This project seek to address the issue of unemployment which has become prevalent in Botswana in recent years . The country through its many tertiary institutions produces a lot of graduates which can not be absorbed into the market while there still exists areas where where we lack human resource. The proposed solution to this problem is to match prospective students with courses that are still in demand in the market which would reduce the chance of one being without employment. To achieve this a system is to be developed which give the students all available accredited institutions ,course and scholarship so they could make informed decisions. Based on the interests of such a student options will be presented to the student well in time so the know what they are required in order to take that career path.
