The collaboration seeks to enable INTO’s university partners across the UK and the US to engage with prospective international students across 100 countries.
“We are very excited to bring INTO’s leading universities in the US and UK close together with Cialfo’s unique student community and high school counsellor network,” said Cindy Tan, INTO’s chief recruitment officer.
“This will open new gateways for students around the world to achieve their study abroad goals.”
Cialfo’s Direct Apply portal will also allow INTO’s partner universities to receive, manage and track applications using the digital network.
“We are excited to help INTO’s partner universities engage with more qualified students”
“We are thrilled to partner with INTO – one of the world’s most notable international education organisations,” said Cialfo CEO and co-founder Rohan Pasari.
“We are excited to help INTO’s partner universities engage with more qualified students and extend their global reach.”
The first phase of the collaboration will see INTO’s US university partners Oregon State University and George Mason University go live on the platform, followed by UK institutions using Cialfo during the agreement’s second phase.
Cialfo already has a partnership with Washington State University in the US.
Since 2005, INTO has helped more than 130,000 students from 190 countries achieve international degrees in US and UK institutions.
INTO also has an agreement with Times Higher Education to offer free support to prospective students on the THE website.
A recent survey by the international education organisation found that the Covid-19 pandemic has led 55% of under 25s to consider a new career path.
