This presents a great market opportunity for schools, universities, student accommodation providers, immigration agents and many more businesses in the global education sector. In many countries, education one of the most significant export markets, and international students are the biggest drivers of growth.

90% of Chinese students fund their education themselves, with the latest estimates suggesting there are over 660,000 Chinese students currently studying overseas – a number growing substantially every year. Some of the most popular destinations for studying overseas are the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

    • Build trust with prospective students
    • Elevate your brand
    • Provide essential enrollment and application information
    • Give students information they can easily share with their families (remember, international websites are usually blocked)
    • Answer key FAQs
    • Showcase the lifestyle and location of your campus as a destination
    • Show that your are accommodating and understanding by giving students material in their language and preferred medium
    • Share stories of other Chinese students and their experiences

    Enhance Education Agent Campaigns

    By giving your agents Chinese marketing messages, it helps them seal the deal with their clients, arming them with the information their clients will need to choose your institution over other education opportunities.

    Build Trust with Chinese Students

    Trust is important, and choosing to study overseas is a huge decision. Without great information in Chinese, students tend to listen mostly to other students in their network. Posting regularly on WeChat allows investors to get to know you and trust that study, living with and trusting you will be the best choice for their future.
