In other words, Collegedunia is an extensive database of information relating to higher education in India providing a detailed information of the top colleges, types of courses offered, entrance examination details and other relevant information.

At the first look of the website, one can see a large search bar with words "Search for Colleges, University, Exam Results, etc" which is ready to fetch the resultant data from the large network of database according to the search query entered.

Under the search tab, you can see two unique links named 'College' and 'Exam' followed by a multi- channel filter option of various courses and streams like engineering, management, medical, arts, science, commerce and law followed by the sub-menus offering filters on the basis of  type (full time, part time, etc), stream and location.
