Students from Sicily visited West Suffolk College to explore the possibility of studying there from September.
They tried a taster week of lectures and social events, as well as visitingBury St Edmunds and Cambridge.
Many of them are considering degree courses at UCS Bury St Edmunds on the West Suffolk College campus. Others are considering Access courses and Higher Level Apprenticeships.
Vice Principal Martyn Wagner said: “The Italian students were interested in a wide range of courses and liked the fact that we could help them gain work experience in UK industries as well as vocational training and degree courses.
“There was also a demand for courses in technical English to help students with their studies.”
Further taster courses are planned for European students later in the year.
