● Leverage Edu becomes One Vasco’s first and exclusive partner amongst study abroad platforms in India. Leverage Edu’s move is focused on easing the student visa journey and eliminating visa rejections due to avoidable reasons.
● Leverage Edu’s students will now benefit from Visa At Your Doorstep (VAYD) service offered by VFS Global
September 12th, 2022. Study abroad platform Leverage Edu announced that they have signed a partnership to serve students in India who require assistance processing their Visa applications. Leverage Edu’s decision aims to significantly improve the student experience in this vital stage of the admissions process.
Leverage Edu has entered into an exclusive partnership with One Vasco, a global travel services company to provide visa concierge services to all Leverage Edu students. With the One Vasco student visa application service, students no longer need to worry about the visa application as a step-by-step support takes them through the lengthy and sometimes complicated application process. Students get access to expert advisors 24/7 who will check every supporting document before assisting in drafting and submitting the application. In the next few months, the One Vasco service will also be a part of the student dashboard within the ‘Study Abroad with Leverage Edu’ mobile app.
Leverage Edu’s students can now also benefit from the much sought-after VAYD (Visa-at-your-doorstep) service offered by VFS Global (where applicable for the travel corridor). This will enable students to complete their application submission from home including biometric enrolment without having to visit a visa application centre. The move helps the student avoid crowding at VFS Centres enable processing of student Visa applications in a convenient and safe way.
“As our business and impact scaled to thousands of students per intake this year, there was a very clear realisation that Visa is a core component of what the student expects from us. We have always kept turnaround time for Visas, and the many steps before and after that, as a key metric to gauge our own student success targets. The desire hence was to not just become world best at it, but also integrate it into our technology stack. And hence, this partnership with a company as forward looking and willing to experiment as One Vasco is! Through an omnichannel experience, we here onward aim for all our applicants to get access to One Vasco’s dedicated student and other specialist services, together with the LeverageEdu promise”, said Akshay Chaturvedi, the company’s Founder & CEO.
“We are delighted to be working so closely with Leverage Edu and join them in seeking to improve the student journey for every single prospective student who wishes to study in a university away from their home country. We recognise also that obtaining a visa is the final step in a long journey for the student and also for their families. Yet whist it is the last step in a process, it is also the start of a ‘dream’ to study overseas. Our responsibility is to ensure that we remove the friction from that visa application process, using our deep expertise and experience to guide and assist the student to prepare an application that is as free as possible of any feature that might attract an avoidable refusal. We look forward very much to providing such a service to each and every one of Leverage Edu’s students”, said Dusty Amroliwala the Chief Operating Officer of Student Services at One Vasco.
