AI widens scope of academic guidance
- Canam, one of the most experienced education consulting companies in India, has been empowering students to opt for programs abroad that match their potential and aspirations, for the past twenty-five years.
No one in this world is born with a goal or a set life path. People rather get embedded into the scheme of things that leads them to choose their domain. Following interests is important for growth, professional gratification, and to make a salient contribution to their line of work; but the contrary only brings resentment and dissatisfaction. In this era of information explosion and easy access, knowing one’s pursuit can also be challenging given the vast array of subjects to study and specialize in. This is where platforms that help align individuals to the right programs with all the accurate information, play a vital role.
Canam, one of the most experienced education consulting companies in India, has been empowering students to opt for programs abroad that match their potential and aspirations, for the past twenty-five years. Its newest division, iApply, has digitalized study abroad operations to provide tailor-made solutions to students for post-secondary education in Canada.
Indian nationals comprise 34 percent of the total foreign student population in Canada. Keeping up with the pattern, in 2019, about one-third of all study permits issued by Canada were secured by Indians, taking the tally of accepted applicants from the country to 1.4 lakh.
“With a vision of making its services available to students even in the remotest parts, iApply is on a mission to scale access to quality education across the world, unlocking routes to build an equitable future." says Head of iApply, Ravin Sandhu.
The application management tool has simplified the process of exploring and applying to a variety of courses and academic institutes across Canada. It has a detailed database of over 10,000 programs offered by more than 250 colleges and universities, and allows students to obtain all the important information required to make a well-informed decision with just a few clicks.
Its well- structured systems let students narrow down their search using optimized filters based on eligibility, province, fee structure, backlogs etc. In addition, students can shortlist and apply to multiple institutes, courses, scholarships, and avail application fee waivers, from a single AI powered system, that keeps users’ information confidential at all times. The platform’s ‘Live Program Availability’ and ‘Search by Eligibility’ features ensure that applications are made for intakes that are currently open as well as to the ones that students are eligible for. It also gives them the provision to track their status and view changes reflected in any part of the process in real-time.
The platform is designed keeping inclusivity for individual preferences at its core. It can be directly accessed by students and guardians on all personal smart devices, and connects students to expert advisors who work closely with them to deliver custom-made solutions.
“Quality professional and academic guidance doesn’t just have an impact on the individual’s life, but contributes immensely to the Canadian economy. It helped sustain around 170,000 jobs in the country in 2018. This, along with innovation in the education industry has led Canadian authorities to allocate a budget of nearly $150 million over 5 years for its International Education Strategy in comparison to the previously ongoing $8 million per year funding," notes the CEO of Canam, Anuraj Sandhu.
As the only Edtech platform dedicated solely to post-secondary education in Canada, iApply by Canam endeavors to maintain a streamlined and transparent process of applying to academic institutes most suited to the students’ preferences and capabilities, using cutting edge technology.
