Where google may prove to be cumbersome, Collegedunia is the one stop destination for seeking educational information. Launched recently, it is a portal owned by 3.14 Digital based in New Delhi, with an aim of making the pre-admission process of choosing and judging an institute easier by curating the best possible data. Given the competition in the education sector, a website like collegedunia was a necessity.
For a student searching information on higher education, cutoffs, number of seats, institute ranking and affiliation are some of the key criteria to pick the right college. However, finding detailed information on colleges is strenuous with the college data dispersed all over the internet. Spotting this huge gap in the data being provided and the quality of information, founders of collegedunia seized the opportunity and came up with a portal to bridge this information gap. The aim of this portal is “to fulfill a vision of empowering students with knowledge so that they make a wiser decision while choosing their career and alma mater.”
The website provides an extensive search engine for students seeking higher education in India and abroad. It is a search engine that provides data based on what you are looking for in colleges instead of what they want you to see. The data is categorised according to streams like management, law, engineering, architecture, medicine, etc. Further, the colleges can be filtered depending on location, ranking, ratings, fees and cutoff for different competitive exams. Each college page has a detailed information of review, images, videos, fees, ratings, brochures, placement companies hire at the campus, affiliation, approval, reservation, eligibility, Dean Information, amenities, application submission and broad description. If this comprehensive info still leaves a room for a query then they have an “ask a question to the counselor” button. The website also displays similar colleges on the institute page for an easier navigation. The option of adding colleges to a shortlist makes the process of choosing the right college in the end easier. Furthermore, the website features a news feed that displays the latest news or announcements related to education.
The education portal has a simple and easy to use interface for a rich user experience. With a database of over 20,000 colleges and 6,000 courses, handling data so extensive is not an easy task but they are managing it wonderfully. If they maintain this quality and continue updating information, then collegedunia has a potential to become one of the top educational classifieds portal.
