As a Designated Learning Institution (DLI), here are your benefits when partnering with us

Competition for international students is fierce. The post-pandemic rising tuition fees, the perception of Canada as a cold country, and the uncertainty of obtaining study permits make it difficult for DLI’s to attract and retain students.

You may have many potential students interested in your programs, but how many actually end up enrolling?

Most likely you receive promising qualified leads from students who fulfill all requirements to enroll in one of your programs. You may leverage various sources such as online advertising, social media campaigns, student recruitment agencies, educational fairs, and partnerships with foreign institutions.

But unfortunately, a high percentage of prospective students are ultimately unable to study in Canada due to a refused study permit application. Does that sound familiar to you? It is understandable that you are frustrated as this seems a situation beyond your control.

Here is how we can help you meet your enrolment goals and generate more revenue:

We are not a standard international student recruitment agency, that limits itself to only market your programs through our worldwide pool of potential students. Rather, we are an international student recruitment agency that also offers assistance with study permit preparation and submission since we have a licensed immigration practitioner on board. And this makes a significant difference.

Before we even propose to candidates to apply for one of your programs, we will check their eligibility for the program of their choice, and for a study permit. We will make sure that they meet all deadlines. This results in us only proposing qualified leads to you: candidates who, once accepted at your institution, are very likely to be approved for their study permit, which ultimately means that they will enroll in your program, and they will pay their fees.

Your success is our success; therefore, it is in our mutual interest to focus on good-quality candidates.

Let us help you generate more revenue, enhance diversity on campus, and contribute to a more dynamic learning environment.

I would like to take the opportunity to say a big “Thank you” to Aportunita team, especially to Manuela who has been really supportive from the very first moment. Studying marketing was my dream and Manuela helped me find the best marketing program in one of the greatest colleges in Toronto, George Brown College. The whole process went super fast and my application was accepted in a record time. 

Working with Aportunita was the best decision I have ever made. Coming from such a pleasant experience, words are not enough how much I recommend Aportunita to everyone who is thinking of coming in Canada. Thank you so much Aportunita! Without you I wouldn’t have been able to make my dream of studying in Canada true.

Being an international student in Canada has presented challenges in the year 2021, when the cost of living was still a major concern. As a foreign student, I needed advice for many of the problems I encountered, particularly the educational system. By explaining how to proceed with the paperwork and how to get ready for school procedures, the advisors from Aportunita Company gave me the right guidance. In addition, they shared with me certain guidelines for living in Canada and things students should be aware of. And now they are advising me on how I should proceed with my work permit application paperwork. Overall, the company, particularly Ms. Faustina Kalaci and Manuela Vuckaj, assisted me with documentation and advice on how to achieve in school and in life here in Canada, which are necessary for an international student who arrives in Canada for the first time and faces challenges on a daily basis.
