Global Study Partners and Cohort Go have announced a collaboration that will enable education agents to buy Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for their students directly.
Global Study Partners (GSP), an international student recruitment platform, has collaborated with Cohort Go, an EdTech provider to enable international student recruitment agents to directly buy Australian Overseas Student Health Cover for their students from the GSP platform in order to save time in manual data entry and to eliminate human error.
Cohort Go provides an international money transfer service for the international education community, which helps international students save large amounts of money on tuition fees and other expenses. It recently announced its entry into the Egypt market.
GSP have a student recruitment platform that gives agents access to a large number of universities where they can easily submit the student applications through their portal to universities the world over.
Cohort Go and Global Study Partners tie-up will streamline student recruitment
Cohort Go has the facility to compare overseas health cover through various comparison websites and offers a range of streamlined workflow resolutions for accommodation and education providers.
Global Study Partners undertakes rigid background checks on all the agencies they partner with which helps systemise the recruitment process for universities and helps them save the time they would have otherwise spent on the checks themselves.
With Cohort Go’s OSCH API integration, OSCH can be purchased by the education agents anytime in the lifecycle of the student’s application, without leaving the Global Study Partner portal. This saves time for agents and also hastens the application process which leads to less stress for the students.
Partnership expected to help provide ‘great choice’ to students looking for OSHC
Mark Fletcher, CEO of Cohort Go, when talking about the partnership, said: “It is encouraging to see other cutting edge services, such as the Global Study Partners innovative student recruitment platform, that helps link agents to education providers.
“With this integration with Cohort Go, it is now easier for education agents and students to organise and apply for their international education, freeing up much needed time and resources for agencies to focus on their students’ experiences.”
Elaine Starkey, CEO of Global Study Partners, said: “Students deserve choice, and partnering with an insurance aggregation platform like Cohort Go is the first step in providing great choice for our students when choosing their OSHC.
“GSP is thrilled with this partnership and we continue to develop the integration of the entire ecosystem of student services ranging from accommodation banking, internships, jobs, etc., to deliver an optimum international student experience.”
