In an attempt to expand the international connections, the Education Centre of Australia, an international education group, has joined hands with London Metropolitan University.
Under the partnership, an ECA International College will be established at the North London Campus of the University. Focusing primarily on international students in the early stages. An International Foundation Programme and a Pre-Masters Programme will be offered at the College.
The Education Centre of Australia has also been in partnership with Australian Universities such as the University of Canberra, Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria University and Charles Sturt University.
The partnership is expected to help London Met through the international student recruitment abilities and their “expertise in campus management solutions”. The CEO of ECA, Gavin Dowling stated highlighted that the new partnership is a step forward in expanding their geographic footprint at the right time.
The partnership will provide students under ECA to access the “world-leading state-of-the-art facilities and teaching methodologies” of the London Met University.

He further assured that the ECA students will be received into a dynamic and welcoming environment, where the state-of-the-art facilities will be available for their benefit.
