Kaplan International Pathways is set to open a new college facility in Liverpool by September 2019.

The Liverpool International College already prepares more than 800 international students each year for degree programs at the city's universities. The new college building will be able to house up to 900 students and is located in the Knowledge Quarter in Liverpool's Paddington Village.

The £35m facility comes in the same year as the 10-year anniversary of partnerships between the company and two Russel Group universities, namely the University of Liverpool and the University of Glasgow.

The new three-storey facility will continue its English language training and courses in academic skills and key subject knowledge.

The new site will also contain a cafe and study areas, and students will continue to have access to university facilities.

Commenting the new facilities, Janet Beer, vice-chancellor at the University of Liverpool said: "LIC has helped the University, and Liverpool as a city, to become much sought-after by students from all over the world. And I have no doubt that a further 15 years of partnership and a fantastic new College building will continue this trend".

"Global outlook is a significant and distinctive part of the ethos of our University, to which our 10-year partnership with Kaplan and the establishment of Liverpool International College have made a hugely successful contribution."
