We understand that your colleges and universities offer a range of courses that attract applicants from diverse communities. We also understand that volume and simplicity of processing is important to you. The ability to connect your course finder directly to the start of the applicant journey is vital.
HEIapply is empowering higher education institutions worldwide to be better at streamlining application processes. Our intuitive online admissions system is designed to complement and enhance your processes, enabling the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge

Colleges are home to students from across different regions and sometimes across the globe. We know that means hundreds of applications need to be processed quickly and easily into all your courses as your applicants secure a place to continue their education with you.

We know that pressure on marketing and recruitment activities means that you need to know what activities are converting the most applicants who are successful at securing a place.

As if this wasn’t complex enough, the admissions process is intricate and varied depending on the course that they are applying for. Some requiring interviews, some requiring assessment days, some requiring references - all requiring tools to be able to keep an applicant engaged.

With high levels of manual effort involved, and higher competition for alternative education and experiences, Colleges are at risk of falling short on delivering the applicant journey the modern day applicant expects.

Our Solution

We recognise the need for Colleges to operate efficiently, effectively and competitively. We know that speed and cost efficiency are hugely important.

That’s why we work with you to ensure that we have all the vital ingredients to create your perfect admissions solution at a budget that works for you.
