Since 2009, education institutions around the world have trusted Flywire to deliver their students’ tuition payments quickly, easily, and securely. While solving payment challenges is a major part of what we do, it’s not the only reason why our partners choose to work with us. Here are just a few of the ways we deliver value to education institutions and students:
- Making education accessible for more students
Your institution understands that it’s challenging for international students to make tuition payments. At Flywire, we solve these challenges to make education more accessible for students around the world.
Chinese students are one example of a large international student population that benefits when their education institutions partner with us. Currently, Chinese students represent the largest percentage of the international student population worldwide. Flywire processed roughly 1 million payments from Chinese students in 2016 alone. That wasn’t always the case, however. As recently as a decade or so ago, the ability for Chinese students to leave their home country and pursue an education in places like the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, and even Japan, was an experience reserved only for the very wealthy. Since then, the demand for higher education overseas has increased, but the emerging middle class continues to face challenges facilitating payments to their college or university.
At Flywire, we help relieve the costs associated with making international education payments from China and most other countries around the world. We also make the process easier and more transparent, all while enabling students around the world to make tuition payments in their local currencies and with familiar payment methods.
