Marymount California University Announces Partnership with Kings Colleges, UK

A partnership to grow international student enrollment at Marymount California University’s campuses has been announced with Kings Pathways, a division of Kings Colleges based in the United Kingdom. Kings Pathways offers international students access to study at a US university. The first students are expected to enroll in the fall 2013

“Marymount is an ideal university setting for an international student who wants to attend classes in our coastal university locations, but who will also enjoy the wealth of learning opportunities afforded by being located in Los Angeles,” said Marymount President Michael Brophy.

Bill Colvin, Director of Kings Pathways in the USA said, “We are delighted to announce our new partnership with such a highly-regarded and perfectly located institution as Marymount California University.”

Marymount California University is one of two Catholic, four-year coeducational colleges in Los Angeles County. With campuses along the picturesque coastline of Rancho Palos Verdes and in the vibrant community of San Pedro, Marymount College challenges its students to pursue lives of leadership and service. In the spirit of its founding order, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, the College strives to graduate students who embody the virtues of integrity, respect for human dignity and commitment to justice. Marymount offers M.S. degrees (pending WASC approval) in Community Psychology and in Leadership & Community Development; B.A. degrees in Business, Liberal Arts, Media Studies and Psychology; and A.A. degrees in a variety of fields

Kings Colleges was established in 1957. Since then, tens of thousands of international students have enrolled. In 1966 Kings opened its London college in Beckenham, and in 1986 Kings Oxford was added to our group of colleges. Over the years, Kings has been a pioneer in international education programs. In the 1970s, Kings was one of the very first colleges to welcome significant numbers of students from China and Asia. In 2008, Robert Watts sold Kings Colleges to Prime Education. In its sixth decade of change and development, one thing has remained consistent – its students receive a warm welcome, outstanding teaching, an active social life and a complete learning experience.
