British Study Centres agrees Ukraine franchise school

UK-based language provider British Study Centres (BSC) has announced the signing of a new franchise agreement to open a school in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

The agreement, which was reached at the recent StudyWorld event in London, adds to BSC's first overseas franchise operation in Algeria, announced earlier this year.


The new school will be located in downtown Kiev on Zolotoustivska Street, and has a target of hosting 100 students by the end of the year for its portfolio of programmes including General English, Business English and IELTS Preparation.


Steve Phillips, Managing Director of Transnational Education at BSC, will open the school at an official launch ceremony on November 11, and said, "I'm pleased on so many levels that we are opening a BSC school in Ukraine. I used to travel and teach here in the 1990s and Kiev has remained one of my favourite cities."


He added, "Ukraine is a great market and we have found an equally great partner to operate our franchise. BSC has an exciting transnational strategy and Ukraine is a big part of that."


Vladimir Naydyuk, Managing Director of BSC Ukraine, commented, "This is a wonderful opportunity for Ukrainians to learn English with high-quality teaching and a premium brand; we have lots of exciting plans for BSC Ukraine in the next couple of years."
