Connections are critical in international recruitment––matching students to the right course for them is key after all. But in reality, building a large, diverse, and multi-destination portfolio that offers depth and breadth is out of reach for most agents. 

Searching course offerings, finding scholarships, and building global connections can be complex and time-consuming. In Australia, although 97% of agents used by international students are small businesses, the final 3%, consisting of larger better-connected agencies, get 70% of the placements. 

It might also be that some agencies have specialised in a certain destination country and now wish to branch out to offer other countries, or just offer more options for their client base

Our marketplace helps agents level the playing field. By subscribing, our agent partners gain access to a portfolio of institutions previously limited to an influential few.

Not just that. With streamlined searchability, dedicated support, and efficient turnaround speeds, we’re making the complex simple for agents. 

Our marketplace helps agents level the playing field

1. Access to 60,000+ courses 

Getting the right student to the right course quickly is a priority for any recruiter. And with student demand predicted to increase 30% by 2030, greater choice is needed to meet growth. 

In India, the average agent has just 10 university partnerships. Not so with Adventus.io. Subscribing to our marketplace means expanding from a handful of connections to 1,200+ university partnerships, 60,000+ courses, and almost 2,000 scholarships – universities, pathway programs, colleges, high schools. 

What’s more, we’re partnered with world-leading institutions in 35+ countries, in both leading (UK, Canada, USA, Germany, NZ, and Australia) and innovative destinations like Ireland, Poland, and the Netherlands, amongst many others.

Our USA portfolio is one of the best in the world with 450+ institutions and 600+ bespoke scholarships. 

For Anand Sarabjit of Life Course, gaining global connections is a business gamechanger. 

“With Adventus.io, we have countless connections with universities around the world––connections we never could have dreamed of before. For me, it’s about matching the students to the right course. Adventus.io shares that philosophy,” he said.   

2. We’re always growing

Our global partnerships team is world-class. Located in key education hubs UK, North America, and Australasia, our team members are very experienced and highly regarded by institutions in their regions. All are veterans of the international education field, having worked within institutions themselves.

They’re working hard to create unparalleled opportunities and access on behalf of agents. 

Thanks to this dedicated team, we’re onboarding at least one new institution every single day and our course offerings are increasing by the thousands month on month.

We’re also continually listening. If our agents identify an institution they’d like in our portfolio, we make it our mission to make that happen. 

With Adventus.io, we have countless connections with universities around the world––connections we never could have dreamed of before.

3. Searching is easy 

Not only do we offer world-class connections: we’ve also developed searchability like never before.

Our evolved course search means sorting through our 60,000+ courses is fast, easy, and relevant. Even with COVID-19 slowing international education, our platform has facilitated 600K+ searches since the beginning of the pandemic.

Our advanced search takes into account factors like nationality, intakes, and financial eligibility to enable counsellors to build a shortlist of relevant courses. The process is speedy and relevancy means avoiding unnecessary fees since students are never applying for unsuitable options. 

Not only that, our latest functionality allows counsellors to start searching in seconds without entering detailed information. Even our new counsellors can search before signing on a student.

4. Unbeatable support team

For us, there’s nothing worse than the thought of counsellors struggling on their own. And while it isn’t industry standard to provide dedicated support for counsellors, we think it’s a no-brainer. 

At Adventus.io, we have an unbeatable support team. Our team guides counsellors through course options, application requirements, and visa processes to ensure they know how to get the best out of our platform. 

Our support team consists of real people and in-country specialists who are available to continually assist. 

We also offer regular training webinars to support our counsellors that are market-relevant and in response to what they want. Destination training, admissions and QCV procedures, updates about popular institutions, and even training on ‘sectors’ i.e. extension college options at top US universities, public college options in Canada, and many more.

Our agents ask: we deliver. 

I knew partnering with Adventus.io would be important for my success.

5. Speedy processing 

We know how important speed is when it comes to applications. In line with our mission to build the fastest processing system in the world, we’ve invested in a super centre and a 60 person team to make our processing faster than ever. 

We guarantee lodgement of all completed applications in under 24 hours––with 80% being processed in under three hours. And we’re always on hand to ensure applications are as best they can be. Now, you’ll never lose a student by being too slow in getting them an offer. 

For Suneetha Kadiyala, an experienced recruiter starting her own consultancy, speed was just one reason for joining Adventus.io. 

“I knew partnering with Adventus.io would be important for my success,” she said. “That’s why I spent my first day in business partnering with the company. I didn’t want to waste any time. It’s simple for me to search the portal, filter for programmes, tuition fees, and intakes, then gain a shortlist of universities for each student. It makes my job so much easier. The Adventus.io team is extraordinary. They normally process applications within a day and make things fast and easy.”

Previously, access to university recruitment contracts was limited to those with the resources to secure them one by one. Building a portfolio impressive enough to attract students was challenging for agents. By democratising access, we’re making it possible for all agents to get students to the right courses, fast.

We’re making the complex simple.
