Coronavirus Updates for China

Recommended Institutional Response

  • Speak regularly with your in-country staff. They can be working on conversion of inquiries, arranging virtual events, and digital marketing initiatives. See our Recruitment at a Distance webinar and/or guide for additional thoughts, or speak to your Relationship Coordinator at Grok for advice.  
  • To compensate for the problem some students are experiencing in sitting standardized tests, some institutions are beginning to temporarily or permanently accept a broader range of credentials- for example, the Duolingo English Test, InitialView or Vericant interviews, accepting various curriculums etc.
  • Grok clients have a range of benefits under Community Membership – now’s the time to cash them in. We’ll help you figure out how! One example could be using Concourse, sourcing students with specific credentials who may qualify for entry (or visas) despite not having standardized test scores.
  • We encourage you to show your recruitment partners that your institution is agile, flexible and willing to support them. 
  • Grok will continue talking to agencies and other recruitment partners, and will help to coordinate and relay information by posting the information in the comments section below.

We will continue to share updates below in the comments…
