At Cúrsa, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new website.
Cúrsa scientifically matches potential students to over 800 Higher Degree courses in Ireland based on their personality. It is completely free to use and requires no sign up or personal details.
With some college courses having a 37% dropout rate and the cost of education increasing, the website aims to help potential students select a college course that they are most likely to enjoy and would give them the best chance of success.
Career guidance research shows that certain personality types flourish in particular careers. The prospector page of the website asks the user a series of simple questions about their likes and interests. The algorithm then applies Holland Codes (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional) to match the users personality type to three, third level courses and career pathways that they best fit. The website also takes account of the users expected Leaving Certificate results, along with their preferred institute and county.
On the course page, users can view and search the full list of over 800 college courses from 34 third level institutes
Initially launching for Level 8 courses, Cúrsa will include Level 7 courses from 2017.
