About us

InterGreat Education Group was founded in 2008 to assist students in pursuit of an international education. Since then, InterGreat has developed an ecosystem with transnational education at its core, spanning from international school management, HE partnership programmes and HE local delivery to a portfolio of technology-based online initiatives: K12 English, assessments, exam prep tuition and admissions application systems.

Our founder

Colin Chen, InterGreat's founder, came to the UK in 2004 to study for an MBA after having worked as an orthopaedic surgeon in China. Having experienced the benefits of an overseas education and some of the difficulties in the process, he decided to establish a company to assist students in pursuit of an international education

What's in a name?

Due to the rapid growth of the business both in scale and areas of expertise, in 2017 we changed our company name to InterGreat Education Group to recognise our transition to a holistic international education service provider.

Integrating global resources and technology with education is our key aim, so InterGreat, formed from the words International and Great Britain seemed like a perfect fit.
