Erudera, the global higher education search platform, has announced that it now has 152,609 higher education programs free study programs on its database that students can easily search for.
Erudera, created by students who struggled to find a suitable study program, was founded in April 2021 and officially launched its platform in May 2022, with the aim to unite students from all over the world towards quality international education.
“Erudera is a free platform now used by thousands of students worldwide researching their education path. So far, the platform has more than 150,000 study programs that can be browsed by students completely free. Although we’re still a new platform, our data shows that this fall intake many students from almost all over the world have found their universities and study programs using our platform, which they have reported as the right fit for them,” CEO and Co-Founder of Erudera, Gent Ukehajdaraj, said.
The goal of Erudera, is to index all the study programs offered at universities worldwide and to match a university and study program to a student’s profile based on their preferences and personality.
“Through Erudera, we want to reach the point we have aimed for from the beginning, that is for everyone to get the right education that they are happy with,” Ukehajdaraj added.
Students who want to use Erudera to find their education options should initially register on the platform and complete a profile to receive personalized suggestions for the right study destination, program, and university.
“Erudera goes further to offer information about the available programs at each university, so it also provided an idea of what I would want to study. I applied and got admitted to the University of Siegen, Germany. Since I was initially interested in Economics, I chose Masters in Economic Policy as my major,” Student Sheila Makena from Kenya said.
Until now, students who have found their study program and university through Erudera described the platform as easy to use and with more available options than any other website for the study disciplines they searched for.
