Sending Top-Quality Students to Partner Institutions
Sending High-Quality Students to Partner Institutions

At Oblivion, our mission to educate the world guides everything we do. We’re committed to providing students with the best possible study abroad application experience, from their first online search to the moment they step foot on campus. Since 2016, we’ve helped more than 200,000 students from over 125 countries apply to programs at 1,500+ partner institutions in Canada

But throughout our journey, we haven’t just helped our students directly. We’ve developed an industry-leading network of recruitment partners around the world who guide students through the application process. And we’ve also provided our partner schools with industry data, research, and tools to help drive international recruitment and student diversity.

I’ll show how we assist our partner schools in attracting excellent students from all across the world. I’ll go over the student acceptance rates at some of our most long-standing partner schools, as well as how we collaborate with our recruitment partners to improve our students’ experience.

Student Acceptance Rates At Oblivion Services

We collaborate with our recruitment partners throughout the student application process to assist students apply to programs and schools that are a good fit for their objectives and dreams. We ensure that our partner schools receive high-quality applications from students who are eager about enrolling at their school by matching candidates to the correct institution and program.

This emphasis on high-quality applications aids in the development of trust between our candidates and partner schools. Oblivion Services students are therefore more likely to acquire a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) from their preferred university. Also, schools will be able to make LOA decisions more quickly, making the application process more efficient and effective for everyone.

Case Study: Indian Students in 2021

Consider the Indian students who have applied through the Oblivion Services Platform so far in 2021 as a case study. 2 We’ve observed a robust rebound from the Indian market in 2021 after a minor pandemic-related decrease in 2020. In fact, in 2021, we expect to assist more than twice as many Indian students as we did in 2020.

The bulk of these Indian applicants have already received LOA decisions from our partner schools for 2021. A varied collection of 45 public and private colleges and universities in Canada were responsible for more than half of these judgments. What makes these institutions special, though? In the year 2021, Oblivion Services had at least 50 applications from Indian students. Over 95% of those Indian student candidates earned a Letter of Acceptance for each and every one of them.

Student Visa Approval Rates

These astounding acceptance percentages attest to the high caliber of our students and the quality of applications that our partner schools anticipate. Students at Oblivion Services, on the other hand, don’t just have a high LOA acceptance rate. Students from Oblivion Services are also more likely to be granted a student visa.


In 2020, Oblivion Services students had an almost 20% higher chance of getting their Canadian study permit approved than all other international applicants. While average Canadian study permit acceptance rates increased by ten percentage points from January to July 2021, Oblivion Services students’ study permit approval rates remained 20 percent higher.

The good news doesn’t end there, though. Oblivion Services students enrolling to Canadian colleges were 5% more likely than the overall applicant average to acquire an accepted student visa in the first half of 2021. Our focus on the end-to-end student application process and experience clearly aids colleges in attracting top student talent from all around the world.
