Sudent working online

Discover how we are supporting our students and partners at our Colleges and Centres around the world during this rapidly changing situation.

Getting students to where they want to be

We are doing everything to make sure that our students' education isn't impacted due to COVID-19. It is our promise that we will get students on the right course, ensuring they can progress to their chosen university, and, ultimately, succeed in their career. Read an open letter from our CEO, Emma Lancaster, on how Study Group continues to support students to achieve their educational dreams.

Learning online

We have moved our programmes online so students can begin their studies without delay.


High-quality academic preparation

We offer the same level of exceptional, high-quality teaching students would expect from on-campus learning and an Office for Students registered provider. It is our promise that we will get students on the right course, ensuring they can progress to their chosen university, and, ultimately, succeed in their career. 

The latest expertise and research

Study Group recently acquired online learning specialists Insendi. Insendi’s research-informed online higher education work is used by leading university business schools around the world. The company’s founder, Dr David Lefevre, has written an article describing how to create an outstanding online experience for international students.

Supportive student experience

Students can feel assured that academic guidance, tutorial sessions, careers guidance and personal support is all available virtually. We are here for them throughout their academic journey and will give them the confidence they need to succeed.

We've spoken to some of our staff and students about their experiences of learning online. 

Developing students' competitive edge

Our newly developed preparation course is available to students in the UK – for free – who are getting ready to start their academic programme with us. Designed to give them a head start on their studies, this virtual course offers more than 100 hours of content to develop academic knowledge, skills and language ability. 

Virtual events and fairs

We are moving our events and university fairs online to provide a student-focused approach to counselling during the student recruitment journey. Find out more about our online events.

Supportive, safe and welcoming

We are in touch with all of our existing students by email, and information for prospective students is available on all of our websites. Student safety is of utmost importance to us and we are ensuring they have all the information they need to inform their decisions during this time.

We are committed to supporting students transition to on-campus learning as soon as we feel it is safe to do so.
