CD Short Logo

CollegeDekho is India’s largest college discovery, enrollment and learning platform. It was started by Ruchir Arora (CEO & Co-Founder), Saurabh Jain (Co-Founder) and Rohit Saha (Co-Founder) in 2015.

Despite 11 million students enrolling in colleges annually, India continues to grapple with a Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) of 27.4% in higher education. The majority of these students are first-generation learners, lacking access to essential professional guidance for college selection and career paths, leading to heightened anxiety and suboptimal career choices. With a staggering 54,000 colleges across the country, the scale of anxiety and fear amplifies.

CollegeDekho is on a mission to alleviate the higher education-induced stress and apprehension faced by students. The company is democratizing access to free professional college and career counselling for every student. By empowering them with valuable insights, students are enabled to make well-informed decisions regarding colleges, courses, and career trajectories. Additionally, CollegeDekho’s efforts extend to enhancing the student’s overall learning experience and equipping them with the necessary skills to thrive in the job market.

CollegeDekho is the most preferred platform for roughly 40% (~4.7 million) of the 11 million students from across the length and breadth of the country, seeking to join colleges each year. The company offers comprehensive information on 35,000+ colleges, along with further information on a varied range of courses and examinations. This information has proven highly beneficial for students as evidenced by the 225 million+ sessions on the website, in the past year. In its lifetime, the company has provided free professional career counselling to 12 million+ students, whilst ensuring enrollment for 200,000+ of them. CollegeDekho has also pioneered a Common Application Form that enables students to apply to multiple (2000+) colleges using a single form. This helps students save time, money and effort required while submitting individual forms.

CollegeDekho also introduced CollegeDekho Assured, which focuses on industry-relevant future skills being taught along with regular degree programmes offered by partner colleges. As per the “State of Working India 2023” report by Azim Premji University’s Centre for Sustainable Employment, over 42 per cent of India’s graduates under 25 years of age were unemployed in 2021-22, and this latest offering by the company could help bridge the employability gap.
