ESS Global, a consultancy firm that provides recruitment services for students who wish to study abroad, announces its plans to recruit students from North India for studying abroad by this year-end in bid to maximize its international presence.
The company has set a target of recruiting 1800 to 2000 students this calendar year, and is on track to accomplish the same within the set timeline.
ESS Global focuses on recruiting students for studying abroad across various destinations like Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, etc. and partners with various prestigious universities and colleges in these locations. It provides the right course selection for students planning to study abroad. It also offers in-depth information about visa filing processes for different countries, and has a high success rate.
"India is one of the major source countries that sends students to pursue higher education across various overseas destinations. In 2015, it was reported that the number of international students from India went up to 3, 50,000, and is expected to increase over the next couple of years. Thus, inspired by this encouraging trend, we are on a mission to guide Indian students and help them realize their dream of pursuing higher studies in any international study destination without any hassle," said chairman and MD, ESS Global, Gurinder Bhatti.
ESS Global is seeing a rise in number of students enquiring about higher education possibilities in overseas destinations, with most falling in the age group of 18-24 years. The majority of those applying are students fresh out of school and about to enroll for undergraduate programs, followed by college students looking for post graduate or Master's degree programs abroad.
Additionally, the firm has observed that Canada has emerged the most favored destination among Indian students this year, with Australia now at second position. In terms of popular courses, most individuals are opting for courses in business and management, medical and bio medical science, health care management, science, and technology, with greater preference for stem subjects.
