Every week, 1,000 prospective university students are searching for courses with entry requirements of AAB and above using Whatuni.com’s groundbreaking new entry requirements course filter.
With tuition fees at an all-time high, there’s no doubt that students paying up to £9,000 a year for their degree will arrive at university with higher expectations than ever before. Focussed on graduate employment rates and competitive tuition fees as well as league table rankings, prospective students are eager to garner as much information as possible to aid them in making their university choices.
In recognition of this growing need for clear, easily accessible information, Whatuni.com has launched two new features to make the search as easy and painless as possible. With a ground-breaking yet simple to use entry grades filter, the Whatuni team has addressed the needs of students who only want to see the degree courses for which they are eligible.
After searching for a course, users can now personalise their results by adding their grades, predicted grades, or tariff. Their results are then refined to show only courses for which they will be eligible, with the highest entry requirements at the top, before comparing the key statistics like fees and entry requirements in our new comparison bar (try out the grade filter and comparison bar for yourself on this law degree courses page).
Whatuni receives an average of 70,000 visits a week from prospective students. Since the launch of the grades filter, 4,000 visitors per week have filtered their course search results by predicted grades, and a quarter of these have entered grades of AAB or above. It’s plain that the brightest A-Level students are also those doing the most research into their university options online, and readying themselves for a year of highly competitive university applications.
At a time when careers guidance budgets are being cut in schools and colleges across the UK, and increased tuition fees have made students consumers in an increasingly competitive higher education sector, the option to filter universities by entry requirements, coupled with the option to compare key stats like Times league table position, percentage of graduates in a job or further study and the number of scholarships available for up to 6 courses, gives students the option to be more independent in their course choices than ever before.
Mike Elms, Founder of Whatuni.com, said: “The next generation of talented, ambitious university students aiming for the highest grades are already beginning the hunt for their ideal university, and we’re proud to be able to say that Whatuni is with them every step of the way. These students are driven, determined, and looking for the clearest information to ensure that their money will be spent well, and wisely. Students need to be sure that the quality of teaching, pastoral care and careers support they receive at university is worth every penny .”
Whatuni provides all the information UCAS holds on their site, alongside university profiles, detailed information about entry requirements, tuition fees and league table listings, along with unbiased reviews from the people who matter the most: students.
