Significant Franchise opportunity in Pakistan.

A well established local education provider is keen to find a UK university to partner with for the franchising of a range of UG and PG Programmes.  The local partner has recently acquired a campus in Islamabad in Pakistan and is keen to offer UK degree programmes.  They will initially focus on Business course, but will then look to develop engineering and computing courses. They will start with 400 students studying business programmes, but their projections are to grow to around 3000 students on this campus within 4 years.  The model will be a franchise, with local faculty delivering the programmes, though there could be an element of blended provision in the programmes. They are also looking at developing similar campuses in other significant cities in Pakistan.
