Technology is now being used by universities all around the world to improve student performance. Transformative AI technology is enabling universities throughout the world in tapping into the growing pool of students interested in studying abroad. Universities are using data-driven AI techniques to forecast enrolment patterns and improve recruiting and retention. Universities around the world are teaming up with EdTech start-ups that are using data to revolutionise the study abroad scene.
COVID-19 put our lives in jeopardy, affecting every facet of our life. However, data shows that the pandemic did not deter students who wanted to study abroad. Even after the COVID problem, we’re seeing an increase in the number of kids who want to study abroad. The pandemic has given birth to several AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) operated platforms, which have assisted students in making informed decisions about studying abroad.
These platforms provide impartial advice, content, and application assistance to students about not only various course and university options, but also which options will suit them the best given their interests and aim to help their users to make better, well-informed decisions. In order to do so, they build assistive AI products that tackle problems that most users face in their everyday lives.
