Startup: The Discov

Over: The Discov

We are The Discov

The world’s first unbiased and digital study counsellor. We use data to provide the best possible fit between student and university, ensuring universities receive their ideal candidates and students go to their dream university.

Rethinking higher education

While there are more opportunities than ever for students to pursue an education abroad, it is also the hardest it’s ever been for international students to choose a university. This is because of the maze of information and choices available to them. As a result, universities also struggle to stand out in a sea of competition to find the suitable candidates.

But what do universities, study choice platforms and education consultants miss when it comes to a student’s future?

That it is more than choosing the right program, it’s choosing a new home. A career path. A chance to form identity and social networks. That’s why we believe in a holistic university selection that goes beyond subject choice, ranking tables or global reputation…
