Product Update: applying to IBCP-friendly schools through the BridgeU matcher

BridgeU’s university matcher already enables students to apply to a wide range of global university destinations and tailors its recommendations to applicants’ relevant subject/personal interests.

We’re pleased to announce that students working towards the International Baccalaureate Careers Programme (IBCP) can now use our University Matching tool to explore relevant higher education pathways. 

How BridgeU can help your IBCP students

IBCP students can now input their predicted/target grades into the BridgeU Profile builder. This in turn will allow students to gain a better insight into IBCP-friendly destinations through the University Matches tool as they research the institutions and courses which are right for them.

Not only can students better tailor their current IBCP studies to relevant global universities and courses, but your school guidance team will be able to more accurately benchmark the success of your IBCP applicants over time.

Note: BridgeU does not currently have sufficient data to calculate chances of acceptance for IBCP students applying to relevant universities.

How IBCP students can find relevant university destinations 

Step One – Using the Profile Builder 

If your students are working towards the IBCP, then they can build their profiles and search for prospective university destinations in the usual way. Students need only click on the Profile Builder and enter the section marked ‘Education’ to enter their relevant qualifications.

They will next see the screen which says “Add your target grades”. When prompted to add a new grade, students will now be able to see the International Baccalaureate Careers Programme included in the list of options.

Students can then choose their course type and add their target/predicted grades. Once this is done, students can then proceed to researching university options.

Step Two – University Matching 

Having populated their profile with their relevant IBCP courses and predicted grades, students can now view their recommended destinations through the University Matches section. BridgeU currently offers potential matches from a list of universities we know have been accepting or considering applications from IBCP students.

By clicking the ‘Shortlist’ button, students can then add chosen IBCP friendly universities to their shortlist page.
