Study West Virginia and StudyPortals teamed up to increase the number of international students in West Virginia by promoting the state and its schools as a study destination. As a consortia, we received a lot more traffic through StudyPortals than we would have gotten on our own and I was impressed by how many referrals converted into inquiries for our universities. Additionally, StudyPortals has been a great resource for knowledge in the field and has been very helpful in reviewing our analytics.

SNHU is one of the fastest-growing universities in the country. To recruit internationally, we use a wide mix of online channels: Google Adwords, Social Media, Display Networks, Online Portals and others. We have a team of 12 Web Data Analysts that help us track results through to applications / enrolments. StudyPortals has proven to be one of the best performing channel for us. Next to an excellent return of investment the StudyPortals team is very supportive, and dedicated to helping us reach our goals. I look forward to a continued partnership with StudyPortals and would recommend them to other state consortia

MacKenzie Hizon,
Director of International Recruitment

I have worked at HEI for over 10 years now, involved in various activities related to internationalization and promotion activities. In this time I have cooperated with many companies and StudyPortals is definitely one that I can honestly recommend. While working with them on everyday basis I have always experienced professional, open-minded attitude. My contact person – Oana Calota has always showed great deal of understanding and individual approach as well as true engagement in boosting the results of the campaign for University of Economics in Katowice, which we have launched together. The campaign proved to be successful in many aspects. Moreover, we were able to identify our weak points – especially in terms of web usability. I believe that StudyPortals is not just about making business and the concept beyond Study Portals: “helping students to find information and a strong belief in the value of international experiences- both for the individual student and for society” is worth getting involved in.

Edyta Lachowicz-Santos,
Head of International Communication and Relations Office

We have worked with many companies for the campaigns organized for the University of Bucharest and I can say that the cooperation with StudyPortals was one of the most remarkable. Throughout this cooperation we had a very productive and enriching experience.Our goal to expand the internationalization process for our faculties was very easily achieved with the help of well-documented and professional advice from StudyPortals experts. Overall, we have been very impressed with the quality of the work that they carried out. Their ability to identify the best promotion actions and their mastery of the whole process was exemplary. StudyPortals was a partner involved from start to finish.In addition to that, it definitively is worth mentioning the excellent collaboration with Oana Calota, who undertook this assignment in a very professional manner. Since the beginning of our cooperation, her proactive and individual approach, attention to our needs and focus on results lead to an increased visibility of our university for international students.

It’s a pleasure to work with StudyPortals – both this website from a professional stand point of view and personally with their staff. During our cooperation in the past 3 years, we’ve seen the student number generated increased remarkably. This, however, could not be achieved without their innovative and responsive services. Besides what you might be expecting, they can also provide much-tailored marketing proposal based on the university needs. Our experience with them already proved StudyPortals to be one of the first-class marketing partners. StudyPortals definitely is the first platform I would recommend if your university is seeking to raise your awareness across the globe.

StudyPortals is an important external traffic generator (following organic search engines) for Fontys in terms of volume. Moreover, the quality of the visitors is very high; the average bounce rate of the StudyPortals traffic is only 15%, compared to an average overall bounce rate of 45%, and average bounce rate of 36% for search engines (Google/Yahoo). In addition, the number of pages visited is 45% higher than their website average.

What convinced me to work with StudyPortals was their approach. The idea of their portal not only reflects students’ needs to receive a well established overview of study and scholarship programmes – the initiators of this portal have been students themselves and just put together what they were missing most during their own studies… And, believe it or not, these guys, with all their sense for result driven professional interaction and – simply – business: They are friendly, have a great sense of humour – and, if you are not quick enough to hide – come and visit you personally. I hope to have the privilege to continue my work with them for a long time.

StudyPortals has increased lead generation and brand awareness for EC. It is our best performing online recruitment channel when it comes to quality of traffic. They have constantly delivered what they have promised and more. Promoting EC across the board in 4 different languages and achieving great results. They have always kept us up to date when changes or updates were occurring, giving us personal attention on how to better our results. Their professionalism, experience and constant support is second to none. Thanks for the collaboration.

Collegium Medicum is the youngest medical university in Poland, but we have already established a strong brand in our home country and are developing internationally. We are delighted with the possibility of increasing our international enrolment by reaching out to prospective candidates from all corners of the world. StudyPortals has provided us with a highly effective means of promoting ourselves worldwide, offering a professional and comprehensive service supplemented with active client support, ideas for campaign optimisation, and valuable feedback on our promotional activities. We are perfectly satisfied with our fruitful and hopefully long-lasting cooperation.

