Hotcourses have entered the agency game with virtual agency services to Indian students through our brand new site, Hotcourses India.

Hotcourses India will be quickly merged into our current site for Indian students, Uniguru. The new responsive site, which can be browsed on all devices, will offer online support from trained counsellors to help students apply and enrol with higher education institutions overseas. Counsellors will be available through a variety of platforms including phone, SMS text, email, Skype and live chat to provide support at each stage of the journey.

Furthermore Indian students will be able to talk to one of said counsellors in person at one of the two brand new drop-in centres in New Delhi and Chennai.

Hotcourses CEO Mike Elms said: ‘With our Virtual Agency Service we can now provide specialist help to students and take them right through the application process. We are using technology to make the process faster and more helpful, with for example, interviews online with existing students studying abroad.’

While Virtual Agency Services is initially only available to Indian students, the services will be gradually rolled out to other local markets in the next two years. Meanwhile later this month, Hotcourses Abroad and the other local language sites will launch ‘Ultimate Search’ to help prospective international students find overseas courses which they are eligible for – keep an eye out for this when it launches in the final week of August.
