Univibes enters the US market: higher Ed consulting, services & solutions for mobile students
Globalization continues as new technologies have led to the international integration of local markets and businesses. To successfully compete in the global marketplace, companies need employees with cross-cultural competence and knowledge of foreign languages. Therefore, the number of U.S. citizens seeking for abroad educational programs keeps increasing. Responding to this trend, Admitad’s service, Univibes, enters the US market in order to provide American students with all the opportunities of foreign scholarships.
97% of study abroad students found employment within 12 months of graduation, while only 49% of college graduates found employment in the same period.
According to a survey conducted by The Institute for International Education of Students (IES), 95% of the surveyed students admitted that studying abroad served as a catalyst for increased maturity, 96% reported increased self-confidence, and 95% said it had a lasting impact on their worldview.
Univibes is an international community of advisors to bring education solutions for mobile students.
Admitad steps in with its own service Univibes providing bright minds in the region with services and assistance. The idea has been successfully tested in Europe: over the past year, around 1,200+ students have been advised and found their placements thanks to the team of professionals at Univibes. The students worldwide were enrolled into the top state universities of Europe, USA and Asia in various specialties, including medicine, architecture, design and engineering.
Earlier this year Univibes successfully entered the MENA market. The time has come to launch the service in the United States as well.
Top regions that hosted the largest number of mobile students from the United States over last year are as following:
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
A full support service with an active alumni network.
Throughout the academic journey, there are challenges that accompany every applicant from the very beginning: from selecting the right universities and scholarships, writing motivational letters, filling out admission forms and documents correctly, to finding the right insurance package and a safe place to stay. Government agencies rarely provide advice about these issues, resulting in an ever-increasing need for tailored assisting services for those pursuing academic careers.
Univibes provides such service and offers individual support for each one of the candidates to study abroad. The assisting team takes into account the financial situation of a student, chosen subjects, favorite extracurricular activities, GPA, and things like that. Based on these factors, Univibes develops an individual strategy for admission, increasing chances for a scholarship included.
There is also a supporting alumni network that is involved from the very beginning and includes more than a hundred of active graduates. For instance, a candidate seeking a medical studies degree in Italy, will have on his/her side someone who has already completed a similar course and could share the experience.
Univibes team is focusing on how to provide scholarships and grants for every candidate considering their academic achievements and making sure they will find their perfect alma mater. If for some reasons the search would not be successful, and the Univibes team cannot find the right curriculum, the payment will be refunded.
Univibes’ partnerships with universities, insurance companies and real estate agencies enable a full support service. The circle of partners includes such leading universities as NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences (Netherlands), EU Business School, Munich Business School (Germany), University of Pavia and Luiss (Italy), Ajou University and Soongsil University (South Korea) – and many others.
