GREETINGS FROM YOUR BRAND NEW NAVITAS UK COLLEGE
Welcome to the first edition of the UNIC newsletter, which will be coming to you on a fortnightly basis to provide some handy updates and info about what’s been happening here at Navitas UK’s newest college. Please feel free to pass this on to your agent networks and do not hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you want to know more about or see featured in the next edition.
Our first intake is in September 2016 and applications are already pouring in from all corners of the globe, so thanks to each and every one of you who have been promoting UNIC in your regions. I’ve worked closely with many of you over the last few months as we’ve brought the college to market and I look forward to continuing that in the lead up to 1603 and beyond.
I joined UNIC because I believe we’ve got a product that can add some real value to the Navitas portfolio and can provide new and exciting options to a whole range of agents and students. We’ve got some fantastic courses at an unbelievably affordable price and in a truly wonderful location – it really is a unique offering and I am fully confident that your students will love everything about it.
