Program: South Africa Summer 2016
We’re a young group of four ambitious, computer science students from WITS University with problem solving ideas.Through our experiences, we’ve noticed that the tertiary application process is cumbersome, especially when applying to multiple tertiary institutions. We want to provide students a more convenient way to apply to universities of their choice. It will encourage applications to universities as it removes the time factor that is usually the issue when applying to multiple universities. We will bring on a new system in South Africa that would better integrate students and varsities. We want to advance and adapt to the new technological era.
We want to develop an application that facilitates the matriculation-tertiary institution application process by allowing the student to submit their details once and have them distributed to the various institutions they chose to apply to.
Additional benefits include the feedback platform that allows you to track the progress of your application, the outlined course information that gives a detailed description of the course you are interested in and an Aptitude Point Score calculator that conforms to the various institutional systems.
For people looking into securing a space at some university, this provides a convenient way for them to apply to several universities just by completing a single application form. Time is money and we plan on removing the time factor.
Our product has a stable market which is Johannesburg students planning on going to a university in Johannesburg. It is convenient and less time consuming, and this would make it attractive to customers.
