Frequently asked questions

Why is it free?

Since BridgeU was founded, it has always been our mission to help every student find their best-fit global opportunities. Our new pricing model provides both free and paid services, and we are also partnering with a growing number of universities that highly value involvement in the BridgeU community. The revenue we generate from these two sources makes it possible to offer the core BridgeU platform to schools free of charge.

What’s included in the free version?

We’re pleased to say that we do not limit access to any feature to schools or school groups using the free version of BridgeU. Every faculty member and student across the group has access to their own account and will our full range of features. They can even take part in exclusive events and join our online community!
