Professor Scott Fleming, Deputy Vice Chancellor, TLG; Rob Boast, Pro Vice-Chancellor, BGU; Boaz Arbel and Nitin Gupta, Portfolio Managing Directors, Global University Systems and Pranav Brahmbhatt, Managing Director, TLG, were present at the signing.

Professor Karen Stanton, Vice-Chancellor, BGU, says: “BGU is excited and proud to be working with The Language Gallery as its latest educational collaborative partner. Both institutions share the same visions and ambitions of extending transformative educational opportunities to learners less well represented in HE. TLG’s and BGU’s strong commitment to both widening participation and effective, high quality, student-focused education will ensure a confident foundation from which the partnership will grow and be successful.
“There is a strong alignment of both institutions’ learning, teaching and assessment approaches and practices, as well as student support policies. This provides both TLG and BGU with the mutual assurance that this partnership is built on transparency and understanding, which enables our prospective students to flourish.”
Bharat Vaswani, Transformation and Strategic Partnerships Director at Global University Systems, said: “This is truly a transformative time for TLG. The partnership will enable us to expand the Certificate of Higher Education provision beyond London to Birmingham and Nottingham.
