The COVID-19 Higher Education Institution Snapshot highlights information drawn from a survey we launched mid-May and will be done every month in an effort to gather on-the-ground intelligence from our partner institutions to assist all our stakeholders (students, agents, in-country representatives, etc.) in effectively tackling the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The survey was launched across Sannam S4’s network of HEIs spanning North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. This snapshot presents the insights from a survey conducted from July 3 – August 2, 2020.
