What we do

We are the world's first unbiased Digital Study Counsellor. We work with students from around the world to provide them with the right tools to make an effective university selection. We believe that for a student to succeed, they need to have a holistic match with their university - both within and beyond the classroom.

To do this, we developed a data-driven matchmaking solution to match students to their ideal university in the Netherlands based on their individual preferences. Not only in respect to academics, but it also their budget, personality and lifestyle.

  • Analysing trends on customer behaviour and provide recommendations for improvement
