We were inspired to create Studdle from an earlier application for students, which only concerned AUEB. In order to help all students of Greece, we created Studdle, which is free to all.

With the help of Studdle, all information about the school of a student are gathered in one application. In particular, through the application, the student has continuous access to the school’s curriculum, the exams program, the announcements, the ways of communication with the Secretariat and the professors and constant updating of any strikes. Students can also find a map with the location of their school, and receiving directions. Finally, it contains all the necessary links to the courses and the happenings of their school, such as e-class or My Studies. All information that is in the app is structured in a simple way, in a friendly user environment. In other words … your school, in your hands!

Nowadays, our first goal is to cover all schools in Greece and keep all the students satisfied with our effort. Expanding abroad is something we have not thought of yet, but we do not reject it as an idea.
