We offer a range of courses from University preparation programmes in the UK, Australia, USA, China, Japan and Nigeria through to full degree programmes, in partnership with universities at locations in Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. Through our academic partnerships with leading universities, our expertise in international student recruitment and focus on first-rate pastoral care and student support, we provide international students with high quality, flexible international education and study opportunities.

Liverpool International College

Part of Kaplan Inc., Liverpool International College (LIC) operates in partnership with the University of Liverpool to provide a pathway for international students to enter Undergraduate and Post Graduate degrees at the University of Liverpool. LIC is a very special place, where each year over a period of around 9 months, we see students from over 30 countries develop and flourish academically as they prepare for university life. The path can be challenging, as it takes time for students to adjust both socially and academically – but for the members of the LIC team who help to make this happen, that just makes the transformation all the more rewarding.
