Starting An Education Revolution: The Role of Innovation

Innovation is an interesting concept, perhaps a little like other big ideas such as ‘excellence’ and ‘beauty’ where each person enjoys a slightly different flavour, but all know it when they see it. If people had to define it in the abstract, they would never reach a suitable agreement. People agree that innovations are new ideas, approaches, products or processes; they often help society do, see or think in new ways. Against the backdrop of current norms, innovations standout as ‘different’. But difference is not all that is required to make something truly innovative.

To Lunch or Not to Lunch - Perspectives on College Admission Travel

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?

To Lunch Or Not To Lunch

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.

Summing up motivations for study abroad

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.

UK: Singapore peak for online degree study

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.

RepVisits – Taking the Pain Out of Visit Scheduling (May 18)

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.
