University Comparison Dashboard - 2020 Shiny Contest Submission

University Comparison Dashboard

Authors: Joanna Khek Cuina

Abstract: A Singapore university comparison dashboard that allows you find out your eligible courses, the ranking, the number of graduates and intakes, the overall employment rate, the mean income as well as the grade requirements of a course from the different universities.

Full Description: With the recent release of A Level results, i was motivated to build a informative dashboard to help my fellow Singaporeans with their university course choice. There are many factors to consider when choosing a university and such information are often scattered around the different websites. Hence, I thought it would be a good idea to consolidate all useful information into one dashboard.

In this dashboard, there are 5 tabs that you can explore:

1. Eligible Courses - Find out what courses are you eligible for from a university
2. Ranking - Find out the World and Asia ranking of a university
3. Graduates - Find out the number of intakes and graduates from a university
4. Employment - Find out the overall employment rate and mean income of a course from a university
5. Grades - Find out the grade requirement of the different courses from a university

It's really brilliant! I remember how long I searched for universities when deciding where to enroll. The most inconvenient thing is that each university has a unique website interface. Therefore, you never know where the same information can be found on the websites of different universities.
It seems to me that this will be a prevalent resource for applicants. I wish something similar would be done with tutor search sites. My friend advises me to look for a specialist on 私人補習. But I'm not sure there are decent teachers there.
Thank you for your development!

o my god !It's brilliant!
