Looking back on 2022 with Studyportals


As we look forward to 2023, we can’t help but reflect on 2022. Amidst the successes, challenges, tragedies and uncertainties, one thing remains constant: the power of education to change lives and shape the world’s future.  

We are SO grateful for your continued support to our mission to make education choice transparent, globally. This past year has brought many opportunities for us to not only reconnect with partners and students, but also to rebuild, and reimagine the student experience in this new world. 

Some highlights of the past year:  

  • We connected even more students to make an informed choice on the transformative power of higher education. In 2022 we were able to connect 52 million prospective students to over 4,000+ institutions. These students visited our portals from 242 different countries and territories, even including students from Nauru, Tuvalu and the Christmas Island!  
  • This year we were able to mark 203,000 confirmed enrolments! By FAR we are the most impactful international education platform or company. This is a number that means so much to us as we are working towards our big hairy audacious goal of ensuring no one misses out on an education opportunity due to a lack of information. This is also a great step in helping create the future peacekeepers of the world and the revolution we’ll need to ensure sustainability.
  • Our Global Access Initiative went from strength to strength as we, upgraded our scholarship platform to contain information on approximately 16 Billion Euros worth of scholarship opportunities, and launched a support database for students who were affected by conflict and expanded our work with UNESCO’s Global Education Coalition.
  • This year we were able to meet with Sidra Zahid who is leveraging her education to support people with intellectual disabilities and fight the stigma that they face in her home country of Pakistan. As the winner of our 2022 study portals international distinction award scholarship Idra was awarded 10,000 euros to pay for her masters in clinical neurodevelopment sciences at Kings College in London.
  •  We launched a partnership with Aon insurance so that students can not only find their dream institution but also know how to take care of themselves when they do finally make the choice to go abroad.   
  • We welcomed 54 new team members and we now have over 39 nationalities within our team. #diversityworks

2022 has been a year full of new experiences for everyone around the globe. We are so excited to see that higher education is moving forward and developing in order to bring so many students from around the world to their perfect program. We hope that these students will have the experiences to help them become the future peacekeepers of our world. 

Thank you for all your support and here’s to empowering the world to choose higher education in 2023.
