CHALLENGES

  • Time consuming for agents to work across multiple platforms 
  • Time constraints in lodging student applications 
  • Inefficient student journey 

BENEFITS

  • Saves agents & students significant time in double data entry 
  • Eliminates costly human error 
  • Provides more choice and value in OSHC for students
  • Creates an optimum international student experience

Global Study Partners (GSP) partnered with Cohort Go to allow education agents and students to purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) directly from the GSP portal. The integration saves agents and students significant time in manual data entry and eliminates costly human error. 

Providing agents and students efficient and simple processes. 

Global Study Partners provides access to a wide range of universities, which allows students more choice when applying to their education provider to begin their international education journey. 

Using Cohort Go’s OSHC API integration, education agents can purchase OSHC during the application lifecycle of the student, without having to leave the Global Study Partners portal.  This saves applicants time by eliminating manual student data entry, while making the application process faster for students, saving them stress.

Elaine Starkey, Global Study Partners CEO, said the partnership was in line with the company’s commitment to enriching the entire student journey. 

“Global Study Partners enables recruitment partners globally to not only search, compare and apply for universities and schools globally, but also to provide end to end seamless integration and process efficiency for all student placements and student services,” Starkey said.

Providing students choice and value

Students and agents are often under time constraints when it comes to purchasing OSHC to meet visa requirements. Students look to the most affordable OSHC to meet their budgets for their international education, which can take time when researching multiple insurers websites. By integrating with Cohort Go, GSP users easily have access to compare the price of all Australian Government approved OSHC providers in the one place, and can receive quotes or purchase their OSHC instantly. 

“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,” Starkey said.
