PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State University (PSU) has signed an agreement with United Education and Investments (UEI) to open an office in Middle Section Chengdu, Sichuan, China. UEI is an international consultancy engaged in screening and recruiting prospective Chinese students and will work on behalf of PSU.

United Education and Investments will serve as PSU’s headquarters for all China and Asia recruitment. This partnership will significantly expand the University’s international recruitment and strengthen the 18 additional formal international partnerships developed through the PSU Admission Office over the past year and a half. According to PSU Coordinator for International Recruitment Dick Hage, United Education Investments professionals have offices in both the U.S. and China, and more than a century of combined experience of dedicated commitment to their students. “They are also unique among our partners by establishing a PSU office in Chengdu, China.”

UEI is advancing plans for the development of PSU partnerships with Chinese high schools and universities using long-term (“integrated”) or short-term (“intensive”) U.S. higher education preparation programs. These include programs such as 2+2, 3+1 and other joint-degree programs where students begin their studies at one university and finish at another, providing additional flexibility for the student to choose the right program. PSU President Sara Jayne Steen said the partnership is another example of Plymouth State’s vibrant global education program.

“Our Chinese students have been extraordinary students and leaders,” Steen said. “We look forward to our partnership with UEI’s professional team members, who share our values about student success.”

In the current academic year, international students from 27 countries are studying at Plymouth State University. The University recently established a Global Education Office to better serve international students and to coordinate international opportunities for domestic students.
