The WorldGrad, one of the largest hybrid overseas education programs platforms has raised funding from Online Education Services (OES), Australia. OES’s investment in The WorldGrad is set to propel the growth of the platform and enable more students to study abroad at leading universities. The capital raised in this funding will enable The WorldGrad to increase its market presence across India, aid in the growth of its team as well as expand its program and partnership offerings. Unlike most study abroad platforms, The WorldGrad enables students to complete a part of their overseas degree on the online platform and finish the rest on-campus abroad. The organisation has achieved an overseas progression rate of 100% for students who have gone on to study via hybrid overseas programs thus far.
OES is a renowned online education enabler headquartered in Australia. OES has been at the forefront of innovative higher education for more than a decade. The investment in The WorldGrad will accelerate OES’s capability and showcase a commitment to online education enablement on a global scale.
