Oglethorpe has partnered with global education firm, Study Group, to recruit international students starting with the Fall 2017 intake.
Study Group provides its university partners with global marketing and recruitment services, matching well-prepared international students with the university that can best satisfy their scholarly ambitions. Study Group further prepares these students to be successful through a rigorous pathway program upon their arrival.
Inside the International Study Center at Oglethorpe University, students will take intensive English for academic purposes and acculturation courses, as well as general studies courses, as part of their first year of study (the International Year). This sheltered environment provides them the tools to be successful in their studies, graduate, and achieve their professional aspirations.
“As part of our globalization strategy, choosing the right pathway partner was important,” said President Lawrence Schall. “We are excited to be working with Study Group, who was chosen for their managed growth approach and keen global expertise that will help us achieve the international aspects of our long-range plan. In addition to our strong industry partners, international students–like all of our students–will also have the advantage of the ARCHE program (Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education), which provides access to courses from more than a dozen other Atlanta colleges and Universities.”
Study Group Higher Education North America’s Managing Director, Emily Williams Knight, Ed.D. explains, “At Oglethorpe, our students will have the advantage of creating their dream career and interning with major corporations headquartered near Oglethorpe’s campus, making this four-year international study experience highly distinctive and ideal for the ambitious career-minded scholar. We look forward to having our students succeed through this unique partnership.”
