Acquisition of Experience English Limited

27 September 2017

Barlow Robbins’ Corporate and Commercial team has advised BSC Group Limited on its acquisition of Experience English Limited from The Real Experience Group (formerly Kinlay Group), its Irish parent, for an undisclosed sum.

The Real Experience Group operates a range of specialist educational travel brands including USIT, a well-known Irish provider of internships, volunteer projects and holidays for students and youth travellers and i-to-i, a leading provider of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) courses around the World.

Experience English and its subsidiaries operate four premium English language training schools in England and Scotland. BSC Group is wholly owned by Michael Tunney. Its acquisition of Experience English is intended to enable the Experience English group of companies to expand its operation independently of The Real Experience Group by merging with British Study Centres, a complementary business also owned by BSC Group.

The transaction was led by Mark Lucas (Partner) with assistance from Ian McDonald (Senior Associate) and Matthew Devine (Solicitor).

Mark Lucas commented “We are delighted to have assisted Michael Tunney and the BSC Group in the acquisition of Experience English. This acquisition will allow Experience English and its management team to focus on the growth of its language schools in England and Scotland.”
