Interstride has come to aid for the students
Interstride has come to the rescue to cater to the rising demand for U.S. Universities. The market’s one of the best digital platforms to help international proceed with their studies and complete their educational journey. The idea is to help U.S. universities enroll more students and increase their revenue.
Interstride helps to solve the burning issue of the country. It helps to accelerate the number of student enrollment and also the retention rate. Let us agree on one fact. Unless the number of international students increases in the U.S., the national economy cannot grow fast.
The interest rate has launched a mobile app with the latest features like:
Interstride has already collaborated with many universities in the U.S. The number has crossed 130 already. Some of the top U.S. universities that have enrolled with Interstride are the University of Georgia, University of Chicago, Harvard, Stanford, USC, University of Miami, Texas University at Austin, Duke, and the University of Tennessee. In 2016, Interstride had only a hundred students. But now the number has gone up to 750000.
International students are valuable assets of the country
U.S. international students contribute to the national economy of the country to a great extent. The 1 million international students generate almost 45 billion dollars in the country. And that is not all. According to the statistics, international students have launched around 23% of the billion-dollar companies in the U.S.
International students are indispensable for the growth of the national economy. But, under Trump’s administration, international students are facing significant hurdles in staying in the country. They are not even getting a chance to study in the country, and that is unfortunate.
International students are facing significant problems due to Covid-19
The devastating effects of covid-19 handshake in various sectors of the U.S. It has changed the social and economic scenario of the country. And all these changes have negatively affected international students. Millions of people have lost jobs. Trump had indeed launched the CARES ACT in March 2020 to help the unemployed people. But didn’t it didn’t cater to the problems of international students?
On the contrary, Trump made it impossible for international students to stay in the country. He imposed strict immigration laws, which made it possible for international students to remain in the country. Colleges want to admit international students, but they are unable to do anything.
In the last three years, the enrolment of international students has dropped. The recent report of a survey conducted over 600 US colleges showed that international students were unhappy with the cold treatment they received in the U.S.
Around 94% of the international students from 34 colleges believe that U.S. Universities could have given better opportunities to them to flourish their career.
Why is Interstride so popular?
Plenty of reasons have catered to the popularity of Interstride in the U.S. Interstride is not just behind money. They are also working hard for international students diligently.
They are only looking after international students’ daily needs and helping them grow and prosper in the country. One of the reasons why Interstride is working so hard is because they know the value that international students hold.
Benjamin Franklin once commented that investment in knowledge is a lucrative option as it gives the best interest. The best brains of the world come to study in the U.S. University. If the U.S. government offers adequate facilities to international students for finishing their higher studies, then the country will reap benefits in the long run. The country’s best brains can vote in the government’s research and development department and lead to pathbreaking discoveries. Other than that, they can work in the I.T. firms of the country and contribute to the country’s development. Many U.S. firms have already recruited international students in their firms. Many of them are facing visa problems due to Trump’s restrictive immigration policies. It is high time that the federal government does something for international students. Otherwise, they will lose both students and money in the long run.
Who is Interstride?
Interstride is an education technology firm that offers support services to both international schools and students. It provides various facilities to both students and the schools to make education fun and hassle-free.
Interstride contributes to the personal growth and career growth of international students. It works hard to fulfill the educational goals of the students and leads to their all-round development. International students can get access to data, networks, and insights in one platform.
Interstride has a strong network. It works with Universities, colleges, government officials, immigration departments, and service providers to pave the path to international students’ success. The extensive network helps them to provide every kind of facility to international students.
We need more technological companies like Interstride in the U.S. who understand international students’ values and work for them. Unfortunately, international students have suffered a lot in 2020 without any fault due to the pandemic. Now, it is high time the U.S. government does something for them. It can solve any problem with students quickly.
Biden has a lot to do in the next four years. First, he has to take care of the burgeoning student loan debt in the country. Next, he has to bring new immigration rules that permit international students to stay in the country and work here for a long time.
Third, he has to bring favourable rules in the education sector to attract international students. Otherwise, the frail national economy will take more time to recover. It will take some time for sure for Biden to do everything using his executive power, but until then, Interstride will take care of the demands of international students.
