Understanding Pathway Options Better
We designed an interactive tool to encourage and educate students on the different options for their post-secondary education. Depending on the options they choose, the answer provides them with links for next steps where they can explore further.

Distinguishing Courses Made Easier
Previously, students would have to refer to the JAE booklet to look at the courses that are available which also made it difficult to distinguish between similar courses. Now, with CourseFinder, they can visit the MOE website to not only find courses they might be interested in, but also shortlist them so that it will be convenient for them to fill in their choices in the JAE Internet System (JAE-IS) later.
"When I was filling up the 12 choices I was writing down all the course codes because if you stay too long on the JAE-IS they will log you out"

We have arranged the criteria from the most important to the least important criteria when they are deciding which school they would want to enrol into.
Students can learn more about the course details, minimum entry requirements, modules, internship, career prospects and how to register with the different admission exercises.
During a usability test, the course details, "specialisation" and "career prospects", were ranked of high importance when it came to deciding what course they would choose. Hence, we added them under the shortlist page to make it easier for students to compare between similar courses with different specialisation and career prospects.
