About Purlos

We are one of the fastest-growing education technology Startups based in the UK. Our team is on a mission to allow 10 million students to access the education they deserve by 2025. We help educational institutions grow rapidly by giving them access to our innovative technology, helping them to increase student numbers and reduce dropouts during admissions.

What will you learn? 

The current student experience for making an application to a college and figuring out what course to take is slow, ineffective and not fit for purpose.
