Our Story

Illustration Innovation

Where it all began.


It started from the belief that the U.K.'s busy working professionals needed access to quality online degrees at our leading Universities to prepare them for the future of work. We knew that a high level of service and support was required to enrol, study and graduate; and that the quality of the student experience had to improve significantly.

Our first partnership.


From humble beginnings in early 2014, we have grown considerably. With a small team of Keypathers, we launched our first online MBA programme with Aston University in 2017. We now have over 13 Keypathers and deliver six active programmes with two university partners, servicing thousands of students across the UK and around the world.

While a few things may have changed along the way, our unwavering commitment to our cause—education—hasn't. Never satisfied with the status quo, we're continually investing in our people, technology and data to enhance the student experience and extend the reach of our university partners.

The future.


Recent events have expedited the need to upskill or change careers, and to do so via online education. The majority of our people have been with us for three or more years, so we are ready to lead through this momentum. Our future, and the future of those who work and partner with us, is bright.
