The new English school division English Path will complement GEDU’s Global Banking School, which offers a range of in-house courses and undergraduate and masters programs in partnership with various UK universities.
“The addition of an English Language school – English Path – to our group will significantly enhance our ability to offer life changing education, providing the tools for even more students to access the high quality education offered by GBS,” said GBS CEO Ray Lloyd.
Along with the Dubai campus, English Path will offer classes in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.
GBS offers up to 90% scholarships to UK residents on Universal Credit, while the new English school is offering a 25% Covid Wellness scholarship to international students booking courses by the end of the year, and taken before the close of 2022.
In addition, English Path will further increase the diversity and vibrancy of GBS offerings, which will in turn enrich “the educational experience for all members of our learning community”, Lloyd continued.

“Having Mike and his team on board gives us great confidence that English Path will develop into one of the most highly respected providers in the market today,” Lloyd noted.

“An array of attractive destinations at our university style campuses with onsite gyms and cafes combined with a diverse course offering and scholarship scheme will enable English Path to deliver on our mission of providing access to education to all,” explained Summerfield.
