UP Education partners with The Access Platform

17 Mar 2021

UP Education has partnered with The Access Platform (TAP).

The digital peer recruitment tool connects prospective international students interested in studying at the University of Auckland with student ambassadors. Through the platform prospective students discover content and FAQs, and ask everything they want to know about being a student so they can make an informed and confident decision about their future.

Tim McFarlane, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at UP Education, says bringing TAP into our suite of EdTech solutions will further create authentic and connective experiences for prospective students.

“It’s a brilliant example of human-centric technology leveraging the power of peer-to-peer recommendations which plays an important role in our recruitment strategy.

“TAP is a win-win for students – we have a suite of highly engaged ambassadors eager to share their study experiences with prospective students who are keen to find out more about overseas study experiences. Our launch of TAP comes at a time when human connection has never been more important.”

TAP is initially launching with UP Education’s longest-standing university partner, The University of Auckland with four Certificate in Foundation Studies ambassadors.

The student ambassadors will act as peer advisers to prospective students around the world by sharing anecdotes, thoughts and experiences through the platform to help hundreds of students to make a more informed and confident decision about their higher education options.

The digital platform supports our university partners recruitment process by helping students who have been made an offer to better understand the process of accepting their offers.
