August Education Group
A Private Research Institute
Gathering and disseminating innovative research on Graduate Programs and International Education
August Education Group began in 2015, as the brainchild of Dr. Aparna Vashisht-Rota. Since its inception, the institute has been dedicated to research focused on bridging international education trends and impacts on institutions and individuals.
In this time of unprecedented change, accurate data on student trends and movements is paramount to adapting programming that meets the dynamic needs and socioeconomic decision-making of this population. Institutions are increasingly being tested for their program flexibility and robustness in mitigating health crises. The current COVID-19 pandemic has revealed a blaring gap in institutional preparedness for extended emergencies and has highlighted the need for more research into comprehensive intervention planning.
We now operate to produce novel research findings as well as to consult companies within the field of international education. Our aim is to equip companies, institutions, and individuals with the most current evidence for best practice moving forward in this increasingly global and complex climate.
