Decision support portal to higher education degree selection: the creation of a personal ranking



The decision on the pair degree/institution, upon application to higher education will be the most important in the life of a young person. Despite recent developments, applicants to higher education still don't know many of the available indicators that could influence their decision. In this paper we propose a portal with a simple design which presents all the available and relevant indicators. It offers also necessary resources and options thus is the candidate and not the state or any other entity, to prioritize their priorities. The portal will allow each candidate to query data, by degree and institution, and make individual simulations, giving weights to more relevant criteria, in order to find a hierarchy of degrees/institutions which most closely match to his goals, thus creating a personal ranking.
