The most powerful platform for international student advisory agencies and their students.

Global Study was established in February 2020. Its objective: to create the most powerful platform for international student recruitment agencies and their students. A one-stop gateway where everything a student needs can be managed and delivered. The aim is to give agencies superpowers when it comes to managing their operations and their students. And to make the confusing and daunting study abroad journey simpler and painless.

Where we are now

In August 2022, Global Study launched the alpha version of Student Advisor, its game changing platform for international student management. We began working closely with student advisory operations to optimize and improve the platform over the following many months creating what we believe is a platform the Study Abroad industry has longed for. Our rigorous optimization and improvement period allowed us to reach strong product-market fit with our alpha test advisory operations before releasing our beta.
