The two organisations joined together following reports that new international student enrolments in the US declined by 6.6% last year, corroborating findings from 2017 and continuing a trend first observed in the 2015/16 academic year.
“This partnership comes at a time where international interest in US study abroad opportunities has declined”
STA Travel is Study in the USA’s first exclusive travel partner, and through the collaboration, international students will have access to new content surrounding travel in the US.
The partnership will also work to facilitate further industry reach for both STA Travel and Study in the USA in the educational travel space.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Study in the USA to provide further resources for international students interested in studying in the United States,” said Christine Sutton, senior vice president, STA Travel.
“This partnership comes at a time where international interest in US study abroad opportunities has declined significantly.
Working together will allow STA Travel and Study in the USA to reach more prospective students, help students feel welcomed and overall make studying in the United States a more desirable option,” Sutton added.
