CEG’s ONCAMPUS division will set up an intensive English programme on the university’s campus for international students who may need additional tutoring in English before enrolling at the university.
International students in their first year of study can also benefit from the programme, which will begin enrolling students in January of next year.
Fergus Brownlee, president of CEG, said the partnership will greatly expand the company’s reach in the US.
“This programme will play a vital role in providing multiple levels of instruction and learner capability”
“We are also pleased to be able to extend the programme to students who have not yet started their college studies, enabling them to benefit from our proven language instruction within an exceptional American university,” he said.
The partnership marks the sixth US partnership for CEG’s ONCAMPUS pathway division. Their most recent being with the University of Rhode Island, announced in June.
The University of Rochester campus currently is home to 3,000 students and scholars from around the world.
“This programme will play a vital role in providing multiple levels of instruction and learner capability while benefitting numerous university constituencies and addressing the unique needs of our multinational student population,” said Jane Gatewood, associate provost for global engagement at the university.
“More than 100 countries are represented on campus, and we look forward to providing English language training as well as cultural and academic support.”
CEG is one of the leading private English medium pathway providers globally. Outside of the US, CEG operates 11 pathway partnerships in the UK and three more around Europe. The worldwide pathway industry has recently been valued at $1.4bn annually.
