UWE Bristol is working with M Square Media to establish its in-country presence, including a dedicated team to manage agent relationships and admission processes.
“We want people to come and say they had the best experience studying at the university and the UK”
“We are looking for balance in quality and quantity in our student recruitment,” said Ray Priest, professor and international director for the Asia Pacific at UWE Bristol.
“We want people to come and say they had the best experience studying at the university and the UK, and talk to their family and friends in India about it,” he added.
Agent networking summits UWE Bristol led in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Kochi in India, and Kathmandu in Nepal throughout February each attracted 80 to 100 agents assisting students to attain their study-abroad goals.
The institution also anticipates benefits from the UK’s upcoming post-study work visa, which will take effect for all international students starting their studies in autumn 2020 or later.
The partnership represents a big step for MSM coming into the UK market, according to the company which partners with 40 higher education institutions in Canada, the US, UK, Australia, and other key markets.
MSM is also affiliated with over 4,500 education agents around the globe.
“We are excited to replicate MSM’s success with Canadian colleges and universities to this part of the world, and bridge the gap between highly qualified Indian students and UK institutions,” added Sanjay Laul, CEO and founder of MSM.
