Kyra has found BridgeU to be an intuitive platform for students applying to the UK, with features such as the Strategy Adviser helping students plan and prepare their UCAS Personal Statement. She quickly integrated BridgeU into her university and careers guidance programme. Students were required to log in to the platform during their one-to-one meetings with Kyra and were set deadlines for compiling their final university shortlists within the platform. She explains how BridgeU’s ability to calculate chance of acceptance has helped students to be more realistic in their university shortlisting – “BridgeU has helped students to apply to more realistic target and insurance universities”.
Kyra also used BridgeU as part of the foundation of a policy document between the school and students, laying out expectations and deadlines to students during the university application process. Students are given ultimate responsibility for the completion of certain tasks within the platform, and are therefore encouraged to take ownership of their own applications.
Kyra was able to rely on the support of the BridgeU Customer Success team as she embedded BridgeU in the Aloha College guidance programme. She notes that the whole team have been ‘approachable and efficient’ whenever she’s needed help with the platform – for example, adding a cut off deadline for student’s university applications, so that they couldn’t shortlist any more universities after a certain date and time.
