“The response from international universities and Indian students was impressive. India is fast becoming an international education hub with many foreign universities willing to enrol Indian students to their universities and this fair has given them the right platform to connect with Indian students,” UniAgents CEO Dishant Kharbanda said.
According to latest updates, over 31 scholarships were awarded by international institutions to Indian students during the conclave.
“The event was also a launchpad for the new B2B product ‘Scholarship cum Admission System (SAS)’ by Buddy4Study for international universities,” Buddy4Study Co-founder and Director Ashutosh Burnwal said.
“SAS is a unique and innovative product for universities. It enables them to attract best meritorious students to their campuses with the help of scholarships. It has 3 parts: PAN India Promotion, Scholarship Application Management and helping students who received university offer letter to external scholarships and loans,” he added.
During the 3-day event, Buddy4Study organized a number of workshops and demos for students and international universities as well.
