Times Higher Education (THE) has signed partnerships indicating their expansion into the student market. THE has announced agreements with Casita – a student accommodation market, and SI-UK – an international education agency. Both partnerships increase THE’s content from its academic audience to include the student market. THE aims to support international students with their global study options.

“This partnership will surely be a significant catalyst for THE’s new venture into the student market. Finding the right living environment during studies – particularly as an overseas student – cannot be understated in terms of the student’s overall success in their degree.”

Paul Howarth, CEO, Times Higher Education  

Partnering with Casita – who provide over 750,000 rooms in 27 countries – will offer students and university staff guidance at a time when Covid-19 has created market volatility.

“With THE’s global reach of university search and rankings, and Casita’s online distribution of high-quality purpose-built student accommodation, THE Casita partnership has unlimited potential,” 

Leigh Pulford, Chief Marketing Officer, Casita

THE’s partnership with SI-UK will offer combined resources – providing information, support and consultation services to international students who are looking to study in the UK – as well as offer free placements. And to offer on-demand video guides and micro-courses, THE has also partnered with online platform Libereka. This partnership will also offer various tools – such as scholarships on Blockchain and a Student Recruitment Marketplace.
