This startup empowers students to pursue a global education and career

After the pandemic-related disruption, the international education market has entered an exciting new phase. Worldwide travel has largely resumed, and the most sought-after universities are welcoming students back to campus. As things slowly move towards a new normal, students looking forward to studying abroad are confident of boarding the flight to study at their dream universities and destinations.

According to the latest Cambridge International Student Destinations Survey, the UK, US, Australia and Canada are the four most popular destinations in the world for students to study abroad. According to the survey, greater awareness of international education and choice of course as well as broader career opportunities favor students’ decision to study abroad.

Studying in a foreign country is attractive, promising and a unique experience. Nevertheless, obtaining the coveted study place requires persistence and careful planning from the candidate – starting with the selection of the course and university. A two-year-old overseas education company tried to simplify this process by creating a one-stop digital platform that provides end-to-end services for overseas prospective students.

A one stop shop for studying abroad

Leap, which was founded in 2019 and now operates LeapScholar and LeapFinance, is South Asia’s largest online platform for study abroad. The company’s offerings include study abroad counseling, IELTS online coaching, visa applications and financing.

For the founders Vaibhav Singh and Arnav Kumar, the goal was to build a student-oriented and customer-oriented company that gives young and ambitious students access to high-quality global education. Singh and Kumar, both IIT-Kharagpur alumni, have created a unique platform to ensure academic success through a community-led approach combined with a full range of products for every student applicant’s need abroad.

Enable access to quality education

With almost 1.5 million members, the Leap community is one of the largest platforms for prospective students abroad worldwide. IELTS test preparation is one of the key offerings in Leap’s suite of products. The country’s leading educators help students pass the exam through LeapScholar’s IELTS preparation platform. As one of India’s largest online IELTS learning platforms, it has helped nearly a million students score in high bands. LeapScholar’s IELTS prep app has over a million downloads and is one of the most popular IELTS prep apps worldwide. The app offers many innovative features, including unique Speaking Rooms, a forum where IELTS applicants can practice their English with one another for free.

The advice center for university admission is also one of the central services offered by LeapScholar. Its 3,000+ advisors across the country help students make correct, informed decisions about their study abroad plans. LeapScholar’s Leap Advantage helps students gain access to quality global education through innovative offerings such as the College Credit Program (CCP) and the Twinning Program. The CCP enables students to get ahead of the game by earning half-price credits through courses with top teachers from Yale, Cornell, and MIT, among others. The twinning program enables students to begin their academic journey at a US university from India and then graduate with a Masters degree in the US. It offers a year of campus study experience and a work visa, which in turn translates into significant savings.

The company’s financial arm, LeapFinance, makes educational loans to aspirants based on their earnings and future potential. Up to 100% of the financing of education loans is possible through LeapFinance, with interest rates much lower than the prevailing interest rates in India. LeapFinance also offers students a US bank account along with a credit card, which helps students become part of the destination country’s financial ecosystem from day one. If you are looking for internships or jobs after graduation, LevelUp by LeapFinance through its mentors will help you find the most suitable people for a truly global career.

The study abroad market saw massive growth in 2021 and this trend is set to continue. As more students seek global education and careers, Leap continues to support them with its existing and upcoming innovative offerings.
