October was a big month at Hotcourses Group. Following the announcement of our student recruitment partnership with IDP Education we have had a very positive response and are now only looking for a few more institutions to join a long list of universities for the launch of the new digital platforms in February 2018. In addition, we reached a significant milestone of counselling 500 students at our Indian Virtual Agency through to university enrolment.
We are very pleased to welcome on board universities from the UK, USA New Zealand, Canada and Australia who have signed to the end-to-end service, offering a seamless student journey from initial internet search through to enrolment. Universities that have recently joined include New Jersey Institute of Technology, RMIT, University of Adelaide, University of Technology Sydney, Edith Cowan University, University of Waikato, Victoria University, Kangan TAFE, Coventry University, University of Glasgow, University of Kent and Loughborough University.
The service launches to students in February with new Digital Content Platforms across Hotcourses’s 12 international facing sites, The Complete University Guide and IDP.com – reaching a global audience with annual traffic in excess of 67 million.
Institutions that still wish to be part of the global launch should move quickly to confirm their participation as availability is now becoming limited.
We are also pleased to announce that we have reached 500 enrolments through Hotcourses India’s virtual study abroad student counselling agency offering digital end-to-end support to students looking to study abroad. The agency is exclusively online and in reaching this milestone it further highlights the ever-growing importance of digital engagement on students’ journeys into university.
Hotcourses Group launched the virtual agency for Indian students in 2014. The agency provides personalised online counselling to students interested in pursuing their education abroad and our technology-based approach, wide range of free support services and partner agreements with universities means that we generate a response to applicants fast and exclusively within the digital environment.
