Digital learning success for Kaplan students

20 Jul 2020 - Victoria S Williams

A lot has changed about our world in 2020. We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of living, working and studying. However, one thing hasn’t changed: our hard-working students are still achieving excellent academic results.

2020 progression rates

We’re proud of how many Kaplan students pass their pathway course and progress to their first choice university every year. However, our Spring intake has been a little different — our students completed their courses digitally, many of them from their home country.

Over 3,000 Kaplan students have now completed their UK pathway course online.

In a testament to their hard work and the dedication of their tutors, 93% of students on Kaplan-taught programmes passed their course. Out of that 93%, an incredible 95% of students received an unconditional offer from their 1st choice university!

The results are just as impressive for students at the University of York International Pathway College, where programmes are taught by the University’s expert staff. You can see their progression rates in full in the ‘Results by college’ graphic below.

The numbers are equally impressive when split by course type. Out of all Foundation Certificate students who passed their course, 93% received an unconditional offer for their 1st choice university.

That number rises to 98% for Pre-Master’s students, while 100% of International Year One students received an unconditional offer.

For those few students who didn’t progress to their 1st-choice university, friendly staff are on hand talk them through their options, and help them find a path that’s right for them.

Results by college

Below you can see the overall progression rates at each of our UK colleges in 2020 so far.

University of Bristol International Foundation Programme

We’re also pleased to bring you news of the 2020 finishing cohort of students on the University of Bristol’s International Foundation Programme.

The programme is taught by the University’s own expert lecturers at the Centre for Academic Language and Development, and the completing students’ results are just as impressive as those on our Kaplan-taught programmes: 97% of students received an offer from the University of Bristol for an undergraduate degree! 

These results are hugely encouraging as we shortly welcome the first Kaplan-recruited students to the International Foundation Programme in September 2020. They also show how effective the University’s digital learning solutions are, allowing so many students to succeed after switching from face-to-face learning during their pathway course.

University of Nottingham Engineering and Physical Sciences Foundation Certificate

Students on the University-taught Engineering and Physical Sciences Foundation Certificate at the University of Nottingham are also celebrating similar success. Of those who passed the course, 100% of students progressed to an undergraduate degree at the University of Nottingham!

A fantastic achievement

We think all of our students deserve a big round of applause! Not only do these results demonstrate how hard they worked, but how quickly they adapted to new ways of learning.

Their tutors have worked incredibly hard too, delivering engaging, interactive lessons via Zoom, and other online platforms, to ensure their students still had a rewarding educational experience.

Start your path to success

We think these results clearly prove how successful our digital learning methods, and those of our university partners, have been for both students and teachers.

Although we’re looking forward to welcoming students back to our colleges this September for an innovative blended learning approach, our fully digital learning solutions will still be available for students who need them.

Whether you’re ready to join us in the UK this Autumn or would prefer to start your studies online in your home country, we hope our students’ huge achievements will reassure you that you’ll enjoy a high-quality learning experience.
