Letter: No relation

Further to your article "Americans 'misled on Cambridge study visits' " (11 August), INSTEP has not and does not claim a relationship with the University, even though students are taught by academics holding teaching posts there. The picture of Warkworth House is misleading. No INSTEP students are now housed there, nor is it part of the Institute for Study Abroad, Butler University, whose UK office is in London.

The ISA, Indianapolis, is a respected organisation which recruits some of the students to INSTEP's 12-week semesters and arranges credit transfer to the students' American universities. The brochure referred to in your article was not published by INSTEP but by ISA and included its programmes in Oxford, where some formalised links exist with certain colleges.
