Luke Nolan, Founder and CEO of Student.com, says : “Our strategic partnership with Studapart, a key accommodation platform in France, will enable us to respond to the growing demand from international students looking for student accommodation in France. Our amplified offering for what remains one of the biggest pain points for students around the world, finding the right student accommodation, should also encourage more foreign students in choosing France as a destination for their studies.”
A study abroad favourite for international students, France is a key market for Student.com, who have seen their number of French bookings double in just one year. Although most of the demand for studying abroad in France currently comes from China and Europe, Student.com hopes to see even more demand from other markets, especially as more tertiary-education programmes are being taught in English, as well as other factors like the strengthening of France’s strategic partnership with India.
“Our collaboration with Student.com will enable us to combine our areas of expertise in order to reach our common objective – to facilitate the student journey when it comes to finding accommodation with a free, secure and user friendly solution. We will also now be able to respond to demand from our students who are going to study abroad.” says Alexandre Ducœur, Co-Founder and CEO of Studapart.
