At whySTUDYhere, we know that trust requires a great deal of risks by default and these are much easier to take when there’s less at stake.
Here, we imagine the amount of trust parents have to have in an institution before sending their kids to study there. We imagine the hopes they put in that one call.
That’s why, we developed a platform dedicated to international students from across the world and offered them a place to share their living and learning study abroad experiences.
whySTUDYhere is both a testimonial site dedicated to international students and a perfect tool for higher ed institutions looking to promote and spread the word about who they are. On one hand, by reading first-hand testimonials from current students and alumni, prospective students are much better served with an accurate image on what institutions stand for and authentic details on what it’s like to study there. On another hand, student reviews are a sneak peek at universities’ courses, services, organisations, clubs, events and campus life for students who are hunting for a trustworthy university and college.
The reviews fill in any potential gaps that ad materials and PR campaigns can’t, adding trustworthiness to the university brand—the human element. Videos, articles, image galleries: they all come to completement the students’ reviews.
Stephen R. Covey puts it much nicer: “When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant, and effective.”
