Jamaican students have always been hungry to learn, but in the past they haven’t had online resources to help them fulfil this need. Edris knew many young people who had simply given up on further education because of the lack of accessible information on local training and academic
programmes, especially in inner-city areas.
StudyInJamaica.com provides students with access to the resources they need in a format that is user-friendly, current and relevant to the needs of today’s young adults. The educational website provides information including university funding opportunities, important deadlines and educational competitions for parents, students and teachers from across the island. Educational content is posted on the website’s blog and
social media pages on a daily basis, mainly targeting high school and tertiary students.
Goals and objectives
While the initial aim of the site is to provide readily accessible information for students, in the future Edris wants to establish StudyinJamaica.com as "a student website run by students".
