The Canada India Education Council (CIEC) and Agints.com today announced a strategic alliance to bring transparency, integrity and accountability to the student recruitment market and enable Canadian colleges & universities, as well as students, to connect with reputable education agents via peer [academic] & student reviews of education agencies.
As part of its CARE Initiative (Canadian Academic Advisors Representing Excellence), CIEC conducts academic reference checks and now publicizes the CARE Agents’ average score in key areas on the CIEC website. This allows academic institutions across Canada the means to conduct peer-reviews of education agents and solidifies CARE Agents’ commitment to ethical and quality student recruitment.
Agints.com is a new website providing student reviews of education agents as well as a listing of the institutions they represent, the professional bodies they belong to, and the industry qualifications that they hold.
“Both CIEC, through its CARE program, and Agints.com share very similar goals – we want to improve the quality and transparency of the services provided by education agents. It made perfect sense to team up.” said XXX of Agints.com
“By accessing academic and student reviews, education agents and students can accurately gauge CARE agents’ professionalism, ethical standards, and knowledge of the Canadian education system,” CIEC’s CEO Husain Neemuchwala said.
“We are excited about the partnership with Agints.com because it gives our CARE Agents (Agent Members) a way to promote their business and CARE membership more widely. It also benefits our Academic Members and other academic institutions across Canada.”
