 ·9 Sep 2022

Fundi—a leading Education Finance specialist—has launched its innovative platform, FundiConnect, in a bid to provide students across South Africa with access to quality career guidance and study advice.

With over 1.2 million students enrolled in tertiary education, the need for reliable information on careers and studying is more important than ever before.

 The launch comes as a response to the growing need for accessible, affordable, and trustworthy information on tertiary education and careers.

With the FundiConnect student support platform, students have easy access to a wealth of information that can assist them with their course choices and career goals.

The platform offers:

  • financing solutions,
  • career tips (e.g. how to prepare for interviews)
  • important news and developments in the education space
  • job opportunities, and
  • employment sectors that are currently active.

Features of the Student Platform

With a user-friendly  interface, the platform is accessible from any device and provides a range of features, including:

  • A comprehensive database of resources that includes infographics and articles on a range of topics, such as: choosing the right course, university and career path; study plans; Admission Point Score (APS) Calculators; and advice on writing a CV or preparing for an interview;
  • A directory of universities, colleges, bursaries and career profiles that can be filtered according to preference, and
  • A selection of apps and tools, such as the career quiz, CareerXplora and CV generator.

FundiConnect is filling an important gap in the market by providing students with the tools and resources they need to make informed decisions about their careers.

With FundiConnect, students can get advice on what to study, access career tools and resources, and connect to course options and opportunities that match their skills and interests in a few easy clicks.

“We launched FundiConnect to be the leading content platform for everything ‘student’. In doing so, we’re giving learners and students the tools and resources they need to succeed and follow their dream careers,” said James Kieser, founder of FundiConnect.

“We enable this through quality guides, tools, articles and more, which can all be easily accessed for free via the digital platform”.

The free-to-use platform is a valuable resource for students of all levels—from those who are just starting to study to those who are about to enter the job market.

The launch of FundiConnect marks an important milestone in the development of South Africa’s digital economy.

By providing users with access to reliable information on careers and education, FundiConnect is playing a key role in empowering young people to make informed choices about their future.

It is also intended to provide a platform for students to connect with each other, share information and seek advice from peers.

“We are excited to see how the platform develops over time and look forward to seeing it make a positive impact on the lives of students across the country,” concluded Kieser.
