Meet ApplyBoard China:
The Team Helping Chinese Students Study Abroad

2021 has been an eventful year at ApplyBoard and we’re just getting started.

Last month we celebrated six years of educating the world and just the other week we announced a Series D funding round, bringing ApplyBoard to a post-money valuation of C$4B ($3.2B US). Together with our recruitment partners and partner schools, we are striving to build a better future for international students, and making education accessible for all.

This week, we want to spotlight our efforts in China—including the rapid growth of the ApplyBoard China team over the past year—as well as announce the launch of our new ApplyBoard China website.

Helping Chinese Students Fulfill Their Dreams of Studying Abroad

ApplyBoard is committed to the success of our Chinese partners and the future of Chinese students. Since our inception, we’ve helped thousands of students from China and across the world find educational opportunities, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of our dedicated recruitment partners.

Despite the challenges faced by COVID-19, our team pushed forward to continue doing what they do best—support our recruitment partners and ensure students fulfill their dreams of studying abroad. 

Since 2020, we have dedicated more resources to support Chinese students and we will continue to do so. We have increased our China team to 15 members across Sales, Strategy, Customer Experience, and Marketing. In addition, we’ve also expanded the team in Mainland China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong, and Guangxi.

ApplyBoard has also introduced an exclusive program through our partnership with Renison College, University of Waterloo. The English – Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (e-STEM) program is a unique opportunity for students ages 13 and 19 to improve their English language skills while experiencing one of Canada’s most innovative universities, the University of Waterloo.

As we continue to grow our team, our commitment to helping students is strengthened through the support and dedication of our partner schools. They have participated in over 20 webinars since the beginning of this year, bringing you face-to-face with university and college representatives.
