Leading visa consultancy agency Expo Visa Services (EVS) recently introduced a highly individualized, innovative, and scalable student recruitment platform called Global Study Partners (GSP) after becoming the first channel partner for GSP in Sri Lanka. The platform provides guidance — from application to enrolment — to prospective students and those wishing to migrate and study abroad. EVS will join an ecosystem of education agents, travel agents, schools, and other entities that GSP has identified as a source of international student recruitment and enrolment.
A free service, GSP offers a unique online two-sided EdTech marketplace, linking millions of students through their agents and channels to over 35,000 courses and 500 institutions globally. The gamut of courses accessible through GSP vary from Pathway Programs to Vocational Training, Private Higher Education and University. The platform will also provide post-study work visa opportunities, offering overseas graduates from Sri Lanka the option to apply for the right to stay on for job experience at the end of their university courses.
“While the global pandemic has dampened hopes of prospective students worldwide, we here at EVS have been working to help students surpass their preliminary doubts and fears into expanding their educational aspirations when choosing to pursue their higher and vocational education. The GSP facility helps students understand and assess the imperative decisions when choosing their place of study, preferred educational course, price range of the select mode of education, if the course is suitable to their career prospects and other key questions such as, if they can speak to someone locally in person or even compare courses,” said Chanaka Rajaratne, Head of EVS.
Through GSP, students may purchase additional products prior to their departure to their educational destination. These products include but are not limited to Compulsory Student Health Cover, Study Loans, Accommodation, Wi-Fi & Connectivity, Travel, and even extra tutoring. GSP is not only limited to the student’s educational prospects but also provides students with access to over 900 recruitment partners across the globe.
“The uniqueness of Global Study Partners is that it caters to transforms lives through education by providing access to expertise, platforms and services needed to empower students to study anywhere in the world. Such services are developed to put students at ease in a VUCA world such as ours. We encourage students to try out this free service and not to lose hope in fulfilling their vocational, educational and ultimately career prospects,” added Rajaratne.
