What role do education agents play in your international student recruitment strategy?

Education agents are pivotal in recruiting international students for OIS.

OIS is known for being student centric. We want the student journey to be as transparent as possible and to give the students the greatest chance of success. Both of these aims are only possible with strong relationships with agents. We want our students and parents to feel taken care of at all times – they should feel that we and our agents are partners within the same organisation.  

What do you look for in new education agent partners?

We are known to be a “Great Place to Work”. We want our agents to be an integral part of the school community. Someone who is committed to build valuable, long term relationships both with OIS and the parent-student community. We believe selecting the right school education for their children is the most important decision a parent would make. And we want our agents to help them make the right choice. 

How do you work with your education agent partners?

Our agents are dear to us and we ensure they are well trained/aware of the offerings and values of OIS. They would work with a single point of contact, who has direct connect with Senior Leaders of the school, to ensure quick action on the student applications.
