The Kaplan International Pathways story started in 2005, when we partnered with Nottingham Trent University in the UK, opening Nottingham Trent International College (NTIC) on the University’s main campus.
Today, we have more than 40 university partners across the UK, Ireland, North America and Australia, plus over 20 learning centres worldwide. This gives students a world of choice for their university study options.
Our success story is underpinned by our overall mission – to connect students, agents, sponsors and partner universities by matching life-changing international education opportunities with individual needs and aspirations. Browse our timeline to discover more.
Building work begins on the new residence for Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham Trent International College students.
Our new residence opens in Nottingham, offering high-quality accommodation in the city centre. Since 2017, this accommodation has also been available to students at the University of Nottingham International College.
