Our Story

We did not start SimpleStudying because we loved the way UK education system works. Actually, quite the opposite.

We were international students in a London law school. We were working very hard to get high grades, doing all the essential reading and recommended activities by our professors. However, we were still struggling to get First Class grades. By the time we reached the final year, over half of our class had dropped out…

We realized that traditional higher education industry heavily depends on overcomplicated textbooks and lacks digital solutions to make students’ life easier. As a result, around 70% of total enrolled students in the UK university are dropping out throughout their course and only 9.9% gets a 1st class degree. On a typical 3 year undergraduate course, students lose from £91 to 103K(international students) by dropping out including the loss of tuition, subsistence and book fees.

Technology

Technology where students can find any specific information they need in seconds instead of reading thousands of pages in dozens of complicated textbooks.

High Quality Content

All our study materials are created by successful students and graduates who have achieved at least upper second or 1st Class grades.

All-In-One

Advanced search, high quality content and a community to connect to millions of other students worldwide and study together.

We provide all in one platform where students find everything they need in one platform.

What is SimpleStudying?

So we started SimpleStudying to fix the broken industry!
Our digital platform is significantly decreasing the dropout rates and improve students’ grades in the UK universities.

Why do we need a digital platform for students?

Currently, students are required to research in many different books and read thousands of pages to be able to find information they need to successfully pass their exams. There is no way to find the needed information fast. After interviewing over 200 students, we have estimated that students spend around 800 hours per academic year for searching information. How this was calculated:
Students have on average 4-6 study modules to study per academic year:
Students have around 500 pages to read per study module from where they have to gather the information they need to pass exams. Thus, 2000-3000 pages in total per academic year. From our research, students have noted that they can read 3-5 pages in an hour (due to the textbooks being too complex). In total estimated 800 hours of research.
