How to manage your profile

Your profile is the area where you can share information about yourself, your classes, your school, the projects you are interested in.

It only takes a little bit of time to update it. But the richer your profile, the more likely you are to find the right matches for your classes and your projects. 

To update your profile, log in to your account and choose the Profile link from the top menu.


In the Profile area choose the Edit option.

The first thing you really should do is fill in the About you and About your school sections of your profile. These two sections give you the space to explain in your own words your own interests, your objectives, your projects.

The sections also give you the chance to help other MatchMySchool users understand more about your school and your students.

The more detail you put in here the better. So don’t hold back

To add some colour to your profile, please also add some photographs.

Just click on the Change Profile Photo link to upload your own picture. 

You can either take a photo there and then by choosing the Take Photo option (the platform will use the camera on your PC for this).

Alternatively you can upload the picture you prefer of yourself (or your pet dog or cat if you insist). Whatever you like really. It’s straightforward to do.

The platform allows you to crop the photo for best effect and confirms when its all done. 

You can follow the same process for your cover image too.
