Saurabh Baid

Founder and Managing Director   

It is my honour as I introduce myself and my dream, Study Square to you!

My journey as an international education student was started in 2005, when I decided to pursue my MBA from LaTrobe University. As an individual, pursuing education abroad, I became well aware of the struggles students have to go through to get a chance to study abroad. With the struggles, grew my desire of wanting to make students realise their global education dream, while minimizing those hassles for them. 

I founded my first education consulting agency in 2008 which went on to become a global venture and has been one of the fastest-growing education agencies. After causing major ripples in my 12 years of experience in student services, I decided to further extend that commitment with my newest initiative, Study Square. 

We believe every student can study at the university and the place of their choice through our ethical partnership with the best global education providers. Our partnerships are from countries like Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, US & UK, with more on the way!

Our team is dedicated to providing the best service to students and our Institutional Partners with expertise, ethics, honesty and passion. As a member of NAFSA and QEAC as an individual, I have imbibed their values in all that we do at Study Square. We believe in working closely with students and guiding them towards realising their dreams of global education.

I want the students to know that your dream of International education can take flight with the right help and guidance. I also want to notify parents that your child can study at the university and the place of their choice through our genuine partnerships with the best global education providers and deserves the best of the education and nothing less. To all of the universities that we have partnered with, I would like to thank you for giving a chance to thousands of students in pursuing the best education possible.

I should say to all my fellow International education providers that we should work in congruence with the needs of students and improve their lives’ through honest guidance and a feedback system. 

I look forward to working with every student who wants to make his / her study abroad dream true and every individual who is committed to contribute in making international education accessible to students around the world.
