Collegedunia.com: Journey from a Flourishing Startup to Leading College Review Portal

Searching out colleges to take admission post 10+2 is something through which we have all gone through. As a student, you need to know four basic things about the college/university before taking a call. These four things being quality of education offered, fee structure, views of current students and the alumnus, ranking/rating of the institute.

However, it is a difficult task to garner this basic information about the colleges/universities. The idea of getting all this information in regards to colleges and exams across India and abroad at one place is something that student community wanted badly. To bridge this information gap and to help students, parents and teachers get all the necessary information about colleges and universities at one place Collegedunia.com emerged as an idea.

The vision of empowering students with the knowledge to help them take a wiser decision in regards to choice or career and alma mater paved the way for its establishment. Collegedunia.com comes as a comprehensive repository of college/universities and career-related information like exams for both parents and students. Students can search the colleges based on the alumni reviews about the colleges.

Since its inception, Collegedunia.com has guided lakhs of students across India (and abroad as well) in making smart and rational decisions in regards to their career and institute selection. From a limited number of colleges and courses, Collegedunia.com has become the segment leader in the country. The platform is the leading college review portal of the country at present.

Collegedunia.com is a brainchild of BITS Pilani Alumni Sahil Chalana. Founded in 2014 the company began its work as a niche startup. As per Sahil Chalana, there exists a huge gap in regards to the data and its quality that students and parents look out for in the pre-admission phase. Due to which he stepped in with the idea of Collegedunia.com and built a team of young and motivated individuals. With an average employee age of 25 years, Collegedunia.com is a team of 250 plus youths who want to contribute to the society meaningfully.

Lack of information can be detrimental for career and institute selection, and that’s where collegdunia.com comes in to guide and aid the students. Its large community of students and alumni help in decimating useful knowledge to the students.

The information available on the website is quite extensive. From popular courses like medicine and engineering to vocational and study abroad information you can find it all here.

Keeping in mind the ease of accessibility and the popularity of mobile apps Collegedunia.com has come up with an app based interface as well. Students can access all this information easily and effectively with the mobile application of Collegedunia.com.

Collegedunia.com also collaborates with the college fests through which students come up to the platform and give reviews about their colleges. With ever expanding information base and popularity, Collegedunia.com wants to take its vision to the next level shortly. The long term vision of the firm is to deliver to the admission needs of the students in an end to end manner. For that involvement of the student community with the platform is the plan ahead.
