About us

The Value Of Studying Abroad

We firmly believe that a person's full potential is significantly advanced by giving them the chance to study in another country. It allows them to experience the world through a different lens. It brings cultures together. It maximizes a person's potential with better career opportunities, richer life experiences, unexpected friendships and a thirst for exploring. In short, we believe it makes the world a much better place.

The numbers

And there seems to be a real, growing hunger to study abroad, all over the world. In 2000, roughly 2 Million students were studying abroad. In 2019, the figure passed 5M. By 2025, that number is expected to clear 8M. Why? We believe it's because people hear about how the study abroad experience so enriches the lives of others and they can imagine it doing so for them too.

Status quo

Despite the large and fast growing demand, there seems a complete void of platforms designed to really help students with this very important and often highly confusing decision. A place where students can be closely guided by a human expert advisor, supported by a community of professionals and offered all the services they need to get set up in a new country, delivered all in one place.

When we launched into this industry, we were surprised to learn there was a complete lack of such support.

That's where we come in

Global Study is pioneering a highly innovative product strategy in the Study Abroad space, a decades-old, large and growing market that is highly fragmented and devoid of any true technological innovation. We see a massive opportunity to deliver an elegant solution supporting students in this pivotal moment in their lives by bringing all the support and services to them in one chat-centric place. We aim to answer all their needs, avoiding the hunting and gathering and confusion that makes the process so daunting for so many.

Who Is On Our Team

At Global Study, our team is everything. At the core of our business is people (supported beautifully by tech) helping other people. Our team has grown very fast in the past year, both organically and through the acquisition of 4 very special companies focusing on different things in the Study Abroad space. These include Study in the USA based in Seattle, USA, Top Offer in Chengdu, China. College Connection out of London, England and ProEd located in Dubai, UAE. Each fortifies and complements our existing teams of expert advisors, sales professionals, marketing specialists, technology superstars, finance aces and operations gurus.
