MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HIGHEREDME

More about how it works (4)

We don’t sell it. We don’t publish it without your agreement. And for each time a school is interested in you, we ask you before sending your contact information.

When you create an account on HigherEdMe, you have to answer a series of questions that will create your first study abroad wish. This wish is published on the ‘School’ side of HigherEdMe. It’s mean that the Schools and Universities registered on HigherEdMe can see it.
If your wish and profile is a match for them, they can contact you through HigherEdMe with a message called ‘offer’.

When a school sends you an offer, you are notified by email and SMS. At this point, you have two choices:

  1. You are not interested = nothing happend
  2. You are interested = your contact information is sent to the school who contacted you and the school will contact you directly a bit later.

Schools and university have dedicated accounts that allow them to see published wishes. They can filter them by destination choice, or study fields for example.

Budget and Scholarship (5)

For the time being, HigherEdMe offers no scholarship to go abroad. We have hope to create one in the future. Don’t worry, when it will happen, you will be alerted.
To help students that need one, we have created a website dedicated that list Scholarship tweets in all the world.
www.thescholarsheep.com

Go to www.thescholarsheep.com, and discover our dedicated twiter account about Scholarships.

The budget is an important matter for a lot of Schools and Universities.

You have to be precise about two elements:

  1. We ask you to declare the amount that you actually have in your possession, or that you know you can have without any scholarship (except if you already have the scholarship confirmed).
    Don’t be afraid to declare a law budget, we have schools that offer scholarships that will contact you.
  2. The other elements to take into account when calculating your budget for a specific country: potential tuition fees, the cost of living, the cost of housing and travel costs…

We don’t know. HigherEdMe isn’t in charge of those questions. It is different for each school and university registered on our platform.
HigherEdMe goal is to connect you with their recruiters after it’s between you and them 😉

HigherEdMe is free to use for students and futur students who are looking to study abroad.

Destination (3)

Schools and Universities from all over the world are registered on HigherEdMe. When creating your wish, you can select a continent and then a country but it’s not an obligation.

HigherEdMe’s goal is to offer to you the more chances to go abroad, so we can only advise you to limit you to one country and to broaden your view! You can make multiple wishes, at least 3. Use those 3 wishes wisely!

Maybe you will be lucky and receive offers that will match your wish. Remember, HigherEdMe is completely free to use and you can create up to 3 wishes and choose to go anywhere in the world, on a specific continent or a specific country.

On HigherEdMe, at first, you can’t choose a specific University or School to be in contact with. The first step is up to the Schools and Universities.

If you already know where you want to study, and it’s nowhere else. Go, contact them directly, you don’t need us. But if you want to have alternative choices, HigherEdMe is there for you!

We don’t know. HigherEdMe isn’t in charge of those questions. It is different for each school and university registered on our platform.

Like tuition fees, this matter depends on each School and University. They all have their own criteria and way to select students.

Once you’re in contact with them, they will tell you what is required to follow their programs. If you have doubt or questions, don’t hesitate and ask them.
