Share & Connect
The Brazilian Project about a social network that connects students and universities started in June and has since then reached more than 700 schools and universities through their website. Translated into twenty languages and launched in more than 12 countries around Latin America, USA, Spain and Italy, the EDUFINDME will this year reach Europe and Asia.
EDUFINDME has turned out to be a perfect environment for increasing the range of academic relation between institutions and students. It is a platform that beyond the connections made also suggests matches between both parts; students and universities. This is really useful to people searching for good opportunities to study around the world.
It is also possible to find search engines to be use by both sides with the goal of helping students save time. Instead of using traditional search engines that doesn’t target any specific groups and spend hours searching for universities and courses, this project aims to collect all the important information in one place.
And from the point of view of the universities, it is a great tool to help further their campus internationalization process. It is also a good place to spread the word about scholarships and avoid that good students go unaware about opportunities. At the same time it is perfect for good institutions to connect with the best talents out there.
The whole process of connecting is completely free and easy. First step of the platform is about selling yourself and creating an interactive profile that will attract the right people. After this, you should synchronize your profile with other social media accounts and try increase the network opportunities.
This step will make it even easier to get connected with others. Finally, you will be reached by schools and students. In order to have the best options you will also find different ways to sign up: as an student, as parent searching for the kids, educational provider and agencies.
There are a lot of good programs that go finished but unnoticed and because of this, everybody interested in an academic path with a global perspective and who search for good opportunities should give the EDUFINDME a try.
