ANU sells English language school to business group

The Australian National University has sold its preparatory college to a private equity business in a bid to attract more international students.

ANU College, which was part of a $35 million company owned by the Canberra-based university, is a “pathway” college running courses to help students improve English language skills and prepare for academic study. It was owned by ANU Enterprises, which also manufactures scientific instruments and operates a global research consultancy.

In a statement announcing the transfer of ownership to the Study Group, the ANU said there would be “no changes to staffing, the study courses or the campus location” and the college will retain its name. The company will formally take over the college on 29 November.
