A unique approach to the international student recruitment model

Sofiri is very excited to announce a partnership with StudyPortals, the world leader of course information to prospective international students: https://www.studyportals.com/

This partnership establishes a new way of supporting aspiring students by connecting course information with application creation using Sofiri’s unique digital platform. From the StudyPortals websites students simply connect to Sofiri and choose an Education Expert to assist them.

About StudyPortals

Study Portals was created out of the frustration of not being able to find an international Masters to study in Europe – this led to the creation of several informational websites cluding Bachelorsportal.comPhDportal.comShortcoursesportal.com. All have the same goal:

  1. to fill the information gap that hinders students from finding and starting their international studies and
  2. to provide a comprehensive internet source where international programmes can be found and compared on an international level

Nowadays, the Studyportals team consists of over 190 people with 35 different nationalities, with the centre of their operations in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Study Portals currently has more than 3,200 participating universities around the world. They cooperate with and are supported by the European Commission and many national institutes such as the British Council (UK), DAAD (Germany), Nuffic (Netherlands), SUI (Norway), OeAD (Austria), Universidad.es (Spain) and many more

The Study Portals-Sofiri model

StudyPortals and Sofiri have partnered to make the student journey much simpler. Finding the right course can be complex and time consuming and Study Portals has filled that gap. But equally, applying to an education provider can be an arduous process. There are so many seemingly complex steps for an aspiring student to make their destination of choice a reality.

This is where the Study Portals-Sofiri model comes in. Once a student finds their course they are provided the opportunity to connect with Sofiri to assist them to apply. Once they register with Sofiri they choose their own Education Expert to work with. Their Education Expert, working with the student online and in some cases face-to-face, will provide counselling services from admission to enrolment. Best of all this service is completely free.
