There are many education portals when it comes to selecting a college for higher education. Most education portals provide a classified version of the information which is available on the college’s official website. There are very few websites who manage to provide quality information and guidance which help during the decision and selection process of a college. GetMyUni is one of the many education portals which brings in the user perspective to the basic information with reviews and discussion forums by students and alumni of different colleges.
When looking for ideas to start a business, the best place to look into is the problems faced during any personal experience or by people around you. The idea behind this website occurred to the founders of GetMyUni after they had a hard time trying to decide on a postgraduate college to pursue their higher education which was a real conundrum. They spent hours trying to research on various colleges making this a tiring and time-consuming process. In lieu of this experience, the founders deemed it be necessary for students aspiring higher education to have a place where they can get the basic information of the college like location, contact details, infrastructure and facilities, entrance exams, eligibility criteria for admissions, courses offered by the college and boarding facilities.
This information is also available on the official website so why would anybody visit the GetMyUni website. Here is why, first, this information is available on the college website over multiple web pages but with this education portal, this vast information is classified into a single web page making it easier for a student to navigate through information. For instance, if a student is interested in the studying MBA in Karnataka then there is a list of colleges on the basis of the review which shows the Best MBA colleges in Karnataka. Second, there are added features on the website. Apart from having classified basic information, this interactive education portal which has a review section, a discussion forum and the option to have a phone conversation with an education expert.
The discussion forum allows users to post a question with your name and email ID. And this will be answered by the website within a day’s time as mentioned on the website. In the discussion forum, the questions can be filtered by courses and categories like fees, entrance exams, placements etc. The review section of the website has reviews that are submitted by the current students and the alumni of the college. This is the section which makes the website very interesting. As it gives a student’s perspective on the website which may not be accessible to students in the real (offline) world. Altogether, the reviews create a compiled imagery of the college experience. To submit a review, the student or alumni have to fill in details about the college name, course and the graduating year. Then the user is prompted to sign up using their social media profiles. Now, the review can be written which covers various topics like entrance exam and admissions, placements and internships, fees and scholarships, academics and faculty, college infrastructure, clubs and associations and upload images.
Keeping up with the interactiveness of the website, a very helpful portion of the website is Talk to Experts where the students can fill in details about their interested college, course and provide their contact information.
