The centre will provide a university foundation level education across a broad range of subjects, enabling international students drawn from a geographically diverse population to progress to degree program study at the university.

“This partnership will deliver academically outstanding students from a wide range of countries”

Further programs, including an International Year One program in Business and Management, are intended to be introduced by the parties over time.

Subject to customary regulatory approvals, Navitas said it expects to commence operating the centre from September 2019, with an agreement for an initial five-year period.

“We are delighted to be partnering with the University of Leicester…to significantly increase the proportion of international students attending the university”, said Navitas Group chief executive officer, David Buckingham.

“It has demonstrated a strong commitment to being a world leader in all aspects of research and engagement, education and the wider student experience over the last 10 years.

“It will be a highly complementary and attractive part of our UK portfolio and an attractive destination for students from around the world,” he added.

President and vice-chancellor of the University of Leicester, Paul Boyle said the new partnership reflects their shared ambition for growth and global reach.

“This strategic partnership will deliver academically outstanding and well-prepared students from a wide range of countries and provide them access to the excellent educational opportunities offered by the University of Leicester,” he added.
