Rest Of The World

John Smith International export books, technology and expertise worldwide.

Welcome to JS International, one of the world’s leading export booksellers and library suppliers.

The JS Group was established in 1752 and routinely supplies book and services to students and institutions in more than 70 countries.

Our award winning Aspire system is designed to help sponsors and stakeholders manage limited student funding by channelling their allowances to the materials and services that are vital for their academic success.

A recent study undertaken by the Association of Members of Student Services in Higher Education (AMOSSHE) indicates that students who are able to acquire their books and learning materials are far more likely to succeed than those that do not. However, stakeholders and funding agencies in Higher Education routinely miss the opportunity to ensure that their students are properly equipped and able to maximise their opportunities while at University. You can read the full report here.

Our Aspire Bursary management system, supported by JS International’s retail arm could make a huge difference to your student’s outcomes and ultimate success.
