Peek behind the scenes of Eduhub

Our new office Rokin 75
In 2008 Ruben Timmerman and Wouter de Boer joined to build a transparent and independent platform for comparing education programmes in The Netherlands; Eduhub.nl was born and is successfully growing since.

Today we are the leading education comparison website in The Netherlands, containing more than 22.000 courses from 1.970 institutes with an average of
130.000 unique visitors per month.

In summer 2010 it was time to go a step further by crossing the channel to launch Eduhub.co.uk. The goal: repeating and even exceeding the success of Eduhub.nl. Besides growing online Eduhub also grew in people (currently 12),
so we moved to a new office in November 2010, creating an ideal place for
enhancing our products and finding inspiration for new business solutions.

We’re proud of the reactions of the first providers on Eduhub:
The admin pages are great – I logged in when you sent me
the logins and everything appeared very easy to use.

We are also really impressed by the look of the site – very professional and simple to use.” (Reed Learning)

That leaves us en route for our goals for the next six months:
  • Raising the total number of online training courses to 8.000.
  • Attracting around 60.000 unique visitors to the website per month.
  • Supporting you to get the best out of our website regarding usability,
    exposure, conversions and communication with prospects.
