A student experience is no longer just offline or online. It's hybrid, and hybrid is here to stay for Gen Z. We will improve the hybrid student experience and connect your students the ethical way to boost well-being, integration and retention.
GenZ is a curious generation. At UCL we've seen that nothing is easier to boost engagement than by showing students who else is goin' and build hybrid friendships.
Friendships are a huge factor for student well-being. 95% of the students at Utrecht University express that using Goin' makes them feel more comfortable about starting and studying at this university
Integration is key for retention. That's exactly how we use Goin' at the University of Helsinki. Increasing stay-rates by increasing the number of meaningfulness connections between International and Finnish students.
Goin' makes it easier than ever for minorities to find each other and create meaningful friendships. This resulted in vibrant groups such as Introverts, LGTBQ+, Teen Moms and endless other examples at Uppsala University.
We build your exclusive, safe and closed university environment, invite-only
You communicate the invite to your students
Students will directly connect in the application based on their interests, study, campus, country or whatever you can think of!
"One big thing that the Goin’ app does is it takes the "wait" away. I don't have to wait until August to meet everyone, I can just start the college experience now! It has taken away the anxiety of not knowing who you're going to meet when you arrive at campus which is also a big help! I have received tremendous support and answers from other students via the group chats about my application and general questions about the campus which is great!"
"It's so easy to find, chat to people, and see what courses they're doing instead of searching and scrolling through massive social media groups. I love the fact that can we get to introduce ourselves with the little profile introductions, which also makes it so easy to find people with similar interests or the same nationality. I've really been enjoying my time on here!"
"This is one of the best services I’ve yet to experience regarding education. It’s reassuring to get to know your future colleagues before the study starts and build an initial bond with them. The concept of groups is also interesting! You get to make plans about common interests months before you move to Helsinki."
"The main thing that I believe stresses international students when it comes to studying in another country is if they will be able to make friends. This initiative gets rid of that apprehension, so I am really grateful for it!"
"I think it’s a great idea honestly, as soon as I knew of it I downloaded it. It definitely helps calm down nerves because you get to know people from your course and other courses and make acquaintances! With luck, even friends, before getting there. It gives you a head start and makes it easier to open up when you first get to Utrecht!"
"The idea to help find and connect with other students in advance is wonderful. As a matter of fact, to start studying abroad is a tough situation due to housing, living, and other problems. Goin’ reduces those pressure by sharing information with students."
"Although I read a lot about the University of Helsinki and Finland, there were new information that I knew only from Goin'; from the application and from my fellow classmates! It gave me this sense of a community, that I am not alone in this stressful process. Thank you so much!"
"I think it’s a great thing honestly. It helps a lot of people with this anxiety of not having friends or feeling lonely upon arriving either in a new country or just in new studies. I hadn’t had this opportunity before so I must admit that it does help quite a lot. As for the study experience, I believe that it must help with creating a sense of community within the class so that we’d all work better together! Overall the whole idea is really great!"
