Flashback, the year is 2005, and I am wishing for a place like Collegedunia (College World) . I have just passed out from high school with good grades and I am trying to choose the best college. Way back then, we had to rely on recommendations from friends or relatives to apply to a college. There was no way to get all details like courses offered, facilities provided, fees etc unless we went from college to college. Such a strenuous task. And besides, one can't possibly travel from state to state to make inquiries if one wishes to choose the best college in the country.
Fast forward, year 2014, the internet boom and tsunami of information technology has taken over and everything is at your fingertips. You want to know about say, IIM Ahmedabad, open up your browser, type search 'IIM Ahmedabad' in Google (i usually use Google for everything) and in a fraction of seconds, all the contact details, official webpage, map directions etc jumps out. But then, such a hassle to type search for every college you wish to know about. And this is where, the fireworks start and enter CollegeDunia ( http://collegedunia.com/) - One stop solution to all your queries on higher education information. This is not like the rest of education classified sites that you find online or newspaper ads. Here are some of the unique features of Collegedunia that sets it apart from the rest of the flock.
- Details - like fees structure, courses offered, cut-offs, eligibility, timings for application, co-curricular activities offered, infrastructure facilities etc. The site provides info like the prospectus you get at each college. A screenshot example of one college will provide you an idea with how detailed data is provided by the site.
