Andrew Disbury

Director of the International Office

Other companies that do similar things as Hotcourses have contacted me, and I have had conversations with them, and at the end of those conversations I always feel more confident in the choice to go with Hotcourses.

Tim O’Connor

Associate Director of International

This is the second university that I’ve worked with Hotcourses at and it’s been a really positive experience for our campus, for comprehensive internationalization, and for our partners all over the world. It’s really a useful tool for all of us in this industry trying to attract new partners and new students.

Texas State University
Ryan Buck

Assistant Vice President for International Affairs

We’ve just taken advantage of the EMT product. We ran our currently enrolled students against the database in Hotcourses and we found that we had about 6% of our enrolled students had come through Hotcourses at one point in their admissions journey.

University of Findlay
Marty Bennett

Director, International Admissions and Services

The strategy is simple. It’s search engine optimization and it’s an essential part of any digital recruitment strategy. When students are searching for programs on local search engines, in native languages, we’re able to be found by those hidden prospects.

Centennial College
Greg Long

Recruitment Manager, International Digital Engagement

We have about 12 translated sites that engage students on a daily basis. Hotcourses took what we already had, which was all brand-aligned, and translated that into other languages. So that has been really great because that provides students with a seamless experience, just in another language.

Arizona State University
Lilian Clemente

International Communications Manager

It’s hard to find a vendor that is responsive and takes the time to learn about the institution to a point where they can craft a product that fits you well, and I think that Hotcourses has done a great job at doing that.

University of Hartford
Sam Skinner

Director of International Admissions

We’ve been with Hotcourses not quite a year, and we’ve been really happy with the results. We were fortunate to have 34 students that had applied because of our partnership with Hotcourses. Having worked with other vendors and products that was a pretty phenomenal number.

Southern Utah University
Nicole Funderburk

International Recruitment Coordinator, International Affairs

We’ve been very successful with Hotcourses. They’ve been tracking our success rate very recently and it turns out that, unbeknownst to me, we’ve had close to 200 students through Hotcourses.
