Partnerships built for the long term

We create real partnerships that deliver value. Today we are in long-term partnership with 16 leading universities, caring for the needs of around 35,000 students, every term.

Our support helps our partners to upgrade, grow to meet demand, compete and improve the student experience. The UPP approach means that our interests and those of our partners are aligned.

Everything we do is possible because we work in partnership


Good partners are flexible, so we design our services so they can be too. As policy and student expectations change our partnerships have the capacity to be flexible too.


True partnership is not easy. Lasting partnerships require strategic insight, operational responsiveness and sometimes just human understanding.


As a good partner we have a responsibility to do what we say we will. Our interests and those of our investors are aligned with those of the university, and the continued success of our partners.
