Paid Internship at The Discov: Entrepreneurship and Project Management

What does The Discov do?

The Discov is an Utrecht-based start that aims to improve the landscape of international education. 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 personality match with the university and enjoy the full experience.

To this end, 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 considers factors like the city, lifestyle, student diversity, cost of living, and more.
