The World is our Classroom
The International Study Center took up residence in the beautiful loft-like offices and classrooms on the ground floor of Robinson Hall in January 2018. The previously unfinished space received major renovations in summer 2012.
International Study Center is a partnership with Study Group, the university’s international student recruitment partner. Study Group provides its partners with global marketing and recruitment services, matching well-prepared international students with the University that can best satisfy their scholarly ambitions.
The International Study Center at Oglethorpe University provides an International Year to improve English whilst working towards the second year of a degree.
Study Group further prepares international students to be successful through a rigorous pathway program upon their arrival. Inside the International Study Center at Oglethorpe University, students will take intensive English for academic purposes and acculturation courses, as well as general studies courses, as part of their first year of study (the International Year). This sheltered environment provides them the tools to be successful in their studies, graduate, and achieve their professional aspirations.
“As part of our globalization strategy, choosing the right pathway partner was important. We are excited to be working with Study Group, who was chosen for their managed growth approach and keen global expertise that will help us achieve the international aspects of our long-range plan.” – Oglethorpe University President Dr. Lawrence Schall
