Your Home Page explained

Once you have set up your BridgeU account, you will be able to access your Home page and access the following: Suggestions, Top Stories, Your Progress, Spotlight On, and Your Tasks.



When you visit the home page, you are greeted with personalised next steps tailored to your specific stage in the student journey. These personalised next steps on the home page are informed by the information you provide during onboarding and the progress you've made on the platform. Our goal is to provide you with clear guidance and support as you navigate and explore your university and career pathways.


Top Stories

In this section, you can read articles, watch videos and view recommendations. Press the Save button next to the item of interest and revisit any items you saved. You will find them in the Saved section. The articles can be filtered per category: Matched, Shortlisted, News and Events. Each category corresponds to the hashtag # in each article.

Spotlight On…

In this section, you can view personalised university recommendations based on your interests. Click View Profile to explore the university details further and if it is of interest, you can Shortlist and return to review the university's profile at any time. Clicking Not Interested will prompt another university recommendation to explore.

Your Progress

Use this progress tool to get you started on BridgeU. Your recommendations will start appearing once you complete these 4 simple steps:

  • Introduction: Select at which stage you are at in your university research
  • Countries: Select the countries you are interested in studying
  • Subject interests: Choose the subjects you are interested in
  • Shortlist: View your matches and start your shortlisting! We recommend 6-7 shortlists to kickstart your university research.


If anything changes, click on any of those 4 steps, and you can edit your answers anytime. You can also add more details in your Profile Builder to personalise your matches.

Your Tasks

If any tasks are assigned to you, they will appear here for quick reference and action. This is where you'll send the task for your advisor to review once you've completed. You can learn more information about how to send a task for review in this article.
