Arden University and Roots IVY International College (RIIC)/ICMS have welcomed their first intake of new students at the ICMS Lahore Campus.

Offering students in Pakistan the opportunity to earn a UK degree in subjects including computing and business, these programmes are the outcome of our exclusive partnership with the pioneering trans-national education provider. 

Students will make use of Arden’s popular and well-received blended learning platform, with in-person teaching taking place on Roots IVY’s campuses (initially with ICMS in Lahore, extending to Roots Ivy in Islamabad in November, and with plans in place to extend this to Lahore and Faisalabad early next year).  

The partnership marks the ongoing growth and commitment Arden University has towards its students globally, and expands on its six UK-based study centres and EU site in Berlin.

“This is Arden’s first international partnership, and we could not be more excited to work with the Roots IVY/ICMS teams to welcome and guide new students on the journey towards their dream career,” commented Debra Hinds, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Partnerships at Arden University. 

“Despite being on the other side of the globe, our students in Pakistan will have access to the same high-quality educational experience our students in the UK and Berlin do. They will have access to industry-led resources and insights via our iLearn platform and lecturers who have an invaluable level of knowledge in their respective fields.” 

The partnership represents a further commitment from Arden University to offering students – regardless of their background, location or current commitments and priorities – providing students around the world access to the type of internationally-recognised  vocational qualifications that can lead to success in the workplace.
