Language Study Centres acquired by Bayswater Education
Bayswater Education has signalled its intention to expand its operations with the acquisition of Language Study Centres (LSC), STS Education’s UK arm for language learning.
Bayswater Education, a UK based educational travel company, has acquired Language Study Centres (LSC), which hosts over 4000 students a year for innovative courses in e- gaming and leadership all over the south of the UK.
With the acquisition of Language Study Centres (LSC), Bayswater Education has added LSC’s junior summer camp to its portfolio.
Bayswater gains access to Language Study Centres campuses
The acquisition will pave the way for Bayswater to operate in new locations with new courses and with a more experienced network of international partners.
Bayswater is hoping to use the experience of LSC to continue to expand and avail new business opportunities.
According to the deal, LSC will retain its brand and will keep on offering high-quality study programmes along with social and cultural programmes for young foreign students at multiple centres around the country.
Furthermore, STS Education will still collaborate with LSC and Bayswater to continue to offer various language travel products.
Sector will ‘benefit greatly’ from this acquisition
Stephan Roussounis, Managing Director of Bayswater Education, when talking about the acquisition, said: “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with LSC. This will greatly expand our offering and strengthen our position within the growing under-18 language travel market.
“By adding LSC’s experience, knowledge and vast international network, we will be able to diversify geographically, broaden our portfolio, and ultimately strengthen our core business. Most importantly, we will be able to reach and provide for a greater number of young international students.”
John Cedergårdh, CEO of STS Education, said that he believes both organisations will benefit greatly from this acquisition and the move will help the education travel industry to grow and prosper.
