Planning a Degree is quite often a student’s first experience of University.
After deciding what they’d like to be when they graduate they need to wade through a Student Guide, pick the right Majors and Minors to suit their career choice, then select subjects from a myriad of options all the while keeping track of required pre-requisites, co-requisites and even anti-requisites. They’re sometimes torn between what they’re interested in and what they need to earn their degree.
They often need help so they reach out to a busy Course Advisor who walks them through their options. More often than not, it takes a few visits before they finalise their Plan, especially with overseas students.
Research found that over 70% of first year students needed some help with their planning with a lot of those students needing more than one visit to the Advisor. Those visits are repeated if the student wants to change their degree or their Major.
That’s why we’ve created this solution – it helps the student plan their degree in their own time and it removes some of the burden from busy Advisors.
Planning a Degree doesn’t have to be difficult, it can be made easier.
