Flying Chalks is the first intelligent one-stop platform for international students worldwide; allowing students to seamlessly PLAN their overseas studies, benefit from SHARED experiences and CONNECT with others with ease!
For international students, they can benefit from shared information and experiences to plan their study abroad journey, as well as connect with other students for the support they need. When they are ready, they can apply directly to their desired universities through our platform.
For universities, they benefit from brand exposure and having a dedicated channel to promote their programs to potential students.
We launched the basic version of our platform (www.flyingchalks.com) in January 2016 which provided students with user-generated information on universities as well as allowing them to discover and connect with other international students for support. Our platform received an overwhelming reception. Within 6 months from launch, the Flying Chalks community grew to 2,000 students from more than 50 universities worldwide.
This market validation allowed us to raise our first investment from a venture capital firm – Expara IDM Ventures – in March 2016. The investment gave us the resources to expand our team and grow further.
Our product and services
The digital platform that provides international students with the information they need for their studies abroad and the community which they can go to for advice.
To support our digital platform, we also provide study abroad services that include:
– Free study abroad consultations
– Overseas university applications, VISA assistance & Accommodation placement
– Customized Study Programs
– English Summer & Winter Camps
When we first started, Flying Chalks was a fully digital company where we focused on building and operating our platform. However, as we grew, we realized that many of our students required assistance in other related areas such as preparing the necessary documents for their university and VISA applications, finding an accommodation, amongst many others.
In a short span of two years, we have expanded from our headquarters in Singapore to establish offices in South Korea and Vietnam. To date, Flying Chalks has built a network of 50 partner institutions in 17 countries and has an active community of 10,000 students from over 600 universities worldwide.
