A new International Study Centre (ISC) is set to come to the University of Lincoln at the start of the next academic year, this autumn. The centre will be located on the Brayford campus.

The ISC will offer international students tutoring and a direct, yet conditional route onto certain degrees at the university.

Professor Scott Davidson, the university’s pro-vice chancellor for external affairs, said: “We currently have a relatively small group of international students studying with us at Lincoln and are keen to see these numbers increase.”

He added: “Our overseas contingent consists primarily of postgraduates and we’re looking forward to adding an increased number of both undergraduates and postgraduates to the mix.”

The courses offered to these students include a foundation certificate in engineering, a media studies undergraduate degree programme, among others.

James Pitman, managing director for Study Group – the team behind the centre – said: “The University of Lincoln ISC will provide excellent courses for international students that are fully endorsed by the university itself.

“We are delighted to partner with Lincoln as it is a first class, rapidly developing institution that already excels in its core subjects. It is keen to increase the cultural diversity on campus as it recognises this will benefit both the domestic and international students.”
