We have seen a big increase in activity in the US market over the past 12 months and are now working with around 10 UK universities and an accrediting body in the market.  We see a number of exciting growth areas including:

  • Apprenticeships: This is a really interesting area.  The new administration is promoting the development of apprenticeships and providing funding.  US business is keen on them, but there is a lack of local understanding on how to develop and manage large scale apprenticeship programmes.  We see opportunities for UK universities and colleges to work with US community colleges, private universities and large corporates on the development and management of programmes.  Several private UK providers have already established a presence in this market.  We are supporting a couple of universities in the market but believe the opportunity is potentially very large.

Student Recruitment: We have developed a number of innovative models for recruiting US students, including a programme based around course licencing that focuses on community colleges and 6 UK universities working in partnership.  We have recently recruited a new consultant who was an experienced and senior High School guidance councillor, using her experience

BREXIT Mitigation

We are doing a lot of work with universities on how to deal with the many challenges BREXIT poses, this includes developing strategies which will allow the institution to continue to educate international and EU students, safeguard access to research and student movement.  We have been working at a governmental level in several developing EU markets to understand local sensibilities around UK universities establishing or partnering in their market and have a range of projects under development, including the purchase of private universities, the development of joint faculties and the establishment of deep partnerships.  We are keen to speak to universities in the UK who are looking at how to address BREXIT to see if we can help.
