A London-based organisation that assists Indian students with their needs in a foreign country, including during pandemic lockdowns, and a New Delhi-based artificial intelligence (AI) enabled education marketplace are among the global educational bodies that have been shortlisted for prestigious higher education awards in the UK. The National Indian Students and Alumni Union (NISAU) the UK is nominated for three 2022 PIEoneer Awards categories, including Association of the Year, Student Support Award, and Outstanding Contribution to the Industry for its founder and chair Sanam Arora.
NISAU has been selected alongside a number of long-standing, institutional global sector representative organisations, including Universities UK International, which represents 140 UK universities; Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan), Canada, which represents Canadian public colleges and institutions; and English Australia, which represents 120 Australian colleges, according to NISAU UK. The nominations for the non-profit organisation are a testament to the meticulous and continuous work towards the welfare of the Indian student population in the UK, according to the organisation.
LeverageEdu, based in Delhi, has been named a finalist in two categories: Digital Innovation of the Year (Technology) for its Study Abroad with LeverageEdu App and International Student Recruitment Organization of the Year for its career guidance efforts. In the latter category, India’s KC Overseas Education is competing with LeverageEdu for the awards presentation on September 9 in London. Furthermore, New Zealand’s University of Auckland is competing for Marketing Campaign of the Year for its India Support Programme (ISP).
PIEoneer said in a statement that the PIEoneer Awards “honour innovation and excellence across the entire global education business.” The PIEoneer Awards recognise both individuals and organisations who are pushing professional standards, evolving their engagement, or rethinking the international student experience, with a distinguished judging panel representing geographical and professional diversity. The awards will be held for the sixth time in 2022, according to the announcement.
Janaka Pushpanathan, Director for British Council, South India, and Sonya Singh, creator of SIEC Education in India and Australia, are among this year’s global judging panelists.
