Education today is all about having an informed choice. With myriad courses and a plethora of institutes to choose from, it is but natural for students and parents alike to get perplexed in finding out the right course and the right institute to pursue one’s interest.

While there are enough institutes and counsellors in this space offering expert advice, they tend to fail at multiple levels, primarily due to their associations with existing universities, which then becomes more of a selling point than an impartial counselling.

Yocket is one such platform that would help students aiming for higher education abroad to get comprehensive information. Yocket helps speed up the process of identification, genuine testimonials and real-time students to find the right university that suits their needs across right from tuition fees to stay.

Having registered over 200,000 students with them, more than 70 percent of these users are actively using its mobile apps and website and exchanging messages which helps in networking with the right people based on their profiles. The community based approach helps an individual seeking admission abroad to build a rapport and approach students for advice and testimonials anywhere abroad. The USP of this initiative is that students can seek help from peers, seniors and even professional experts.

Sumeet Jain, co-founder of Yocket says, “The various tools that have been deployed helps students make an informed choice while choosing a university abroad. It assists the seeker in finding the right graduation schools, compare universities, and provide deadlines to submit applications for different schools and courses and on events such as webinars, seminars to help the student make an informed decision.”

He added, “We are conducting a Graduate Virtual Fair next month in association with EducationUSA (A Dept of State body of US) which will help students to get in touch with the Universities. Students from various parts of the world can access this. More than 50 Universities participate in this Virtual Fair to interact with more than 3000 students from 31 countries. This Virtual meet is beneficial for the Universities as they get access to students across the world by attending this.” has also implemented a machine learning tool that helps users know their probability of getting into a particular university. The site not only helps to network with peers and experts it also provides services which have carefully crafted to cater to the needs of the aspiring student.
