Web Scraping on a Large Scale

I am currently in the process of gauging the feasability and scale of a web scraping project. The gist of this project is to build a database of all degrees offered by all universities in NSW, Australia (collecting key fields such as University, degree name, faculty, skills, related industries, description). This data needs to be scraped from University Handbooks, with the typical degree page looking like this: ([login to view URL]).

This is a large scale project. There are 43 universities in NSW, with each of these offering anywhere up to a few hundred different degrees (considering undergraduate and postgraduate).

I plan to manage this project myself, and will be available throughout to assist you in your work.

The method for me to receive the data would be me setting up a database on a cloud platform like Azure, then giving your IP temporary access (as well as giving you the required credentials) to read from and write to the database, in order to push the data. As the project begins, we can discuss database structure or other possible delivery methods.

I am putting down a price estimate only because this is a requirement for posting a job on this platform - please ignore it when deciding on your price estimation.

What I am looking for now is a justification for your belief in your ability to complete this project, and a rough time and cost estimate. If I go ahead with this, I would be looking to begin this project in about a month.
