The University of Idaho International Student Success Program will commence in September 2017 on the university’s main campus in Moscow, Idaho, subject to regulatory approvals.
“We look forward to enhancing the University of Idaho’s brand as an international study destination”
The pathway will prepare both undergraduate and postgraduate students for study at the university.
Navitas will also recruit international students for direct entry to the university as well as through the pathway programme.
“The University of Idaho is an outstanding university and we are very pleased to be partnering with them to create more opportunities for international students and the wider university community,” said Rod Jones, Group CEO of Navitas.
“We look forward to enhancing the University of Idaho’s brand as an international study destination and supporting their goals by growing and diversifying the university’s international student population.”
The university currently teaches international students from 77 countries across 124 majors, but wants to boost and broaden its international intake further, its president, Chuck Staben, said.
“Expanding and enriching our international student population brings our world class education to the world, and brings unique experiences and deeper cultural understanding to our university,” Staben commented.
“We are excited to partner with Navitas to introduce international students from all points on the globe to the University of Idaho.”
The latest partnership is part of Navitas’s aggressive North America growth strategy. It saw 18% year-on-year growth in student numbers across its US and Canadian partnerships to spring 2015 and plotted a similar growth trajectory for 2016 and beyond.
