About us

Our story begins with a student – one that fell through the cracks of our university’s student support services. We watched as our peer and friend struggled, failed and eventually dropped out. We created Vygo so that no student would ever be left behind again. Our conviction is that every student deserves a world class education and access to world class support.

We have both been mentors and tutors for our younger peers at university. We were confident that personalised and scalable student support was possible if universities could leverage technology to empower their student community. But we realised that institutions were struggling to do this at scale.

We wanted to create something that students loved and wanted to use. Something as intuitive and innovative as TikTok, Facebook or Airbnb.

Vygo isn’t just a peer mentoring app anymore. We host all sorts of peer and student support initiatives for universities and higher education institutions - from counsellors, to faculty specific alumni mentoring, to class specific peer tutoring. We’ve become experts in student engagement and transformational student experiences.

Join us on our mission to provide every learner with a world class education experience.
