By working with a network of global affiliates that can also direct bookings to a “white label” version of the same website, Charlie Bryson, Director of WSS, is also aiming to expand the marketplace and enable new organisations or individuals to act as an agency and receive commission on bookings placed via the portal.
WSS has listings on its site now for all members of English UK and English Australia.

“We felt that QE and English Australia had a great portfolio of schools and offered that extra reassurance to students just like English UK [whom we have worked with since 2006],” said Bryson. “We respect all three organisations equally and so wanted to include all their members.”
He said he wanted to widen the course listings on the site in the future and expand his affiliate network, which mainly comprises international student graduates at present who have returned to their home countries. “By us providing [affilliates] with a site and doing the booking, it means really anyone with contact to international students can work as an agent,” said Bryson.
“You can see our partners are getting their own sites,” said Bryson. “If you click on the Saudi flag at the top of our site, it takers you to a separate url. The database is the same, as is the look and feel; the only difference is that the partners are the first port of call for the students and the partners share equally in the revenue generated from them.”
