Our Service Offering
We believe that customization is the key, but, to get our clients thinking, here is a range of our services and expertise.
Each of our consultants has more than 10 years of experience in the International Education Industry enabling us to customise our services and work as an extension of your team.
International Shiksha, a unique international education event platform is one of our game changers because it connects International Universities, local institutions and the students directly with each other. A host school is selected where participating universities have the opportunity to present to students from year 8 – 12. Students benefit tremendously from this interaction as they create aspirations, awareness on international courses and careers and get to interact with study networks experts on selecting subjects and careers which will help achieve their professional goals. International Shiksha 2014 was also supported by 4 consulates, namely, The U.S Consulate, The French Embassy, Education New Zealand, and Enterprise Ireland.
In-school Aptitude Tests
There are so many subject and career choices in today’s world. This can be a very daunting task for students and parents who need professional advice. To make this process simpler, easier, and more convenient, we work with local schools to develop their career orientation platforms either in the form of one-to-one consultations or in the form of aptitude tests which include interest and personality assessments. Through our test partners we are able to provide paper-based or online solutions and the presentation of results is always done with both students and parents being present.
International Discovery Programs
At Study Networks, we believe that cultural awareness is the need of the hour as every individual or student is going to engage globally at some point of time in their lives. Our discovery programs allow students to gain an understanding of different cultures through various levels of engagement including, study tours, summer schools, study abroad semesters and our very own Internationalization Beyond Curriculum (IBC) programs.
International Executive Education
Companies are investing a lot of time and money in staffing, training and building the company’s brand loyalty amongst its employees. Addressing the issue of staff retention and higher level training, companies are providing its employees with executive education options especially for their mid-top level management tier. Study Networks works with companies to identify the best international executive education programs for their needs.
Internships are beneficial to both the corporate world and the ‘intern’. A corporate gets to create a brand presence with prospective employees while an intern benefits tremendously through learning and exposure to a work environment while they complete their studies. At Study Networks, we look at putting employers and local institutions in touch with each other to develop constructive and effective internship programs with ‘learning’ as a key focus of the program.
What a great way to learn! Through our partners, our international volunteering program allows students to contribute to a global society, learn a new language and even gain cultural insights by spending some constructive time volunteering in a new country. Any student or young professional above the age of 18 years can enrol for this program.
Personalised Career Consultations
Today’s students and young adults are exposed to many choices that finally make up his / her education, training and skills set. Not only is learning completed from traditional areas like schools, but also from family, peers, technology and lifestyles. It is therefore important to understand aptitude and skills as well as interests and backgrounds in order develop a holistic career path for students. At Study Networks, we do things differently with the student / young adult being the focus of the program. Students along with their parents can opt for a personalised and in-depth consultation with an expert who is then available for any additional assistance you may require in developing the students career path. It is predominantly designed to assist students with their self discovery and a future course selection.
DOMM Life is a perfect example of a game changer in the area of events designed for local educational institutions. Study Networks worked with the Department of Mass Media team at Don Bosco College to develop the entire event – its brand, creating its own identity, creating all the event creatives and collateral, marketing the program to sponsors, and project managing the event. From providing a self assessment survey, created by psychologist Tasneem Saiyed, to help students identify their affinity in the media industry; to organizing speakers across ten media disciplines, Study Networks was instrumental in planning and executing the event including managing the digital broadcasts post the event.
Internationalization Beyond Curriculum
Study Networks flagship program, Internationalization Beyond Curriculum (IBC) is a game changer as it offers school students an integrated educational ‘experience’ allowing them to learn through traditional classes at foreign campuses, gain a cultural perspective by staying in a foreign country, receive a work perspective by visiting companies. The program is designed for students to have a relevant and enriching educational experience. The IBC program is currently being introduced across schools in India.

From identifying personnel to assist your operations in India to supporting your serviced office requirements, we are able to create a holistic solution. Study Networks consultants are also able to advice clients on their entry strategy in India.
Alumni Development & Management
An estimated 250 thousand Indian students graduate from international universities each year however, only a few institutions are effectively able to manage their alumni networks. This is surprising when it is a known fact that Alumni management can provide a multitude of opportunities to their alma mater from direct funding to corporate engagement to being brand ambassadors. Study Networks is able to help Universities with their off-shore alumni associations and chapters providing regulatory framework advice to institutions and the alumni with a chance to network and maintain a positive connection with their institution.
