Description of the goods or services required

The University of Strathclyde wishes to develop a partnership with a suitably qualified and experienced organization to develop and deliver a suite of educational foundation programmes for international students intending to progress onto the University’s undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in the UK. The foundation programmes, commencing in September 2013, would provide both English language and subject tuition, using the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) criteria for that aspect.

The partner will provide an extensive international marketing network together with a delivery model to drive significant growth in student numbers. The University has a current planning target of 300 additional students by year three of the contract. The partner will also have experience of the distinguishing features of the Scottish Higher Education system. The University will retain overall responsibility for all academic matters.

While the primary activity of the partnership is the educational foundation programmes, the University may also wish to use the partnership to build capacity and capability in the development and delivery of flexible modes of learning and teaching for off-campus students.
