Eighteen months ago, I spotted Intcas and saw an organisation becoming a disruptor in a sector that has for too long relied on very long paper trails.
It is worth having a root around their homepages to see seamless compliance in action.
International study is a maze of uncertainty for both the international student and very often just as complex for the receiving institution.
A signatory to the Groningen Declaration I've been following Intcas's development closely as they expanded their global footprint
Intcas brings artificial intelligence into international student recruitment, this offers huge benefits for centres and for learners . Already affiliated to 500 global banks and connected to students and institutions across the world .The platform allows learners to explore, design and build their careers using a single system.
As an international recruitment officer, imagine a guaranteed pipeline of learners with authenticated entry qualifications, verified visa entry requirements and with the pre-verification that learner has the funding in place to meet their financial commitments . This including access to learners supported by national and other scholarship funds.
For the learner and their parents guarantees around the robustness of the degree on offer, and that an appropriate accommodation and support network is in place - including in some subject areas a clear pipeline to employment .
In the UK domestic market too a glimpse of a system that with a bit of thought could do much to re-invigorate a more unified approach to matching employers , awarding bodies and apprenticeships and refreshingly an organisation that is thinking about the expanding global market for both higher and further education.
Intcas will appeal to learners and their parents and schools , colleges and universities recruiting in the international market place around the world . It will be of direct interest to agencies and government departments and to global awarding organisations looking for a partner with the systems in place to with the systems in place to support their accredited institutions and learners
