A CIRENCESTER businessman is attempting to transform the way international students find their university abroad.

Chris Morling has co-founded Studee with his friend Simon Andrews to tackle the 'outdated' methods international students use to enrol.

Studee has advisors who speak to students, guiding them every step of the way from application to enrollment. Studee will also plant trees for every student they enrol, to contribute towards absorbing the CO2 released into the atmosphere each time they fly to their chosen university.

Chris said: “Studee is reinventing the way international students find a university by making it simple and deeply personalised whilst adding transparency in an industry which in recent years has sadly suffered some corruption and has largely ignored the climate crisis.

“Education is the most powerful way to change the world but I’m also addressing the elephant in the room - the fact international education has negative consequences for our environment."

“So for every student we enrol, to contribute towards compensating the CO2 released when students fly to their chosen university, we’ll pay for trees to be planted on their behalf.

“Our goal is to plant one million trees over the coming years and transform the way international students find their dream university abroad.”

In 2008, Chris founded financial comparison site money.co.uk.

In January 2017 he was dubbed “Britain’s Best Boss” when he spent £3 million on renovating Cecily Hill Barracks, a former Victorian fort, into the ultimate office. In September 2017 he sold the company for £140 million to ZPG plc.
