What LEC does

LEC’s main business is to advise institutions on how to increase their global impact. World class education is increasingly shaped by international opportunities and this is the focus of what we do:

We will help you to grow your international profile by

  • Developing strategic and mutually beneficial international partnerships that work for you
  • Enabling you to attract more high-quality international students
  • Achieving increased diversity in your international students
  • Launching your own international programmes and alumni groups
  • Offering outbound international experiences to your domestic students
  • Devising courses that will broaden your students’ experience and give them the best possible preparation for post-graduation employment and successful careers and lives

How LEC does it

  • At LEC we provide both strategic support and hands-on project delivery to ensure change and growth is implemented successfully
  • We will travel extensively with the aim of identifying institutions in Asia that are seeking to place their students in high-quality educational establishments in Europe
  • We will travel worldwide in order to represent institutions that are seeking to place their students internationally
  • We will access our extensive international network of partner schools and universities to facilitate reciprocal exchanges at institutional, faculty and student levels on behalf of globally minded institutions
  • We will work closely with a broad range of schools and universities that are seeking to create summer school education to understand the developments in that market as well as the gaps
  • We will stay close to sources of scholarship funding, to understand clearly what schools and universities need to demonstrate in order to access funding and to identify new sources of funding


Over the course of his career the founder of LEC, Greg Lewis, has led projects on three continents and worked closely with high ranking institutions globally:

Europe: Exeter College at the University of Oxford, Pembroke and King’s Colleges at the University of Cambridge, and the Cambridge Law Studio.
USA/Canada: Yale, Harvard, the University of California, Johns Hopkins University, Brigham Young University, the American University (Washington DC), the National Intelligence University, and the University of British Columbia.
Asia: Hong Kong University, Chinese and City Universities (Hong Kong), Peking, Fudan, and Nanjing Universities (China), the National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University and the Singapore Institute of Management; and CB Richard Ellis (Thailand).

Greg was awarded BA (Hons) and MA degrees from the School of Oriental and African Studies in the University of London, and trained as a lawyer in London before working as a Training Manager at CB Richard Ellis in Thailand. During his career at Pembroke (Cambridge), Greg worked his way up from summer programme lecturer to Deputy Director and Programme Director. Greg travels frequently to the US, China, Hong Kong, and Singapore on business.

  • Greg is a master of this field, has the rare ability to address simultaneously both the micro- and the macro-level of detail, is meticulous and highly driven.

    Ian Shields, OBE MPhil MA FRAeS - Lecturer at University of Cambridge (2010-2014).

  • Greg was hugely popular with students and faculty highly skilled when it comes to educational administration, and has a personal enthusiasm for creating dynamic educational environments.

    Damien Freeman - Visiting Fellow at PM Glynn Institute, Australian Catholic University.

  • Greg has a forensic understanding of the global study abroad market and an eye for opportunity, and so proved highly skilled at taking this new programme to market.

  • Greg has a profound understanding of summer programme development from broader strategy to detailed programme design …an innovative individual with drive and initiative, who has an excellent understanding of institutional collaboration in higher education.

  • Greg differentiated himself by virtue of the care, time and energy he invested in helping his students achieve their full potential. My time in Cambridge with Greg inspired me and gave me a vision of academia that propelled me towards my doctorate at UCLA and lectureship at Stanford.
