BrighterEd to help Olympic College increase international enrollments through managing agent-sourced recruitment
BREMERTON, WA, January 31, 2017 – BrighterEd, international marketing and recruitment firm for US higher education, announced today a partnership with Olympic College near Seattle, Washington.
In this partnership, BrighterEd will provide agent-sourced recruitment using its global network of professional recruiters. BrighterEd will manage the contracts with agents and provide them support through all phases of the recruitment process. BrighterEd is also responsible for training agents and assuring all promotions are accurate, ethical and compliant with US-recruitment regulations.
This partnership model allows Olympic to have a global network of thousands of agents with only needing to manage the one contract with BrighterEd. Olympic College will continue managing its existing agent contracts and retains the right to manage additional contracts if they would be best served working with the college.
Olympic College offers the first two years of a bachelor’s degree with guaranteed progression to universities ranked Top 150 by U.S. News and World Report. International students have recently progressed to Top 75 universities including Purdue, University of Chicago and more. The total cost of attendance for international students is $19,201 per year, which will make it attractive in rank-sensitive and price-sensitive markets alike.
“Olympic College is an ideal destination for international students,” said Jason Hall, President of BrighterEd. “Olympic combines the affordability and flexibility of a community college with the level of international-student support one would expect at a major university.”
“We’re excited about the partnership with BrighterEd,” said Heather Lukashin, Director of International Education and Study Abroad at Olympic College. “We have a lot of confidence that we will be able to diversify our international student population in a way we would not be able to do without BrighterEd, since they have a worldwide network.”
BrighterEd is currently accepting applications for spring, summer and fall intakes.
BrighterEd helps US colleges and universities find success internationally. It offers International Pathways, Intensive English, international marketing, international recruiting and consulting with a flexible partnership model – allowing schools to get only the services they need.
