By : |July 30, 2019 0

Azent Overseas Education Limited, an online-offline EdTech Startup founded by Atul Nishar (Founder Hexaware Technologies Ltd and Aptech Ltd ) and his daughter Priyanka Nishar – an alumnus of Harvard Business School and Cornell University seeks to disrupt the overseas education advisory industry with extensive and effective use of innovative technology.

To study abroad is a life-changing decision for Indian students. They need impartial guidance backed by a good knowledge base and up to date information. Azent aims to offer these to the students by using modern technology like AI, data mining etc. Azent focuses on diverse offerings, providing students the best possible admissions guidance, while keeping in mind their strengths, to set them up for future success.

“Azent is structured as a Public Limited company. This is one of a kind as distinguished from the proprietary and partnership model that is prevalent in the advisory industry. We have planned an investment of INR 250 Cr in cutting edge technologies, building of products and offerings, acquisition and centre infrastructure.” said Atul Nishar, Founder, Azent Overseas Education.

Priyanka Nishar, Founder, Azent Overseas Education added, “Our students can access over 1200 universities across the world. We match students to the best possible universities where they will excel in their programs. Our comprehensive list of scholarships will guide students and further their possibilities.”

The Azent Edge

As an entrepreneur Atul Nishar, has been an industry leader in both Education and IT Sectors, founding companies which have established themselves both globally as well as in India. Priyanka Nishar(Founder), having studied at Harvard Business School and Cornell University is best suited to guide overseas education. Having worked with the Admissions Committee of New York University Stern School of Business, Priyanka understands what universities are looking for from their ideal candidates. This dual perspective coupled with use of cutting edge technology brings strong expertise in providing the right guidance to students.

Adoption of Digital disruptive technologies

With its unique online-offline business model, Azent aims at adopting digital means to transform education advisory and student guidance. Its technology-driven state-of-the-art centres in Mumbai, Thane, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru will help students in selecting the right course and university from over 1200 universities across the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland and Singapore. Azent will also help them get continued support with applications, visas and pre-departure processes.

With the effective use of technology, these services are not location-specific. As more and more students from smaller cities and towns decide to study overseas, many may not have the option of meeting experienced counsellors face to face without travelling to their nearest city or centre. For such students, Azent has an Online Counselling Centre, which offers the same one on interaction and attention, from the convenience of their own homes. Students have “Any time anywhere access” and with the assistance of proprietary tools and templates, Azent can support them seamlessly and effectively.

Azent offers immersive student experience and guidance through the use of Virtual Reality (VR) at each of its “Experience Centres”, which is a first of its kind for the overseas education industry. Students can experience university campuses in Virtual Reality, have their questions answered by India’s first admissions Chatbot, and meet with highly experienced counsellors to help with their decision making.
