(September 10th, 2021) Educatius Group AB has collaborated in MetLife China’s launch of “EduCare” which supports MetLife China’s clients with family members studying abroad in the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia. Educatius Group provides a variety of services to support students and their families through the application and onboarding process with educational institutions as well as ongoing support and care throughout their study-abroad experience.
“Educatius Group provides much more than an academic high school program. To be successful academically, students need to be safe and well taken care of in their living environment. The essence of what Educatius Group provides is support for international students when they are far from home, in a new environment, and living and studying in a new language,” said Paul McLaughlin, President of Educatius Group USA.
With the COVID-19 Pandemic adding new complexities to overseas education, the new service is designed to offer greater peace-of-mind to MetLife China customers and their family members looking to pursue study abroad.
“We’re excited to work with MetLife China – an organization that shares our commitment to helping families feel secure so they can live confidently and enjoy life’s experiences,” added Mr. McLaughlin.
EduCare launched on August 3, 2021, at a small event in Shanghai, where MetLife China’s Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Siyi Sun and Chief Marketing Officer, Robin Yao, both spoke. Although Shanghai’s COVID-19 restrictions limited in-person attendees, more than 300,000 people have viewed the launch event online, and the event was covered by Chinese media. Educatius Group’s Dr. Jason Zhao (Managing Director, China) was also on hand to introduce our dedicated Chongqing-based EduCare call centre for MetLife China clients.
