I was approached by MatchCollege a few days ago, asking me to review their website, which I agreed to because once I checked out the site I honestly found it to be a great concept!
The website is designed to be a valuable vast resource of information for students, prospective students and parents regarding different universities, colleges, degrees and qualifications across the United States of America. It is incredibly user friendly and a pleasure to use.
All you have to do is go to the main page (www.matchcollege.com) and select your qualification of choice/ area of study from the drop down menu on the left (I chose Education for example).
You will then be redirected to a page that contains a list of programmes you could follow, with further links to pages full of information regarding those programmes such as the study requirements, prospective salaries and a list of universities/colleges that offer the qualifications etcetera. As if this wasn't enough, the list of universities/colleges given even has links you can click on to request more information from the universities/colleges themselves!
Another thing about this website that makes it so great is the fact that international students wishing to study in America now have a way of finding out all the information they would need in order to study abroad at the click of a mouse.
The only problem I encountered when I was browsing the different sections of the website was the fact that a few of the pages/sections took quite a while to load, but this could also have been due to a lag in my internet connection. All in all I would give the site a whopping 7 out of 10 and I can honestly recommend that you check it out for yourself.
Till next time, take care
