London, 5 February 2018 – The Language Gallery (TLG) is proud to announce a new partnership with De Montfort University (DMU), which will help the school to expand its University Pathway Programme (UPP).
Thanks to this collaboration, TLG students participating in the UPP who then decide to apply to De Montfort for a degree won’t need to take the IELTS test or any other external English language exam.
De Montfort, a public university in Leicester, is now the second UK higher education institution to partner with TLG on this programme. This collaboration follows a similar agreement with Bangor University, which was signed in 2016.
“Studying abroad plays a vital role for young people looking to step into the global market. Learning in a different country, approaching its language and culture, can help them gain the skills they need to work anywhere in the world,” said Simon Power, Managing Director at The Language Gallery.
“Working with important institutions such as Bangor and De Montfort, we can help students from different countries to make the most of their learning experience and access quality education in the UK,” he added.
The University Pathway Programme (UPP) is a pre-sessional course designed for international students who are planning to study for a degree at a university abroad and need to meet the language requirements of their conditional offer.
TLG has also recently partnered with Toronto School of Management (TSoM) to run the programme in Toronto, and is currently offering the UPP in Berlin and Hannover.
