Education Lighthouse provided excellent service at a time we really needed support. After one of our in-country staff moved to a new role, we needed someone to come in and operate as a member of our team at short notice. Education Lighthouse were able to offer high quality support within a couple of weeks: undertaking training, attending events, responding to enquiries and functioning as an extension of our existing provision in market, they ensured we didn’t have to cancel any of our existing commitments and were able to continue to deliver high quality provision for our prospects and offer holders. With their USA market expertise, positive approach to onboarding and rapid scalability, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing to build capacity in this market.
Director of Student Recruitment & Business Development, London Metropolitan University
Paul and the team at Education Lighthouse introduced me to so many great connections to help promote our visiting student program. They are such a great resource especially for those starting in a new market like us.
Agent Manager & Associate Director, VISP, University of Wisconsin – Madison
The University of Auckland works hard to live its sustainability credentials in all that we do in international student recruitment. That’s why we were so pleased to work with and to recommend Education Lighthouse to colleagues globally. When we needed help at short notice for European student recruitment, Raphael Benoist went above and beyond. Yes, he learned all about our university and our offer, yes he represented us with knowledge and flair at the Scandinavian fairs, but he also chose to travel overland by bus (!) and train rather than fly and so genuinely walked the walk on sustainability while flying the Auckland flag.
Deputy Director International, University of Auckland
We have enlisted the services of Education Lighthouse to help us develop our international recruitment. We appreciated their attentiveness to our needs and their ability to help us on this path.In my new position we will use their service to target partner universities in Europe for Erasmus mobility of my students.
Former Head of IPAG Online
I had the pleasure of working with Education Lighthouse to support our US recruitment efforts when we had some staff changes in the team. Education Lighthouse’s team was very knowledgeable about the US market and was always willing to go the extra mile. I was impressed by their professionalism and bespoke solutions. I would highly recommend Education Lighthouse for any of your international recruitment needs.
Deputy Head of International Recruitment, London Metropolitan University
I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Mullally in various capacities since 2007. Most recently, he and his firm helped Loyola University Chicago expand and diversify its international partnerships in order to more effectively recruit students into the University’s non-degree program for internationals. His efforts generated nine new, signed partnerships in the first eight months with another 10 at various stages of development. This resulted in a 71% increase in overall program enrollment in the first 18 months of our collaboration. The University would not have been able to expand to this degree, this quickly, without Paul’s insight, networks, and knowledge of the European market. The strength of the partnerships he facilitated was clearly evident, both in terms of continually increasing enrollments as well as the quality and depth of resulting relationships. Paul is forward-thinking, proactive, hardworking, and highly ethical. I would not hesitate to call on Paul again should the opportunity arise.

CEO, Global Study Partners Sydney Australia
I worked with Paul when I served as Associate Dean, International and Senior International Officer at California State University at Dominguez Hills. We started with a small number of international students and he provided help and support to grow our efforts effectively. His support was important for our efforts to develop a strategic plan to increase international student enrollments on campus, in particular through the enhancement of online and print marketing materials and the development of a global network of support for international student outreach, while maintaining a small outreach staff on campus. He is dedicated to the internationalization of higher education and has a strong network of colleagues around the world who value his positive energy and knowledge.
