PlattForm Acquires UK-Based Outreach Education to Create a Complimentary Study Abroad Placement Service


LENEXA, Kan. – (Nov. 20, 2013) – PlattForm Inc. acquired U.K.-based Outreach Education on October 17. Outreach Education will provide complimentary consultative and placement services to students looking to pursue their education abroad. These services will be provided as part of PlattForm’s series of international student recruitment fairs, collectively called The Student World.

Outreach Education is a referral-based business that has established relationships with 25 universities around the world. Its mission is to connect the right students with the right universities to create educational opportunities students may not have in their home countries.

Managing Director of The Student World, Marcel Dalziel, said, “To provide students with the relevant support when deciding to study abroad, it was necessary for us to explore what other services we could provide to help them. We knew we had to work with a partner who had integrity, trust and experience, and Outreach Education [has] just that. It will be exciting to support students from enquiry to enrolment at an international university.”

The Outreach Education team has more than 30 years of combined experience in the international education sector. Team members understand the challenges institutions and students face when negotiating the complex world of transnational education. Joint founder of Outreach Education, Benjamin Ambrose, said, “This is a perfect partnership.

The team at The Student World [is] fully committed to empowering students to seize the growing number of international education opportunities open to them. They share the same high standards of professionalism and commitment that we have become known for. We are excited by the opportunity that this partnership offers in helping thousands of students enhance their career prospects by studying at an institution outside of their own country.”

The Student World will be in London at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, March 22, 2014, and in Leeds at Royal Armouries Museum on Sunday, March 23, 2014. This will be the first event in which The Student World and Outreach Education will join forces to provide complimentary advice and placement services to thousands of students across the U.K. For more information regarding these events, visit
