UniSearch, a Sydney-based EdTech company and international student recruitment solutions provider founded by Bangladesh-born Australian Mr. Ashraf Haq, is preparing to begin onsite operations in Bangladesh in 2022. This move follows upon UniSearch’s digital platform launch earlier this year.
UniSearch simplifies the study abroad process for students through the flexibility of various application routes within one platform. Students filter down universities and programs around the world to a tailor-made shortlist with UniSearch’s AI-powered search engine. At the same time, students connect with expert counsellors within their region virtually or in-person through local branches, and with international student mentors around the world, working on their study abroad goals and applying right away. Beyond this, students receive one-to-one support, either online or in-person, to build solid applications, receive assistance with visa processes, select from a range of the best available overseas health covers, explore student funding and loan options available through local banks, and more.
UniSearch is currently operating physical branches in India and Malaysia, and aims to launch onsite in Bangladesh later this year. “Bangladesh is a rapidly-evolving student source market, with many increasingly seeking opportunities to study abroad,” says Mr. Haq, who is himself a former international student with over a decade of professional experience in international higher education. “By bringing together local expertise with the global perspective of our digital platform, we aim to customise study abroad solutions for these Bangladeshi students to make every step of their international student journey more accessible.”
To this end, the launch of UniSearch Bangladesh would create a minimum of 50 jobs in the growing global higher education sector in the country.
In addition to launching in Bangladesh, UniSearch expects to see over 1.5 million annual visitors on its digital platform by the end of the year, and over 5 million visitors from 2023 onwards.
