Cambridge Education Group expands within the USA
Tue 02 Sep 2014
ONCAMPUS SUNY is a partnership with Morrisville State College, in the State University of New York system. During the program, students will be based at Morrisville State College, a public college campus located in the heart of New York State. ONCAMPUS SUNY will offer international students an authentic US college experience in a safe and secure environment with easy access to multiple cultural attractions, enabling students to become accustomed comfortably.
Upon completion of the University Transfer Program, students will have the opportunity to progress into the second year of degree courses at any of SUNY’s 64 college campus locations. Each college offers a range of different degree courses and a unique college experience, giving international students the flexibility to choose a course, institution, and location that suits their future aspirations.
New York State is home to many cultural attractions for students interested in experiencing real US life. With cities like New York and Syracuse available via the University shuttle system and others just a short drive or plane ride away, students can experience a full range of US culture all within a close commuting distance.
Leslie Crosley, Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management at Morrisville State College, said, ‘Morrisville State College is proud to be partnering with Cambridge Education Group in this exciting venture. We know the international students who join us through ONCAMPUS SUNY will receive a warm welcome from our students, faculty, and community. The College is an ideal setting for international students to acclimate to higher education in the United States. We are proud to offer students a great start and whether they transfer on to other partnering campuses or stay right here at Morrisville, their education will be second to none.’
ONCAMPUS is part of Cambridge Education Group’s FoundationCampus which operates successfully in the UK preparing thousands of international students each year for university courses in the UK. ONCAMPUS is also established in partnership with Wheelock College in Boston and has been assisting students since September 2012.
Fergus Brownlee, Chief Executive of Cambridge Education Group, said, “This is an opportunity like no other for students to experience an authentic American University life in the heart of New York State, while simultaneously building their abilities to be successful at an American Institution. ONCAMPUS SUNY is specifically designed to benefit international students through growth of their University and academic skills as well as to advise students on the US University application process. Through the ONCAMPUS SUNY program at Morrisville State College, students will be prepared to progress to any of the State University of New York’s campuses, the nation’s largest State University system.”
ONCAMPUS SUNY will enroll its first students in January 2015. Applications are now being accepted.