As an additional service linked closely with our Branding solutions, we are able to provide our international clients with the most effective media campaigns across print, on-line and social media. We create positioning campaigns, PR activities for visiting delegations, marketing material and assist with merchandising requirements for our clients.
With the usher in of the streamline visa process (SVP), there is a real need for education providers to ensure that students meet the “genuine temporary entrant” (GTE) criteria prior to enrolment. Our services here include the creation of a system best suited to meet our client requirements which include high quality, prompt and professional due-diligence surveys, background checks and agent engagement strategies. We are currently able to provide these services in India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Created especially for our Australian clients, variations of this service is gaining relevance across other education providers across the world.
Recruitment Support Services
With an estimated population of over 1.2 billion, it is quite natural for the number of student enrolments in India to be high. According to a 2014 report, there is an estimated 315 million students undertaking some form of education in India. Of these, 13 million are enrolled in higher education institutions and about 350 thousand students studying overseas. The Indian government has also made education a priority area and has introduced several schemes from right to education to ‘Padho Pardesh’ (translated : ‘Study Abroad’). The message is clear – Education is a priority for the Indian government and the Indian population. However, in this market, one-size doesn’t fit all and it is important to know the customer or, in this case, your target student group to be able to market effectively to them. Study Networks provides the clients with expert advice needed to achieve their marketing, admissions and student recruitment needs.
Partnership development is the underlying principle of everything that we do. We believe that a lot can be achieved through effective partnerships. It helps create opportunities and collaborations; be it in the form of establishing faculty and student exchange; joint research programs or creating mentoring organizations which help create business pipelines and networking opportunities. Here, the Study Networks teams works with you in partner identification, developing an effective MOU and ensuring its continuity.

“We were happy to host and excited to have all universities and the consulates visit us and I think ‘Study Networks’ has taken on the responsibility extremely well. They have been collaborating with us from day-1 with a highly systematic and target oriented in their approach. We do believe that this is a bold start for any parent to take a crucial decision to move his/her child to another country and is not a decision taken over one day. So, this is our small endeavour to the big start for parents and children to explore a robust networking opportunity at one go. Parents even got an opportunity to personally meet and take the conversation ahead with different consulates and universities”
“International Shiksha, this year was combined with introductory seminars on career options, provided by industry experts, international universities and government agencies. It is a prolific assembly of Indian schools, colleges, students and parents alongside international education providers with a stern belief that students do have the right for first-hand information and also gain deep insights into fields of study and institutions which will enable them to effectively plan their future and career”
“I truly appreciate Study Networks for holding such wonderful event like International Shiksha, I do feel it met their goal to showcase information on more than 10 countries to students! The strategic selection of reputed schools catering to southern, central & western suburbs gave a wider reach over 3 day’s schedule. Thanks to wonderful professional team for their kind support & hospitality”
"Macquarie University, Sydney has been working with Study Networks for the past few months to assist with its school engagement strategy in Mumbai. Within this short time, we have benefited from their excellent contacts and relationships with local schools and colleges and are now in the process of implementing some of the projects we had planned for this year. I would recommend Study Networks to any institution looking to build a foot print in Mumbai."
Study Networks International Shiksha was “unique in its kind as not only did the students show interest (in our programs) but school principals and teachers did too. Moreover, parents too attended the event, which was really good, portraying the concern of both teachers and parents in the child's future career prospects.”
“It has been a pleasure having Study Networks host their event in the school premises and the turnout has been good. Their event addresses the importance of exposure in today’s world of globalization where there is a need to create awareness among students and make them realise their dreams through career guidance.”
"As class mom, was in touch with Study Networks to explore aptitude assessments for my class. They are professional and prompt, warm and responsive. It was a pleasure interacting with them and I plan to go back to Study Networks for counselling re. colleges”
“Study Networks brings with it, a team of highly knowledgeable and supportive individuals that guide the student right from square one. With their vast experience, and zero vested interests, the personnel there play the role of a friend over a firm so as to ensure, the comfort and convenience of the student along with a smooth sailing admission process to help him in getting the best. Their network is strong all over the globe that further benefits the student aspiring to learn overseas.”
“DOMM Life was a creative initiative to give students a platform to identify with the media industry and give us a clearer view of the various careers available in media. Most of the speakers were very interesting and they knew how to grab our attention…their presentations and videos helped us understand the concepts better. Overall, it was informative and educated us more than just books could have.”
