Review: www.matchcollege.com website

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

To comment, type your msg in the box below, select your profile type, then click publish. When the captcha appears, click on the "I'm not a robot" box and then click publish once the green tick mark appears. Sometimes a picture captcha might come up. To get the instructions for this type of captcha, just click on the "i" icon (given under the pictures), and select all the pictures that are appropriate for the instructions. I have tried to remove the captcha feature but have had no luck so far. It seems to be an un-removable blogger feature to prevent spam.
