Institutions are searching for quality and efficiency. These challenges were built for technological solutions.
Increased transparency, choice and personalisation for students
Every year, many students aspire to pursue their higher education overseas. With the help of modern technology, students from all over the world can find the needed information about schools, programs and requirements, apply and get accepted to the best universities and colleges in the country of their choice.
This era of transparency and ease of use is no longer a nice to have, but a necessity for students and parents. Access to information is only the start. How can technology improve student outcomes?
Social media platforms are an easy example of other technology that can be leveraged to connect with current students and alumni who are able to share their top tips. This can be helpful for future students and makes their entire study abroad process more efficient and enjoyable.
On education technology platforms like our own, numerous data points are analysed using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to share the best programs and schools that fit their credentials, background and goals.
“Institutions are searching for quality and efficiency”
Our technology has the ability to enable students to find the right programs and ensure that they are connected with institutions that best suit their goals, skill sets and budgets. Insights about the entire application and recruitment process can be shared not only with students, but with universities and colleges as well.
Our platform is helpful for students, recruitment partners and institutions when they are deciphering what requirements are necessary for program applications in different countries.
Improved efficiency for students and schools
The recruitment process for universities and colleges is a time-consuming and critical process at every institution. They typically manage a large number of student applications every year and might not have the adequate resources and staff to efficiently manage it. Institutions are leaning into new technology and tools to help them weave through applications so they can identify individuals who are more likely to be a great match for their institution.
Student applications are automatically vetted through this technology allowing them to concentrate solely on those who meet the criteria. As a result, institutions have been able to increase quality and efficiency for students as well as their own processes.
“Technology is not here to replace, it’s here to amplify the student experience”
Technology is critical for not only improving the student journey for students, but it’s also critical to help countries retain and attract talented applicants and build innovation throughout the community.
Using cutting-edge technology has allowed the entire international education sector to become more efficient. More importantly, students have greater access to information to make their decisions and achieve their goals. And, student success is and should always be the number one priority.
Technology is not here to replace, it’s here to amplify the student experience and support the higher education institutions in helping them recruit the best students that will succeed in their environment.
