Ever wondered about the legions of college admissions counselors who visit your high school every year? What is life like on the road? How many schools are they visiting? And what makes for a ‘good’ visit to your school?
District names this month’s GEM honorees.
Hobsons recently surveyed 224 admissions counselors to get their perspective of life on the road. Road warriors from all over the country provided their insights on high school visits, lunch room visits, interactions with high school counselors and students, as well as travel habits throughout the season. Admissions professionals also provided advice for school counselors who host visits on their campus.
Why do students study abroad, and what drives them to choose one destination over another? Several large studies conducted over the past couple of years show that certain motivations are widely present among students the world over.
Singapore and Hong Kong head up the league table for full-online UK degree study by overseas students in 2015/16. Nigeria, Malaysia and the US follow, with growth in these countries being attributed to greater digital connectivity as well as demands for flexible learning.
Cassino, who joined the company last December as Chief Operating Officer with oversight of the company’s Naviance®, Intersect™, and Starfish® product lines, is now responsible for the success of the entire company.
Scheduling visits to high schools can be a time-consuming process for both school counselors and admission counselors. That’s why Erica White, former school counselor and now a Product Manager at Hobsons, created RepVisits in 2015. RepVisits brings high schools and college admission counselors together on one website to schedule appointments and organize college fairs.
Strategic issues — from the UK’s Referendum on the European Union to the US Presidential election last year — have the potential to influence where international students choose to study.
