The role of digital technologies in the evolving international student recruitment landscape: a conversation with EduCo Accelerate


The emergence of digital technologies is transforming the way international students are recruited by education providers worldwide.

In this webinar Dr. David Pilsbury, Chief Development Officer at Oxford International Education Group, and Adam Roberts, Senior Vice President at EduCo Accelerate, will help us navigating the evolving international student recruitment landscape, looking at how digital technology is disrupting traditional practice, and how aggregators such as EduCo Accelerate are supporting providers in addressing current challenges and opportunities.

How do digital platforms and aggregators address issues such as conversion, quality control, compliance and recruitment channel conflict? How can institutions protect their brand while amplifying their market reach and attracting right-fit students? And will there be a growing place for TNE in the evolving international recruitment space?
