Study Group announced that the Agent Premier Club is designed to acknowledge and celebrate the success of top-performing education consultants and their outstanding contributions to international student recruitment.

The awards will acknowledge their role in supporting international students gain access to global higher-education opportunities, which meet their academic and career aspirations.
Study Group noted that agents play a key role in enabling thousands of international students to progress to Study Group pre-university pathway programmes at leading institutions in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the USA.
Earlier this year, Study Group announced that its international students studying online can request a full refund if they are not satisfied with their virtual learning experience.

The new awards scheme will feature four categories, which are Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
Study Group said its international student recruitment partners can contact their designated sales representative to find out details regarding how they can be eligible for the awards.
All finalists and winners will receive an invite to the first-ever virtual Agent Premier Club Awards Ceremony, which will take place in April 2021.
The winning organisation in each category will receive a plaque, certificate, and other prizes. Finalists and winners will also be granted full access to the Study Group Global Premier Club Advisory Council.
Members of Premier Club Advisory Council will provide feedback on student recruitment
Members of the advisory council will have the chance to network with other major international education consultancies to share expertise in a unique professional forum to inform business sustainability, development, innovation, and growth objectives.
The council will meet quarterly in 2021, along with key members of Study Group’s senior management team for bilateral feedback and contribution.
Confirming the development, Cassandra Ashworth, Executive Director of Global Sales at Study Group, said: “We are thrilled to introduce the Agent Premier Club Awards programme, created to recognise the brilliant efforts of the partners we work with to support international students to progress to the university programme of their choice.
“Due to the global pandemic, we realise that our agent partners have worked harder than ever to help international students access courses that meet their specific educational requirements.
“In a challenging external environment, we are amazed at what they have achieved this year and look forward to celebrating their successes through this brand-new awards incentive scheme.”