“We have worked with StudyPortals for several years to promote our Master’s programmes through MastersPortal. Through our results-based campaigns we have managed to drive traffic to our webpage and generate leads for our programmes. Most recently we have also commissioned a benchmarking study from StudyPortals regarding the imminent introduction of tuition fees for non-EU students on our programmes. The benchmark and recommendations both with regards to the setting of the fees and introducing a scholarship system was a great support going forward with the process. Furthermore, the recommendations regarding the scholarship system were also very useful when planning the implementation. StudyPortals have always been very generous in sharing their extensive knowledge of the higher education market. In combination with their extensive data deducted from their portal, I’m confident they can support most institutions both with insight and generating quality leads.”- Hanna Donner – Head of Marketing, Hanken School of Economics.

The cooperation with StudyPortals is very pleasant and professional. But it’s not just that, we can really see the results. We conducted a research amongst our first-year Master students and at least one third of them learned about us from MasterPortal.eu. They provide high quality service which is truly worth it. The faculty profile page at StudyPortals is well arranged and enables students to get acquainted with all the necessary details and compare particular programmes.

Erasmus University has a strong online focus. One of the benefits of web marketing is that online campaigns can be measured meticulously. To determine the effectiveness of our online marketing activities, we measure the conversions from traffic to lead, and from lead to enrollment. Our evaluations have shown that StudyPortals deliver qualitative leads that have a better conversion rate than most other platforms.

International Marketing and Recruitment Manager

Liverpool Hope University choose to use MastersPortal to help raise awareness of its postgraduate courses to a wider audience. We are extremely happy with the campaign that has helped us to reach markets that is often very difficult for a smaller university with a limited budget. The best thing has been the flexibility of the technology. We have been able to use the preferences in such a way that we are gaining quality referrals that meet our requirement. The results have been extremely targeted. Mastersportal’s reporting is superior to many of the other similar products on the market which has been extremely helpful in monitoring the campaigns success and has helped us to focus our portfolio in key markets.

Nancy Donna Cooke,
International Recruitment Manager

Our web statistics show that our banner campaigns ran on Masters- and BachelorsPortal.eu have been very effective in attracting high volumes and high quality visitors to our website. Furthermore, the StudyPortals team delivers good service, advice and even measured experiments to optimise our web marketing to promote The Netherlands as a study destination.

Kasia Bruning,
Communications officer – Education Promotion Department

Working with StudyPortals is different. Within our close collaboration, we regularly discuss in depth together how we can benefit most from their portals. If it is unclear, which way will yield the best results, we try out different approaches and share our statistics to come up with the right solution. Highly recommended!

“Athabasca University is an open, online, public university based in Alberta Canada. It provides learning for life to over 40,000 students across Canada and in 87 other countries. AU is well positioned domestically and was looking to expand its reach internationally. This is where StudyPortals came in. We engaged StudyPortals to help us reach an international market. Our initial contact Michael was very patient and professional walking us through the onboarding process and our opening StudyPortals launch. This launch was so successful that we put StudyPortals on hiatus upon the pilot’s completion so we could revamp how we action the resulting leads. During that hiatus Michael returned to Europe and our contact then changed to Andrew. StudyPortals was able to find us a new contact who stepped right into the relationship and managed it in the same patient and professional manner to which we had been accustomed. It’s a pleasure to work with any member of the StudyPortals team. If you’re looking for a true partner in international recruitment StudyPortals will be that partner for you.”

Throughout the years, StudyPortals, especially mastersportal.eu, has proven to be a very successful online marketing channel for us in terms of international student applications. The cooperation with them has been effortless – they are always on time, friendly, helpful and keep you up-to-date with their news and your campaign’s progress. StudyPortals is the first education platform I would recommend to any university. We are very happy with them and hope that this fruitful, effective and close cooperation will continue into the future

The cooperation with StudyPortals allowed Novosibirsk University to significantly increase the flow of students to our website as well as to work more effectively with leads. StudyPortals’ Consulting services were also helpful in providing recommendations on how to monitor and track prospective students, how to post information on landing pages more efficiently, and to optimize the application procedures to help us recruit students more effectively. Thanks StudyPortals!
