Over 50 universities and colleges, across Canada and the United States, are now using the International Student Barometer™ (ISB), our benchmarking tool measuring international student satisfaction. 

We work with individual universities to survey their international students, on everything from the arrival experience to academics, and benchmark the results against other schools in the U.S. and around the world.
