We are very excited to announce that we are rebranding the student Dashboard as your new Home page. With a fresh look and feel, simply find the Home page on the left-hand menu.

Search Bar

The global search bar at the top of your dashboard allows you to effortlessly search for universities, events hosted by the universities on your lists, and courses offered by various institutions you are interested in, streamlining your search process.


The "Profile" option on the Home page allows you to input essential details such as personal information, application specifics, university preferences, test scores, contact information, and extracurricular activities, while also displaying your assigned counselor; the more comprehensive your profile, the stronger your application and higher likelihood of university acceptance.

The student profile will also show the number of applications added to the student's various lists and the universities applied to.

University Road Map

The "University Roadmap" assists in achieving your university goals easily by filling in some important information about your university preferences, personal information and adding applications to your lists. This will also help you research destinations, careers and courses.

Recommended Universities

What if you have yet to begin your university application and you're not sure where to start? Or if you have begun your search but would like to see what are the other possibilities the world has to offer? Look no further!

Under the Personalized Recommendations section, take a peek at the different universities in regions that you are interested in applying to and explore the endless options available. These recommendations for universities are based on information that you have included on the platform to provide you with better options for a good fit. You may now edit your preference fit by clicking on the Edit icon in the top right corner of this section.

Discovery Center & Career

To discover careers that match your academic fit and preferences, you may look through the Suggested Careers for You section. From here, you could gain in-depth knowledge about the different careers that match your profile and find universities that offer courses for that career.

Careers are suggested to students based on Academic Fit and Saved careers. If there is no data available for a student, careers are shown based on the top saved careers for the country/region

Clicking on the “View All” link in the suggested careers section will bring you to a summary view.

In the summary view, you can choose from a number of filters:

  • Industry

  • Interests

  • Saved – this is where all the careers that a student saves will be shown

  • Great Fit

The discovery center is curated based on the preferences and interests indicated by the students in their preference fit (e.g. country and location where the student is interested in studying; courses/majors they are interested in). There are three types of content hosted in the Discovery Center:

  • Articles

  • Videos

  • Study Guides

The student can browse the content in the carousel or click on “View All” to see more of a specific type of content.

In the summary view, students can choose from a number of filters based on their preferences:

  • Country

  • Content-Type

  • Topics

In the detailed view, the student can find details like:

  • Tags associated with the content

  • Date of upload
