what makes us different

01

Made for International Students

Studying abroad is a very unique experience. We continuously build tools that serve the needs and improve the experience of international students and schools in the world.

02

We are not a marketplace

Although we are building new smart tools to give students easy access to the things they need, we are not a marketplace. We don’t do advertising and we ban any user attempting to do recruiting. 

03

Only things that add value

We provide free private communities to schools because we have been in the shoes of the students and we understand the power of belonging, the importance of making new friends and the life changing experience of exploring the city with the schools activities.

04

Open community

Students can also meet other students in the city (outside their school) and potentially join open events that match their interest. The bigger the community the more opportunities of value that we all can create for our students.

IT COST NOTHING TO GIVE A LOT

Why we are free

When students connect with other students and their activities earlier in their experience (and even before traveling) it:

  • Reduces the levels of anxiety and uncertainty of going to a new country

  • Avoids depression and homesickness resulting in lowering dropout rates

  • Improves the overall experience

 

By keeping a free private group for each school we ensure all students have the same opportunity of belonging and connecting when they travel abroad.

taking part at AMYTY

During the first quarter of 2019 we will be launching multi-angle awareness campaign to Student Agents worldwide. Our hope is that with their guidance students can start meeting other students in their destination city and school even before they get on the airplane. 

 

Our immediate goal is to build a base of current students in each school. New students then will be able to connect with existing students.

 

If your school is not listed in our app please contact us at info@amyty.co

MAKING IT EASY FOR YOU

 

Looking for ways to save schools time and money these are some of the initiatives we are doing that have shown successful:

 

  • Invite us to your Orientation Day. We will start conversation with students without distracting nor disrupting the orientation process.

  • Send us your activity calendar. It can take some time to upload each activity in our system, let us do it for you.

  • Let us know your challenges to build the best tools for you

Words from our CEO

Jimmy Battaglia

Founder and CEO - AMYTY

AMYTY is a dream come true yet with a long way ahead. After almost a decade working in the international education industry and after being an international student myself (ESL + Higher Education), I learned the importance of connecting at the right time with the right people and the impact in the student’s mental health, personal development and  professional success.

 

In 2018 Canada brought over 500,000 international students, and while studies show the alarming increase of international students seeking mental health services and 66% of students feeling “very lonely” in the past year, presenting a solution that help students connect and socialize doesn’t only make sense but I strongly believe is the HUMAN THING TO DO.

 

However, reaching our vision requires the participation of all key players in the international education industry, specially Agents and Schools. 

Understanding the challenges on competition and recruitment and giving priority to students´ (user) experience we decided to launch free private groups for each schools and restrain from accepting any advertising. We went further and decided to closely monitor every post to make sure there are no recruiting efforts being done and banning those who try.

While growing AMYTY, the first open smart community for international students, we are also creating new tools using the latest technology that will allow streamline processes and solve common headaches to students, agents, schools and even government bodies. While these services will have a cost, we will keep the schools communities free for you to engage with your students and help them socialize.

 

Please feel free to reach out to me at jimmy@amyty.co to tell you more of the incentives we are offering schools for actively participating with AMYTY, talk a bit more of what we are doing and specially learn more of your challenges and how we could solve them.
