New partner for LSBF

The London School of Business & Finance (LSBF) Group has announced a ‘strategic partnership’ with higher education provider St Patrick’s International College. 
 
Under the agreement the independent London-based college will become a member of the LSBF Group.
 
But St Patrick’s, formerly known as St Patrick’s School, will continue to operate as a separate entity.
 
And despite repeated requests for clarification, LSBF staff were unable to explain what membership of the group involved.
 
Raj Kumaran, director of education at St Patrick’s College, added: “Membership of the LSBF Group will enable us to draw on the strengths, and contribute to the further development, of one of the fastest growing private providers of professional training and vocationally focused education whilst preserving St Patrick's distinctive brand and ethos.”
 
Founded in 1803, St Patrick’s now teaches around 1,000 students. It offers diplomas and university degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, validated by universities including Middlesex and Sunderland.
 
LSBF Group is an international education group founded in 2003. Last month the group announced that it was to offer higher education programmes validated by London Metropolitan University.
