Lesley University, the first partner for ILSC's GlobalFoundations brand
ILSC Education moves into pathway sector

Global international education provider ILSC Education Group has announced a move into the university pathway sector with the launch of a new GlobalFoundations brand, as well as a first partnership with Lesley University, USA.

In a statement, ILSC said that GlobalFoundations will partner with USA colleges and universities to increase international student enrolment and build on-campus support systems for students.


"GlobalFoundations will design and implement on-campus, first-year academic programmes that include cultural immersion and English language education, as well as support services. Students who successfully complete the first year move on to Year 2 of their degree programme."


The first partnership for the brand is with Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where the most popular study fields are arts, education, business management and mental health counselling, according to ILSC.


The company said that Lesley University was ranked 181 in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report rankings, had a high employment rate, and that all students gain professional experience through internships matched to their area of study.


"We're proud to partner with such an exceptional institution as Lesley University," said ILSC GlobalFoundations Managing Director, Rick Rattray. "This is a wonderful opportunity to share Lesley's strengths with an international audience."


Lesley University President, Jeff A. Weiss, commented, "Our partnership with GlobalFoundations will enhance our recruitment, outreach and support of international students.


He added, "Our international students have always contributed both intellectually and culturally to our community. The critical interchange among students from around the world adds to the perspectives our students develop, shapes the work they do, and extends the reach of their impact."


The ILSC Education Group portfolio also includes English language programmes delivered in nine locations in four countries worldwide, and vocational courses in Australia, Canada and India.
