Creating the right partnership for you

We understand that each of our partner universities has distinct needs and circumstances, which is why we offer multiple delivery and recruitment solutions. This flexible approach means that we can provide a customised recruitment plan that can be scaled up or down to match your needs.   

As a forward-thinking higher education provider, we are also open to new ways of working together that might help you diversify your student population.   

Recruitment for degree admission

We support international students who already qualify for entry to a degree with application, visa and financing processes, and deliver continued assistance as needed throughout the duration of their enrolment at our partner universities.

On-campus degree preparation 

Degree preparation programmes are usually delivered on campus at your university. These fully accredited courses allow students to adjust to international student life, improve their English language level and academic skills in order to meet entry requirements for a degree at your institution.

Off-campus degree preparation 

We also offer off-campus degree preparation programmes, including at our flagship International College in London. Other overseas off-campus partnerships include learning centres in Japan and Hong Kong SAR, which allow students to stay close to home as they prepare for a degree. 

Transnational education 

We can help your school deliver complete degree programmes in foreign countries. Currently, we are supporting transnational degree delivery at our Higher Education Academies in Singapore and Hong Kong SAR on behalf of 14 universities based in the USA, UK, Ireland and Australia. 

Online education 

Through Kaplan Open Learning, we offer fully accredited online undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from selected university partners to students who are unable or would prefer not to attend campus-based classes. This flexible solution allows students to fit their degree studies around existing commitments. 

English language testing 

Our partner universities use our secure online English test for various purposes, including as an admissions test administered either by Kaplan or the University. This English test has a two to five-day turnaround time and can also be used as a tool to assess and offer progress reports to students on Pre-Sessional English programmes. 

Who partners with Kaplan?

Our university partners are highly respected institutions in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand that share our vision of creating global citizens. We partner with 60+ universities worldwide, and are open to new opportunities to extend the positive impact of international education.
