Our mission is to provide younger students with invaluable, honest guidance to help them achieve their full academic and social potential.

The Oracui Story
The team has expanded since inception, however, being students themselves, they all share a common passion for peer-to-peer mentoring. Representing seven nationalities, ‘Oracui’ is derived from the Latin term ‘oraculi’ meaning oracle or mentor. Mentors are trusted advisors that seek to provide encouragement and impart valuable knowledge so that we can make informed decisions. At Oracui, we aim to provide an empathetic solution to university planning for high school students through our global peer mentoring platform. Deciding which university to attend can be a difficult decision for many students. Counselling services are often expensive, and university fairs fail to give students a meaningful, unbiased account of campus life.
Our seamless interface solves these issues by connecting high school mentees directly with university student mentors in a matter of clicks. High school students indicate their subjects and locations of interest, and our specialised algorithm pairs the mentee with the best-fit university student for 1:1 tertiary education guidance. This allows high school students to ask personal questions in a safe and secure space, from concerns about studying in a foreign country to general queries about the student experience at their university of interest. With trained mentors from the top universities around the world, high school students have unparalleled access to genuine and tailored advice. Select your university with confidence!
Oracui extends this passion for enriching the youth with effective planning by bridging the gap between the classroom and the professional world. With our initiative ‘Insights with Experts’, we provide the leaders of tomorrow with exclusive perspectives about the journey to success in various industries. Through rich intellectual discussion, we hope to foster the next generation of beneficent, determined, and influential innovators.
