We understand that your Sixth Form College offers a range of courses that attract applicants from diverse communities. We also understand that volume and simplicity of processing admissions is important to you, in order to provide prospective students with an excellent applicant experience.
HEIapply is empowering sixth form colleges nationwide to streamline admissions processes. Our intuitive online system is designed to complement and enhance your processes, enabling the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge

Sixth Forms are home to students from varied school backgrounds. We know that means thousands of applications through from schools, independent schools, grammar schools and academies both within and beyond your catchment area.

While the prospective student is interested in securing a place at your sixth form for their brighter future, parents will also be involved in supporting the application with supplementary information.

As if this wasn’t complex enough, the admissions process is intricate and varied requiring household income, medical and residential information from the beginning.

With high levels of manual effort involved, multiple requirements and lower levels of customer engagement, Sixth Forms are at risk of falling short on delivering the applicant journey the modern day applicant expects.

Our Solution

We recognise the need for Sixth Forms 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.
