Cambridge Education Group signs French deal

Published 13/04/2024

Cambridge Education Group has partnered with Galileo Global Education in France on a new international foundation program in art and design.

The agreement will see France’s biggest design school, LISAA School of Art and Design, Atelier Chardon Savard, Istituto Marangoni, and IESA, all join the CEG portfolio.

The three-term foundation program at ONCAMPUS Paris will allow international students to develop their specialist skills before graduating to undergraduate degrees at the institutions.

The partnership has been established to accommodate growing demand, according to Brendan Webb, CEO for Commercial at Cambridge Education Group.

“The city needs no introduction as one of the world’s cultural and artistic superpowers, and we are so excited to be able to welcome the creative talent that Paris loves to nurture,” he said.

“The programs are the perfect springboard for the innovators of tomorrow looking for internships in high end global brands leading to a career in one of the world’s major fashion capitals.”

The Galileo Global Education group includes 54 schools with 91 campuses and academic collaborations in 13 countries.

“This partnership allows international students to pursue their studies in one of our many prestigious arts and design schools located in the heart of Paris,” added Didier Bouvet, International Director of Business Development at Galileo Global Education France.

“Together GGEF and ONCAMPUS are paving the way for boundless inspiration and cultural enrichment for our international students, transforming their dreams into masterpieces.”

The deal also includes renowned schools in Italy.

CEO of Galileo Global Education Italia, Donato Medici, added that the initiative aims to “cultivate a dynamic educational environment that transcends borders, offering students from diverse backgrounds unparalleled opportunities for growth and success in the fields of fashion, art, and design”.

The GGE Italia Group, which includes Istituto Marangoni, NABA and Domus Academy, will enrich the partnership “with their prestigious heritage and innovative approach”, he added.

The new course, set to launch in September 2024, expands ONCAMPUS Paris’s pre-existing offer, which covers Business, Economics, Finance and Management together with KEDGE Business School.

ONCAMPUS also offers an art and design portfolio in the UK, together with universities in Southampton, Reading, Loughborough and in London.

Earlier this year, Navitas also announced a 10-year partnership with French business school, ICN.

There has been movement in the pathway industry across Europe, with organisations such as Study Group discontinuing its business in the Netherlands going into 2023 and double down on its UK strength as the Dutch government has sought to introduce measures impacting the international student recruitment sector.
