The process of selecting a university is one of the most important research projects a student can do! As well as shaping their academic and professional future, it will also be their home for at least 3 years.
As you’ll know, at BridgeU we aim to empower students to make the best university decisions, by selecting places that will be a good fit for them - both academically and personally. We do this through our Intelligent Matching tool, which gives students personalised university and course recommendations based on their BridgeU profile.
However, we also want to provide an option for younger students who don’t necessarily know their destination preferences, subject choices or target grades, and just want to explore what’s out there.
That’s why we are pleased to introduce BridgeU Explore.
Using the new feature, students can learn more about the experience of studying in different countries, view the most popular universities in these destinations and see the courses that are offered. They can also search by subject to see which courses are available to them, along with a list of universities which offer these courses.
We hope the update will encourage students to jump in and begin the university research process from an earlier stage - leading them to be more informed and prepared when they select their subjects and set their target grades.
Here’s how it works...
