International College Portsmouth celebrates 10th anniversary

International College Portsmouth (ICP) is celebrating its 10th anniversary next week and will celebrate the occasion by signing a new 10 year contract with the University of Portsmouth.

ICP is an Associate College of the University, embedded within the University campus, which offers international students undergraduate and postgraduate preparation courses for students before progressing to the University of Portsmouth.

The college has gone from strength to strength over the past 10 years and has seen over 2,500 students progress from the college to the University of Portsmouth. ICP currently has over 500 students from over 50 different countries.

ICP will be hosting their 10th anniversary celebration which will take place on Thursday 14 February at 3pm in St Andrews Court. A number of senior staff, students and alumni have been invited, many of whom have significantly contributed to the success of ICP over the years.

The signing of a new contract will also take place on the same day which secures another 10 year partnership between the ICP and the University.

Pete Venables, College Director of International College Portsmouth said: “I am delighted to be celebrating 10 years of ICP. The ongoing success of the College is a testament to the hard work of the Navitas and University staff who set the College up.

“The teams on all sides of the partnership who continue to work hard to create a fantastic student experience and great student outcomes; and the students themselves, who continue to surprise and impress us each year with their dedication and hard work towards their goals, and their passion and involvement in enhancing the College for all.

“This feels like a partnership done right, and I look forward to another 10 years’ success.”

The ICP is part of the global Navitas Group, an internationally recognised education provider with the knowledge and resources of staff in more than 120 colleges and campuses worldwide.
