80% of Students demand University Apps

In a recent mobile device survey on the S-cool website, 88% of students who answered said they would find an app helpful when applying to Universities.

"This clearly shows that there are plenty of opportunities for Universities to help students," said Judge Singh, Operations Director of S-cool.

Other results, which are probably no surprise are that 44% use mobile to access Facebook and over 50% use Universities websites to get information.
