Working as an INTERLINK Agent
INTERLINK International Institutes works in partnership with a worldwide network of agents and global partners. Together we recruit international students and professionals in need of English training, academic preparation, cross-cultural orientation, and professional development.
Since it’s inception in 1980, INTERLINK has trained thousands of students and developed a unique, project-based, experiential curriculum, inspired by learning theories, research, and practical applications. We are known for our innovative approaches and culturally enriching learning environments. We offer remote (online) classes as well as in-person classes at institutes located on the campuses of US universities: MSU, UNCG.

An INTERLINK Agent’s Role
INTERLINK enrolls students from all over the world. Many come to us through agents since agents play a pivotal role in preparing students for study abroad. Agent responsibilities include:
- explaining the program to prospective students, pointing out the pros and cons of attending a particular program or campus
- communicating student needs and questions to INTERLINK
- assisting with application submission
- explaining to students and supporting them through the visa procurement process
We look for agents that share our commitment to finding the right program fit for students.
INTERLINK follows the NAFSA ethical guidelines when working with agents and expects recruitment partners to do the same. Every INTERLINK agent must sign an agreement that holds each party to these guidelines.
Conditional Admission and American Consortium of Universities
As a member of the American Consortium of Universities (ACU), INTERLINK works closely with the member universities in the selection, placement, and academic preparation of international students. In most cases, these universities grant conditional admission to academically qualified students who need further English language study to qualify for regular admission. Further, TOEFL and IELTS test requirements are waived when students successfully complete the INTERLINK program.
Custom Group Programs
In addition to regularly providing quality English language training, academic preparation, cross-cultural orientation, and professional development opportunities, INTERLINK offers various tailored programs, including teacher training and short-term English for Special Purposes.
