i-student group: university guidance for students, teachers and parents




I-student group is a really useful on-line guide to universities, courses and publications aimed at helping students match their higher education needs.

There are four sections:
Advisor
i-studentadvisor publications are easy to use, interactive online magazines used by thousands of student advisors, counselors, IB coordinators and heads of sixth form throughout 165 countries.
Enquiry
i-studentenquiry is a free, online matching service designed to help individual students from around the world find the right course at the right college, university or English language school overseas.
Student life
i-studentlife is a social community created with the help of our team of international students from around the world, where students share their experiences and advice about studying overseas.
Brochure
i-studentbrochure produce bespoke interactive e-brochures for individual colleges, universities and organisations. Our brochures are a carbon-free, cost-effective alternative to hard-copy printing.

I would say that  I-Student is really useful for teachers, guidance counsellors and parents as well as students carrying out their own research.
A recent innovation is the introduction of the new Flinders University iPhone/iPad App! Definitely worth a look....
