Study Group’s new online Prepare for Success programme, designed to give international students a head start before joining their academic course in autumn 2020, reached an important milestone today as it gained its 1,000th student.

The course will give learners the confidence and skills they need to progress in their studies in the UK and Europe. The content has been designed to reflect student needs at this time of global uncertainty, giving students the added assurance that their course will prepare them for everything they need on their academic journey.

CEO of Study Group Emma Lancaster warmly welcomed the news, saying: “I am absolutely delighted that staff have worked so hard to create this very important resource for international students to help them be even more fully prepared to succeed in their studies. These have been challenging times for everyone, but Study Group is determined to support our students wherever they are in developing their English language and study skills as well as their sense of an educational community. As a result I have no doubt that our students will achieve even more once they are able to resume their studies in person, and that more than 1000 students have already recognised the importance of putting this preparation time to good use.”

The first cohort of Prepare for Success students will begin their studies on Monday 22nd June. They will gain exclusive access to an extensive range of learning materials, in-depth academic content and English materials, along with regular direct tutor feedback. The course contains 100 hours of online study covering three essential areas to help students achieve success:

  • language skills: With a focus on language development in different contexts (e.g. social, academic, professional)
  • learning skills: Allowing students to develop their skills as a learner and their understanding of what teaching and learning in UK/Europe look like
  • life skills: Helping students apply their new skills and knowledge in real life situations, such as living in a different country or talking to people from different cultures.
