The Real Uni Guide (RUG) is an intelligent social search engine for both universities and colleges. So intelligent it makes Wikipedia blush. It allows you to input your every want from your perfect university or college, whether that be academic ranking, sporting prowess, male to female ratio, location, UCAS points and more, we’ll find the right campus for you to further your education.
Each university and college has their own profile but there’s no boring text-heavy pages to trawl through; we keep things fun with interactive and video content. The profiles will give you a proper picture of each campus; we’ve searched far and wide to get you the information you need to make an informed decision – we sent our RUG team up and down the country to source student-savvy opinions from campus and beyond and now we can give you the real facts.
Our information covers, accommodation, cultural hubs, nightlife, places to eat, course outlines, sport and education facilities and more. With Real Uni Guide, it’s personal. We utilise your social networks to show you which friends are at, going to or have been to each university or college. And it doesn’t stop there – we’ll show their recommendations and opinions so your choice is more personalised than ever before.
You can browse through universities or colleges specific to your criteria, save them for later, or discard them like old jeans, so you’ll be able to form a bank of profiles that are tailored to you. Our ‘Student Guide’ section has up-to-date and relevant information on the application process, everything from creating your personal statement, UCAS forms to interview techniques. So what are you waiting for, the perfect place to further your education is out there, start searching, comparing and learning.
