Navitas joins hand with eleventh North American partner to provide international education

Navitas Limited (ASX: NVT) acquires new internationalisation partner in the city of New York, United States. The global education provider, Navitas today announced that the company has inked an agreement with Queens College of The City University of New York to provide Global Student Success Program.

The agreement will see the Navitas operating Global Student Success Program (QC-GSSP) for the transition of Queens’ international student to an environment of United States’ universities and prepare them for further academic success. The term of the agreement has been fixed to 5 years with the option to extend the contract for a further 5 years.

Queens College is the second largest senior colleges of New York City’s public university, The City University of New York. It offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduates degree programs from a campus located in Queens, New York which covers approximately an 80-acre area with state-of-the-art facilities.

Navitas Group CEO, David Buckingham stated that it is a pleasure of Navitas to get associated with Queens college the leading institution of the United States for the quality and value of its academic programs and student achievement. Mr Buckingham added that Navitas endeavours to strengthen the college’s internalisation strategy that will enable more students from around the world to benefit from the excellent academic programs and vibrant student life that Queens College and the New York City area have to offer.

Queens College will be Navitas’ eleventh North American partner. The company aims to integrate the diverse perspectives coming from international students with the domestic and other international students along with assisting them in adapting and growing within the new environment.

It has been understood that international students who will complete the QC-GSSP will continue their undergraduate or graduate degree studies at Queens College. The report read that in addition to recruiting international students to attend the QC-GSSP, Navitas will also register eligible international students for direct entry into degree programs of Queens College.

However, the success of the program depends on several variables including the number of student registration for QC-GSSP, the quality of student outcomes and experience, the attractiveness of Queens College’s location and ranking to international student and the US regulatory laws.

Queens College Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Elizabeth Hendrey said: “The college is eager to work together to increase the global perspective of its campus community and provide students worldwide with greater access to a high-quality Queens College education.”

Mr Buckingham further reaffirmed the Navitas’ commitment to supporting the internationalisation goals of its US university partners, now including Queens College, as it continues to see significant opportunities for growth in and demand for international education in the United States.
