The Awards recognize outstanding achievements amongst commercial education providers.

Study Group’s outstanding responsiveness to the needs of university partners and students has enabled them to secure the top place in the prestigious Pathway Company of the Year category.

Responding to the award, Chief Executive Emma Lancaster said, “We are delighted that Education Investor has acknowledged the achievement of Study Group during a most challenging time for international education globally. The impact of the pandemic and related travel restrictions has marked a rapid development in how we think about and deliver education globally, but I am extremely proud that my colleagues have risen to this challenge in such an impressive way.

“By putting the needs of students and our university partners to the fore, we have continued our strategy of providing high-quality, personalized and blended learning, which enables outstanding levels of progression to higher education and employment and satisfaction from our students. We have also developed new models of in-country learning, teaching, assessment and study support that will be an integral aspect of international education beyond COVID-19. In that sense we have used this testing period as an opportunity to encourage learning and innovation.”
