Education agents used by ‘the overwhelming majority’ of Australia’s international students

Over the years, Australia has cemented its position as one of the hottest destinations for international students. However, the country’s sandy beaches, countless attractions, and world-class universities can’t claim all the credit for its overseas popularity. An entirely different channel continues to be instrumental in Australia’s success: education agents.

According to the latest survey1, 86% of Australia’s international students have used an education agent to help with their application and enrollment decisions. And, perhaps more importantly, 92% said they had a positive agent experience1.

With the influence of education agents soaring, those universities without commercial partnerships look set to miss out on international admissions. They’re pinning their enrollment hopes on the 14% of students who navigate the study abroad process entirely independently - a risky move.

If you want to future-proof your recruitment strategy and stand out, it’s time to start cultivating an agent partnership. Luckily, Studee is the risk-free recruitment solution you’ve been looking for.

Could education agents soften the Covid-19 blow?

Unsurprisingly, Australia’s higher education sector was “significantly affected” by the pandemic1. International enrollments at Australian universities fell by 7%, while overall satisfaction levels amongst overseas students tumbled from 75% to just 63%1. So, getting the international student experience back on track couldn’t be more important.

The role of education agents, like Studee, has never been more crucial. In a time of great uncertainty, we help to simplify the application and enrollment process for the student, so they can still achieve their dream of studying abroad.
