End-to-End Aspiring Student Experience

Learn more about the future student journey and how it intersects with you!

Awareness
How do students become aware of study options for the first time? The role of marketing communications at this stage is vital; this is "push and pull" at its best; students are reached directly using paid marketing or are attracted by referees, influencers or organically
Consideration
Future student's decision-making process commonly includes three components: location (country, state and city to study), education provider (quality, rankings, price, etc.) and course (intended level of study, graduate outcomes, etc.).
Assessment
Beyond rankings, graduate outcomes and how influencers (parents, agents, friends) affect decisions, not only "profession", but other components should be part of the mix that help students choosing what to study; these include passion, vocation and mission.
Expression of interest
At this stage, students want more information, the more information the student provides, the best it will be the answer.
Counselling
In this critical stage, a peer-to-peer connection between a student and a relevant person, i.e. agent counsellor, staff member or even student ambassador is what makes the difference and alters the future student journey.
Assertion
Following student's counselling, communication and clarity about their study options, managing the student information along with providing quality information about the intended course or provider via quotes is part of a proper CRM execution.
Application
This is the climax in a journey that has a beginning, a middle, and an end. At this point, online applications are a must, long gone are the days of paper or PDF applications; the future of this stage is about machine learning and document verification.
Assessment
Most applications tend to be incomplete and missing documentation to fully meet entry requirements. At this stage, even academic staff may need to get involved in assessing applications. There is definitely more than meets the eye in this stage; multiple variables take place for the process to be seamless, factors include demand, course, nationality and entry requirements, among others.
Admission
At this stage, students are either admitted or rejected, if admitted, offers issued can be unconditional, conditional or packaged with other courses. This is the legal document that defines the contractual relationship between a student and an education provider. The process that takes place for this document to be issued can make a world of difference for both the student and the university or college.
Acceptance
It is very reasonable for students to hold in their hands more than one letter of offer, the average is three, and as application systems become more comfortable and faster to use, that number will increase. The process of accepting involves the payment of fees, including tuition and health insurance, typically. We have partnered with CohortGo to do this online.
Visa
This is a step we will argue students should take ownership the most, education agents assist with many applications and migration agents also with a portion. A student visa is a process that is managed by governments, some better than others. The main reason for students to rely on third parties to help with visa application is fear of rejection.
Enrolment
This is the last stage of the aspiring student journey, and the beginning of one of the best experiences students will ever have. Many areas to consider, from accommodation to transportation.

How to Write a Statement of Purpose for an Education Provider
Statement of Purpose (SOP) is a straightforward document that some education providers require international students to write as part of their application processes. Its purpose is to provide education provider departments with your personal statement on why you should be issued an offer for the course you’ve applied to.
9
A letter of offer should not be a speeding ticket
To stay on the front foot post-offer we recommend three marketing “Musts”: (1) Act rather than wait during the post-offer phase of the purchasing cycle, (2) Position the offer as the peak of your campaign, rather than its conclusion and (3) Employ off-campus incentives over financial concession to promote acceptance

Key factors to consider when searching for accommodation as an international student
