Global leaders in providing private pathway courses

Study Group is a top private pathway provider, offering courses to international students to prepare them for academic success. We specialise in offering English language courses, as well as subject-specific pathways that are designed to give you an inspiring start to your studying abroad experience.


In 2018, Study Group helped 30,000 students from 142 countries to achieve their goals and begin a degree in a new country. Our Leeds International Study Centre is located at the world-famous Global East Stand, Emerald Headingley Stadium, and is just a short bus journey from Leeds city centre. Here, you will become a part of University life from your very first day – living with other international students, learning the British education system from expert teachers, and getting familiar with UK culture. Upon successfully completing your course at the International Study Centre, you will progress directly to study at the University of Leeds.

Study Group is the first private pathway provider to be accepted on to the Office for Students (OfS) Register of English higher education providers. This means we meet the OfS requirements for course quality, academic standards, student support, student protection. From 1st August 2019, International Study Centre students will be able to access the same range of benefits as students attending other UK public universities.
