(LONDON): INTO University Partnerships, a leading international education organization, has entered into a collaboration with Cialfo to engage hundreds of thousands of prospective students across the world.

Cialfo is a global platform that connects school pupils aiming to study abroad with higher education institutions.

The initiative will enable INTO’s partner universities in the US and UK to not only engage with over 250,000 international students within the Cialfo network, but also receive, manage and track applications from these students via Cialfo’s Direct Apply portal.

INTO’s university partners in the US will go live on the Cialfo platform during the collaboration’s first phase in September, starting with Oregon State University and George Mason University, while INTO’s UK partner institutions will start using Cialfo during the second phase of the agreement.

Since its inception in 2005, INTO has helped more than 130,000 students from 190 countries achieve international degrees in US and UK institutions.

Cindy Tan, INTO’s Chief Recruitment Officer, said: “We are very excited to bring INTO’s leading universities in the US and UK close together with Cialfo’s unique student community and high school counsellor network. This will open new gateways for students around the world to achieve their study abroad goals.”

Cialfo is an AI-driven digital platform used by students and counselors across 100 countries that helps them navigate every step of the university application process. This involves researching potential institutions of interest, completing assessments and surveys, setting up meetings, tracking tasks and deadlines, selecting schools, attending virtual college engagement events, and ultimately, submitting final applications directly to institutions or programs of choice through Cialfo’s Direct Apply portal.

“We are thrilled to partner with INTO – one of the world’s most notable international education organizations,” said Cialfo CEO and Co-Founder Rohan Pasari.

“We are excited to help INTO’s partner universities engage with more qualified students and extend their global reach.”
