Founders’ Message

On behalf of University Bridge, we would like to welcome you to our program.


UBridge is the marriage of the nation’s premier two-year colleges with an educational firm committed to enriching students’ lives through successful college transfers. Our unique, tailored academic experience offers guaranteed admissions to top universities in the United States.


UBridge’s guaranteed admissions offers stem from articulation agreements between our two-year colleges and a number of elite four-year colleges. These agreements are central to our ability to offer an ironclad admission guarantee.


The University Bridge program is an all-inclusive academic experience tailored to international students looking to study in the U.S. We focus on the specific academic and cultural needs of our students. No other program for international students looks after its students quite like UBridge. Every effort is taken to ensure the safety and success of our students.


Thank you for taking the time to review University Bridge. We look forward to seeing you next semester!
