Let me stop here and get back to what this post is all about. This is about a new website - collegedunia.com, which caters to the needs of students trying to find steps for accomplishing their dream educational course.

Review:

When I checked collegedunia, the first thing I noticed was the informative yet simple home page. The home page has a search bar by which you can easily type few letters from your preferred college/institution’s name to get the full information about it.

The Home page, apart from the dedicated menu bar for various subjects, has a news segment where latest and important news like admission opening dates, time for payment of fees etc are flashed.

Searching for the preferred college and course is very simple. All you need to do is type the name of the institution in the search bar. If you are looking for a good institution, then just simply click the stream name. For ex: I wanted to search colleges offering courses in “law”. So I just clicked the “law” button in the menu.

Once that is done, you get additional choices like full time/part time, preferred state and city etc and you can easily filter it down to the college of your choice. The interface is simple and user friendly. If you are able to use google, you should have no difficulty in using this site. J

Once you have zeroed on the institution, you get almost all the information required to take a well informed decision. Right from the fees, placement particulars, description and brochure, you get everything at just a single click. Hassel free!

The only disappointment is some of the most prestigious institutions like Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, Institute of Company Secretaries of India, National Law school of India etc are missing from the database. I hope they include these soon.

I am sure they will be updating these soon as this is a fairly new website.

Let me summarize some of the points I liked and disliked in this website.

What I like:
  1. Nice concept. One stop solution for all educational needs.
  2. Easy and user friendly interface.
  3. I loved the “news” segment in their home page a lot.
  4. We get exhaustive information about the educational institutions (including the ratings) in just one place. No need for website hopping.
  5. Separate segments for Management, engineering, medical, arts, Science, Commerce, law, civil aviation, Computer Application, Fashion Designing, Hotel Management, Mass Communication and other vocational courses.

What I disliked:
  1. Important institutions like ICAI, ICSI, NLS and the law colleges in Tamil Nadu are missing from the database.

Wonderful Concept and this website would be an excellent one-stop destination if they include all the major colleges in their database!
