In the spring of this year, BridgeU celebrated its fifth birthday.
In the past five years, we are proud to have grown our base of customers to secondary schools in over 100 countries.
We feel honoured to have helped thousands of counselors evolve their guidance programs internally and thrilled to have supported tens of thousands of students in making more informed decisions about their futures, inspiring them to be more global in their outlook and purposeful in their intentions.
From the outset, we set out to champion an approach to university and careers guidance that empowers students with all the information they need to map their strengths, skills and interests to a diverse range of post-secondary pathways. What’s more, we realised we could equip students with reliable data to help them align their career interests with the needs of a labour market that is changing rapidly.
We began with the belief that guidance is most impactful when delivered from within the secondary school environment.
That’s why we built BridgeU to empower counselors, teachers and school leaders to design world-class guidance programs, powered through platform and supported with our whole school guidance curriculum resources and guides.
It’s been a remarkable journey to becoming the market leader in university and careers guidance for global secondary schools. And, while we’re proud of what we’ve achieved in the past five years, we’re setting our sights even higher for the next five.
With the launch of our BridgeUniversity customer conferences, we are curating a global community of leading school counselors from across the world and working together to set the professional development standard for international school college & career guidance.
We are evolving the range of post-secondary destinations we recommend to reflect the evolving interests of a diverse global student audience.
We are extending the capabilities of our platform so that counselors can leverage powerful insights about university admissions processes, as well as analyse the most important factors influencing student outcomes and success.
And for the first time, BridgeU Connect will offer universities the opportunity to discover, request visits and forge partnerships with BridgeU schools all over the world.
We can’t wait to share these new developments with you. Stay tuned!
