With a new application cycle set to begin in August, we know it’s more important than ever that students and international school counsellors get the highest quality user experience as they use BridgeU to plan, prepare and send their applications to universities worldwide.  

With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce a number of changes to BridgeU for our schools in China, designed to improve the speed and efficiency of the platform.

This change to a new domain brings with it other benefits, which we'll explain in more detail below. 

User data will be stored on servers based in mainland China

If you’re a user working or studying at one of our international schools in China, your user data will now be stored on servers based in mainland China. 

We are also ensuring that BridgeU is compliant with the new PIPL regulation, ensuring that any data we hold on Chinese citizens and residents is only used or transferred across borders with the permission of the owner of that data (your school will receive, or may have already received separate email correspondence from us about this). 

BridgeU will now be faster for international schools in China

The move to a new, China-based domain means that our international schools in China will enjoy faster page loading speed. Counsellors and students in China will enjoy an improved user experience during the busy application season. 

If you’re an adviser or student currently working or studying at a BridgeU school in China, please don’t hesitate to contact your Customer Success Manager or reach out to us at with any questions you may have.
