BYJU’s The Learning App is going global. BYJU’S will first venture into English-speaking countries and then foray into the pan-Asian market in due course.
The Middle-East Footprint
BYJU’S is already a well-known and popular EdTech brand in the GCC (Gulf Co-operation Council) countries. BYJU’S currently has learning programs for math and science for students from grades 4 to 12. Overwhelmed by the response in the GCC region, it is planning to launch programs in more subjects and other languages like Arabic soon. They host one of UAE’s most prestigious quiz contest- The Star Quiz Challenge. The Star Quiz Challenge is open to middle school kids residing in UAE, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
The 10th season of The Star Quiz Challenge commenced in September this year, and it is conducted completely online and composed of three rounds of quizzing. A weekly topper will be awarded a PS4 and the ultimate price, an Alienware gaming laptop is reserved for the winner of the grand finale.
Through WhiteHat Jr, their recent acquisition, BYJU’S plans to introduce math learning programs as part of their initial offering in countries like Australia, New Zealand, UK, Singapore, and Germany.
The plan is to have the world’s best educators, teachers and mentors conduct classes on BYJU’s app. Native English speakers and teachers of repute from different geographies will conduct classes on the app.
