to a high-quality Queens College education.”
Queens College will be Navitas’ eleventh North American partner.
