Sadiq Basha, CEO and founder of Edvoy is originally from Chennai, India and was an international student. He completed his Masters' degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Greenwich, London UK. His passion in business was born out of the need for honest advice for international students to help them achieve their study abroad ambitions.

Edvoy was established to centralise information for students so they are empowered to make the best possible decisions about their future. Dedicated counsellors guide students through their application process from choosing the right course to applying for a visa. Edvoy’s app is free and uses remote counselling, so is available for students worldwide.
