Enable prospective students to interact with your current students, allowing them to ask questions and develop a sense of connection with your university or college whilst they do their research.

The data you need, the leads you want


With competition increasing, student expectations changing, declining retention rates, and economic uncertainty, student recruitment is more challenging than ever. Accessing rich insight into the student mindset, along with relevant quality leads, is crucial. 

Give prospective students an inside view


Give prospective students an insider's view of what it's really like to study, live and socialise at your university or college. Students like to chat via online messaging and communicating this way boosts confidence and empowers students to speak openly – let your best student ambassadors do the talking for you.  

Through Unibuddy on UCAS students receive trusted insights from your current students, in a familiar and supportive environment. 




Valuable engagements


Our student audience is higher up the decision-making funnel. We are driving new and valuable engagements with providers. Engagements they don't typically obtain through research on provider's websites alone.
