Towson University expands efforts to draw more students from around the world


NEW DELHI , Dec. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Towson University announces today that it has appointed Study Group as its new global education partner to recruit international students and support them through the admissions process directly to undergraduate and graduate programs.

A Carnegie Community Engaged Campus established over 150 years ago in the state of Maryland and selected as the United States’ 15th-best Master’s University by Washington Monthly, Towson University offers a broad portfolio of programs in STEM, healthcare, business and the arts – with flexible admissions criteria as well as competitive post-graduation tuition fees for high-demand programs. The Wall Street Journal 2023 College Rankings placed the university at No. 1 among all public universities in Maryland – second to only Johns Hopkins among all universities, public or private, in the state – and at No. 50 among public universities nationwide.

With its enviable location in the suburbs of Baltimore close to Washington D.C. and with easy access to Philadelphia and New York City, the university connects students with significant research, internship and employment opportunities within a region that is home to a large international community. The university also acts as a community hub for accelerating entrepreneurship via the StarTUp at the Armory, named North America’s top university economic development initiative by the University Economic Development Association.

“We are excited to work collaboratively with Study Group to welcome and nurture talented students from around the world within our thriving community,” says Towson University President Dr. Mark Ginsberg. “We are proud to be recognized nationally as a leader in academic and inclusive excellence, as we are very well placed as an anchor institution in the Greater Baltimore region to help students develop the skills to become leaders in the global workforce.”

The university has a longstanding commitment to creating a multicultural campus and is focused on developing leadership for the public good – ambitions that are aligned with our vision of a better world through education. We look forward to bringing our care and expertise to the table so that international students can realise their education and career ambitions with the support of this esteemed institution. This represents yet another opportunity to widen student access to global education within North America, a region to which we are deeply committed.” 

Study Group Chief Partnerships Officer July Behl added: “Study Group is delighted to partner with Towson University to open up its outstanding higher education programs in the greater Washington D.C.Baltimore area to international students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

This partnership will help students to pursue their educational and career goals in one of the most exciting regions in the US, and as part of a community keen to support their ambitions in line with the university’s own educational strategy.”
