Quipper Campus is an online platform that provides complete information of universities across Indonesia, including location, majors, administration information and many more. It is a one-stop information portal for high school graduates who aspire to further their study to higher education. The idea of Quipper Campus is to bridge the information gap between high school graduates who search for higher education information and higher education institutions who want to promote about their institutions.

In addition to providing a wide range of information to students, universities across Indonesia can utilize Quipper Campus to attract more students to study with them. In Indonesia, the gross enrollment rate (APK) for the category of age 19-24 (college level) is still very low, which is below 30% according to the data from Private Higher Education Coordinator (Kopertis). The limited information obtained by prospective high school graduates and equivalent is suspected to be one of the things that are affecting the low APK in that age category. The government has been actively addressing the issues, one of them is by improving the quality of private higher education institutions (PTS).

"It is undeniable that PTS quality becomes the main reason for choosing Higher Education Institutions. Increasing the number of students on PTS is needed to improve the quality. It should be done soon because those PTS who have less than 500 students is categorized as low scale PTS," added Illah Saillah - Private Higher Education Coordinator Jakarta Region (Kopertis).

In response to the issue, Tri Nuraini - PR & Marketing Manager Quipper Indonesia said, "Quipper Campus is designed with simplicity, and friendly user interface that is easy to access from any device at any time student convenient. We believe that with our service, students would be able to obtain complete information about universities and higher education institution in Indonesia and choose the best one that suits their talent and career prospect."

As an educational technology (edu-tech) company, Quipper has a vision of being a "Distributors of Wisdom," and wants to contribute and support the government goals by providing equal access to quality education for everyone in Indonesia.

Takuya Homma, Country Manager Quipper Indonesia said, "At Quipper we believe that every student has the right to receive quality education, and with Quipper Campus, we are extending our reach on the education ecosystem. This is part of our commitment to support government programs to make sure that Indonesia's future generation can compete at the global level."

As of now, Quipper Campus already provides information on all 120 state universities and more than 150 selected private higher education institutions in Indonesia. In the near future, there will be more information on private higher education institutions in Quipper Campus.
