Some of the things we’ll need from you are program details, start dates, descriptions, and fees, which you may provide in the form of spreadsheets that we can upload on a regular basis. Our friendly sales team and account executives will walk you through the portal and help you explore how it can work for your institution.
Get the pulse of agents and their need for automation and intuitive online recruitment
The results of two independent surveys we conducted in June 2020 and January 2021 among agents — a vital source of on-the-ground intelligence about how the pandemic is affecting international recruitment across global markets — reflect both weariness and optimism:
84% of agents reported income losses as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Challenges in Online Recruitment
“The key challenges highlighted in the survey included access to technology and internet, a lack of a central platform to process applications efficiently and manage their businesses, and access to marketing materials.” (The PIE, in its feature of the January 2021 report – access here)
Relationship with Institutions
Asked what could be improved in their institution-related affairs, 36.5% of respondents pointed to online marketing materials, followed by number of university partnerships (35.5%), level of communication (29.9%) and student counselling (20.3%).
We are your bridge to the world’s high-performing agents and next generation of international students.
