A satellite campus is a branch of a university located in a different country, state or area from where the main campus of the institution is situated.
Multi-campus universities are attractive to international students for many reasons, from the range of courses they offer to the international atmosphere and the chance to gain credentials from a globally recognised institution, often at a more affordable rate.
