The company’s new office in the Indian city of Bangalore will provide a free service to students searching for student accommodation overseas.
“Changes in visa regulations for Indian students looking to study abroad is a key driver of this”
“We have seen strong growth in demand in the region over the past two years and even though we have had people on the ground supplementing the infrastructure of our global team, we have now decided to invest in a physical presence on the ground,” Luke Nolan Student.com CEO and founder said.
The opening of the office in India is a part of Student.com’s wider global presence expansion strategy, the company said.
UK government statistics show that 63% of Indian students are choosing to study in the UK – one of Student.com’s key markets.
The company also provides accommodation options in Canada, Australia, the US and a range of European study destinations.
“Changes in visa regulations for Indian students looking to study abroad is a key driver of this growth and we are really excited about the future for Indian students going forward,” Nolan added.
“We’ve been able to set up incredibly fast and this is all down to the startup spirit of Bangalore and the commitment to growth in India.
“Our existing team are now joined by a super-strong growth team who are ready to take our journey to the next level.”
