Who we are
Who we are
Like many good stories, this one starts with 2 friends in an unlikely place. Rohaan is from Namibia. Kasper from Belgium. We first meet at an international school in eSwatini in 2012 with high expectations of our ensuing university experience. We decide to follow different paths, yet find ourselves equally overwhelmed by the pressure and uncertainty that such a life-changing decision would bring with it.
So we invented a new way for today’s bright young minds to make the right choice. In 2019, The Discov was born.
What our students say
"As someone who has studied internationally before, I can say I had to learn the hard way that choosing a university should be so much more than just considering the prestige of a school. In considering a Master's in the Netherlands, Discov made the process easy and really took into account the "extras" that are essential to making sure I would feel comfortable in a new university environment. Personally, I knew lecture quality, diversity, and budgeting mattered to me. Discov broke it down simply and gave me information that I wouldn't have been able to find online."
