About us

Kaplan International Colleges (KIC) is a leading provider of UK university preparation courses for international students.

We run International Colleges in partnership with a number of high-ranking UK universities, providing students with the study skills, subject knowledge and English language ability needed to progress to an undergraduate or postgraduate degree. Our courses provide guaranteed routes to over 1,000 degrees at our partner universities, subject to the student successfully completing their preparation course to the required level.

The majority of our colleges are located on-campus, giving our students a smooth introduction to life at the partner university before beginning their degree. This generally includes access to the same facilities and resources enjoyed by students enrolled at the university. Our colleges run Foundation Certificate, International Year One and Pre-Master’s courses that prepare students for progression to a bachelor’s or master’s degree at a UK university. We also run a Pre-Doctorate course at KIC London to help international students gain entry to a doctorate degree at one of our selected partner universities.

Dedicated student services teams and experienced teaching staff are present at every college to make sure that all our international students receive the best possible entrance to UK higher education. Students are taught in small classes that encourage discussion and collaboration, while those who require extra help with their English receive  additional English language tuition. Each student is also assigned a learning support tutor  who monitors their academic progress throughout their course.

KIC currently runs international colleges in partnership with the following universities in England and Scotland:

KIC also runs English language programs across 42 language schools in England, Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Malta. KIC is part of Kaplan, Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of lifelong education, owned by Graham Holdings Company.
