We’re pleased to announce our partnership with Times Higher Education (THE), the trusted global data partner for higher education, to help improve the online experience for millions of prospective international students who are looking for trusted study abroad advice and guidance. 

By seamlessly integrating with the THE student platform, Akero will ensure THE can provide timely and personalised information to users relevant to where they are in the study abroad journey. Doing so will support students’ personal decision-making requirements as well as offering a better online experience.

We are really excited about our partnership with THE. With two major brands in the higher education sector coming together, this will have many mutual benefits, ensuring the content on THE’s student platform is tailored to what students truly want and need, and putting more users in contact with the right partner for their needs.

In addition, Akero will improve usability across the platform through the creation of tailored landing pages, content and effective customer journey mapping to help make the experience more user-friendly. This process will ensure that the information students receive is relevant to their stage of the study abroad journey, giving them the right tools to support them in their choices.

It is abundantly clear to us at THE that Akero is the best partner to work with to ensure that the millions of prospective international students who visit THE each year are given personalised support to find the right content and information for their study abroad needs, and are connected to relevant partners to help them make informed study choices that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
