Myriad by UCAS
Myriad started life three years ago as MO, and was acquired and developed further by UCAS to provide personalised student support, by:
- matching students to postgraduate courses and enabling multiple direct applications
- offering a comprehensive profile of UK universities and colleges
- providing accommodation and employment tools, with tailored support in 15 languages
The addition of the Myriad app to UCAS will set the UK apart in the international student recruitment market, and support up to 150,000 students who start postgraduate courses in the UK each year.
Aaron Powell, Managing Director for Myriad in the UCAS Group, added: ‘Applying to university is the one of the most important decisions anyone will ever make. We know students make multiple applications to different institutions in different countries. We believe a single postgraduate gateway, under the trusted UCAS brand dedicated to UK higher education, will enhance the UK’s competitiveness, and provide students and agents with unrivalled support throughout their application journey.
‘For both students and their education advisers and agents, Myriad is a game-changer. The technology allows for a streamlined application process, eliminating the need to complete multiple applications across different forms, or spend hours searching for postgraduate courses information, scholarships, accommodation, and employment, in different places.
‘We are especially excited about the value Myriad will provide for in-country agents and advisers. It will free up their time and reduce the level of administrative resource they need to dedicate to the application process, so they can focus on advice and support for students.’
