Hobsons is sponsoring the annual EduTech conference in Brisbane on 30 May – 1 June.
Hobsons' Director, Higher Education Product and Service, APAC shares thoughts on launching Naviance in Australia.
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.
We are excited to offer Naviance by Hobsons, a global postsecondary planning tool already used by 8 million students worldwide to explore in meaningful ways the connection between education and careers as they progress through school.
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.
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.
When the government decided against excluding international students from immigration targets through the Higher Education and Research Act, the higher education sector reacted with dismay.
Responses to the International Student Survey by Hobsons show 68.5% of prospective students say the EU referendum results had little impact on their interest to study in the UK.
