Branch Campuses

Building new higher education hubs
 

 

Branch campuses of established institutions in overseas locations enable students to study in a different place, but to a home academic system and standards. They have been effective in raising the quality of the higher education offer in markets such as Dubai, helping establishing them as important regional education hubs.

In future we may expect to see universities from countries such as China setting up branches in established student cities such as London, Paris and New York. By offering students this opportunity to undertake part of their study overseas, without leaving their home institution, they will be more likely to attract affluent students who might otherwise study abroad.

Already, the Aga Khan University (International) is nearing completion at Kings Cross in London and will house its students in Victoria Hall-operated accommodation. We expect other similar centres to follow.
