Study Group announces a new relationship with Cardiff University

02 December 2019

We are proud to be working with a world-ranked university in Wales.

Study Group is excited to announce a new collaboration with Cardiff University, a research-intensive Russell Group university. Founded in 1883 as University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire, it now ranks in the top 200 universities in the world (QS World University Rankings, 2020).

A new research-led offering for Study Group

Cardiff University is ranked 2nd nationally for the impact of its research and is among the top universities in the UK for research excellence (2014 Research Excellence Framework). Cardiff University prides itself on being a “university for all”, and has a focus on student development both in and out of the classroom. As a result, it consistently ranks in the UK top 10 for student experience.

Cardiff University is collaborating with Study Group to reach new numbers of international students and provide them with an unrivalled level of university preparation. At the International Study Centre, students will study a combination of English language preparation and subject-specific content, with additional support to adjust to life in the UK. When they finish their pathway programme, students will be ready to meet the academic challenges of studying at a prestigious UK university.

A highly-ranked university that puts students first

Study Group aims to match students to the university that aligns with their academic, financial and career goals. We are pleased to be able to provide a new experience to our students with Cardiff University International Study Centre.

Students can now choose a Russell Group university with an inclusive, community-focused ethos, less than three hours from London. Wales’s capital city is proudly multicultural and offers a warm welcome to international students. It is also an affordable student city, with rent prices a third cheaper than London, meaning it will appeal to new audiences.

Pathway programmes for all levels

Cardiff University International Study Centre will offer an undergraduate pathway, the International Foundation Year, and the Pre-Master’s Programme for graduate students. Both will lead to a wide choice of degrees at Cardiff University.

Leading in international higher education

With this new collaboration, Study Group continues to prove itself as the global leader in international higher education, trusted to provide exceptional experiences to its students and prepare them for their long-term success.

The first intake will be for September 2020.
