BRISBANE, 18 September 2020: Cohort Go is providing an easier and cheaper way for students in Egypt to pay education-related expenses. As Australia’s leading ed-tech, Cohort Go is driven to help students save time and save on costs associated with international fund transfers.
With over 9 years’ experience in the education technology space, Cohort Go is a proven leading payment service provider, constantly finding new and innovative ways to support the international education industry.
Egypt’s education sector is one of the region’s largest, with more than two million students currently enrolled at university level. Although overall outbound student numbers from Egypt are relatively modest, they have grown significantly over the last 10 years.
With this new domestic payment capability, students in Egypt who are looking to study abroad can pay their international tuition fees, living expenses and accommodation in their local currency. Paying in local currency is not only more affordable for students, but it also provides them with more certainty around the exact price of their international education, without losing out on fluctuating foreign exchange rates and fees. Funds are received by their desired educational institution with 3 business days under Cohort Go’s service guarantee.
Mark Fletcher said the new domestic payment capability is an example of the ways Cohort Go continues to provide innovative solutions to help international students achieve.
“At Cohort Go we are always looking for ways to better support international students,” Mr Fletcher said.
“In times of uncertainty, the last thing students want to be worried about is incurring extra fees, or their funds not arriving in the right place at the right time. With the new solution in Egypt, students have peace of mind knowing their funds will arrive at their institution safe and secure, allowing them more time to focus on their studies.”
