At Sannam S4, we are closely supporting our International university partners as they navigate the fall-out effects of COVID-19 on their day to day operations. We recognize that interactions with prospective students are a crucial component of the recruitment process and our partners must adapt to new ways of engagement, given the restrictions placed on large face-to-face gatherings.
To ensure that our university partners are continuing to interact with a range of students, Sannam S4 is partnering with Leverage Edu to host an online University Fair via their Uniconnect platform. Powered by Indian EdTech leader, Leverage Edu, this platform will enable our partners from six countries to directly interact with students through a virtual fair. The fair will have college booths, presentation halls, virtual campus tours, an opportunity to e-meet academics and alumni, understand right fit programmes, as well as apply for financial aid.
Sannam S4 is doing everything we can to drive normal business operations for our partners. Lakshmi Iyer, the Executive Director of Education at Sannam S4, said: “These are extraordinary times and at Sannam S4 we are looking at innovative ways to make sure our partner universities maintain high levels of visibility and also test out new ways of working as it will not be ‘business as usual’ when humanity emerges from this pandemic. We take our responsibility to our partners seriously to ensure that we are thinking about and bringing to them new channels and ways of working as every institution is impacted globally.”
Founder & CEO of Leverage Edu, Akshay Chaturvedi, added, “As a technology company, it is imperative to think about solutions that change the industry, or create new sub-trends within it. Our teams have worked extremely hard to bring this new platform, UniConnect, live in a record time, to make the maximum impact. I am all the more thrilled to be launching this with Sannam S4 that supports the highest number of institutions from around the world in India.”
The first of these fairs will go live on 4th April, for which over 35 Universities and hundreds of students have already come on board.
