INTO is committed to expanding higher education and career opportunities for students across the globe, working with a network of university partners to provide support for international students from enrolment to employment.
Prospective international students visiting the THE website who are interested in studying in the United States will be able to opt-in to receive free support from INTO to help them through each step of the pre-arrival journey, from finding the best fit university for their study abroad goals to providing support from professional counsellors to help prepare them for life on campus.

INTO becomes THE’s 17th student partner following a number of partnership announcements in recent weeks. This aggregation of trusted partners supports THE’s plans to provide holistic support to the millions of prospective international students visiting its website every year with ambitions of studying abroad.
