Hotcourses launch Ultimate Search to match students with courses overseas

Hotcourses’ brand new search & match technology, Ultimate Search, has gone live. Find out how this new development in course search can help students find the perfect course abroad with far more accurate results...


Hotcourses’ Ultimate Search facility has gone live today to match students with the perfect course abroad, with far more accurate results.

Now students from 55 countries can enter details about their current (or predicted) academic qualifications, grades, budget and English level, and be suggested courses abroad with entry requirements which match these. The aim of Ultimate Search is to make study abroad a reality for even more students than ever before – theoretically students should be able to successfully apply to those courses they’re suggested. Students can still search according to preferences like course, country and study level as they have traditionally been allowed to on Hotcourses Abroad.

Ultimate Search is available through Hotcourses’ brand new responsive sites which have also launched today, allowing students to browse for courses overseas wherever they are and on whatever device they are using.

Nine months of work has gone into Ultimate Search, most notably a comprehensive data collection to fulfil this ambitious project. Nearly 200,000 pieces of data have been collected in total, including qualification data for said 55 countries, as well as entry requirement data for universities across in 10 of the most popular study destinations.

Ultimate Search has gone live across not just Hotcourses Abroad but also Hotcourses’ network of a dozen local language sites. It will be available on Hotcourses India in the next few weeks which recently launched Virtual Agency Services.
