School children are exchanging video messages about books while seniors and students pool their wisdom by living together.
Now, thanks to an Indian startup, anyone wishing to attend a British, American or Canadian university can consult with those already there.
Users of the personalised call service can discuss a range of topics with current students, from accommodation and campus life to application procedures and funding.
The hour-long conversations make it easier to select the right university, while first-hand information increases the chance of users’ applications being accepted.
Further support can be booked through the accompanying platform. Help is also available for writing personal statements, and for visa and grant applications.
Erasmus students, meanwhile, might find this a helpful accommodation tool.
