The Global Gateway is designed to maximise enrolment outcomes for universities, and its AI-driven data-mining TNE Matchmaker tool compiles courses across South Asia and Southeast Asia to locate “best-fit” prospective university partners in real-time.

With regularly updated data, the gateway will reduce “what has traditionally been a time-consuming and resource-intensive undertaking”, the company said.

“At Sannam S4, we believe we need to innovate in order to excel,” said Lakshmi Iyer, executive director, Education, at Sannam S4.

“Through Global Gateway, our in-house team of seasoned experts can now resolve existing TNE challenges while scoping new markets for opportunities and, in that process, help drive sustainable success for our esteemed partners.”

Estimates suggest that more than one million students will be looking to access TNE programs in South and Southeast Asia by 2025, Sannam S4 highlighted.

Additionally, demand for flexible delivery models as well as alternative study destinations have all contributed to the rise of TNE, it said.

“With TNE now fully mainstream, we remain at its cutting edge while leveraging our knowledge and experience”

“Sannam S4 has been at the forefront of TNE for many years, advising dozens of institutions on their strategies and brokering many successful arrangements, so we are ready to take what we do to the next level,” said Michael Bartlett, global managing director, Education, at Sannam S4.

“With TNE now fully mainstream, we remain at its cutting edge while leveraging our knowledge and experience, helping universities embed or optimise a crucial TNE element in their overall international strategies.”

Along with bespoke consultancy, also included in the portfolio of TNE solutions is a subscription service to develop partnerships in a variety of markets, tax and revenue compliance and regulatory issue support, and on-the-ground partnership management support.

It also features an in person wrap-around student services to complement universities’ online learning environments and flexible study hubs for students studying remotely.

Finally, the PACE suite of digital recruitment-related solutions aims to support demand generation and conversion.

It also launched the UK-China Institutional Partnership Program in May, in partnership with the China Center for International Educational Exchange, bringing together 45 Chinese and nine UK universities.

Additionally, the UK’s University of Portsmouth and Manipal International University in Malaysia signed a new agreement to allow BSc in Computer Science students study at MIU for two years before progressing to Portsmouth via the Global Gateway Partnerships program – South East Asia.

The partnership “showcases the impact of Sannam S4 expertise streamlining the steps to collaboration for both parties with quality and due diligence a priority at every step of the process”, said Delia Heneghan, the company’s vice president, Global Education Practice.

“Demand generation is built into our GGP model, a unique feature that ensures robust recruitment into partnership programs that deliver growth for both parties and a top quality experience for the students.”

  1. This “new” program seems to mimic the menu of services currently offered to higher education institutions by government agencies like AusTrade, Global Affairs Canada, and the U.S. Department of Commerce, etc. What is Sannam S4 offering that is not already available to higher education institutions looking to expand their global footprint?

    • Hello Rachel

      Thanks for the question. The services on their own are not unique, the TNE Matchmaker is unique as it is about trying to help institutions find relevant matches based on subjects. All the Government agencies you have listed here do extend help in finding matches, where a professional services firm can add value is by ensuring that the partnership is sustainable and has longevity wherever possible.
