Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani Dubai is a private technical research university based in Dubai’s International Academic City. The team at BITS partnered with TalkCampus as a way to provide their students with confidential, round-the-clock support wherever they are in the world. TalkCampus’s real-time escalation of at-risk students back into the university was one of the key elements that made this such a valuable offering to the university.
TalkCampus is inclusive to all students, whether on campus or studying remotely and offers support from the ease of a student's phone, wherever they are, whenever they need it.
TalkCampus not only offers instant ongoing support but also intelligently alerts students to additional options for help; all embedded within the app. A combination of peer support, machine-learning and innovative design, TalkCampus offers a community of support for academic anxieties, isolation and life’s ups and downs while also providing social connection with like-minded people, in a non-judgmental environment.
TalkCampus will be used to complement BITS’s existing services available in their student welfare division and ensure that there is support available for those students who are outside of the institutions existing framework.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome BITS to our global portfolio of forward-thinking institutions. By giving students access to an upstream service like TalkCampus, students are able to be proactive about their wellbeing and receive support for any challenges they are facing, in an environment that is familiar and intuitive to them. We believe creating joined up care is how we can offer the most impactful support to those struggling and we look forward to working closely with the BITS team and supporting their students.” - Jennifer Russell, Clinical Director at TalkCampus.
