We understand that your department offers a range of courses that inspire your students to develop their deep understanding and push boundaries in their specialist subject areas. Your job is to attract applications from a wide demographic and find the best applicants by running seamless recruitment and admissions processes across your department, and maybe within your University, if you have centralised systems.
Undergraduate, post-graduate and non-standard application processes are increasingly important as higher education adapts to the changing skills requirements. HEIapply is empowering university departments worldwide to do exactly this. We are helping departments perform better at streamlining admissions processes. Our intuitive web-based system is designed to reflect your existing processes entirely online, enabling you to refine and improve them to provide the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge

Your University Department is home to students from different regions and across the globe. We know that means applications need to be processed from multiple countries all over the world. Processing the volume of applications that you receive can be challenging for a small team, or a team that is dispersed across marketing, admissions and other centralised services. We know that means sharing relevant information quickly and easily so that a collaborative approach to admissions is achieved.

As if this wasn’t complex enough, the choice available to the applicant is so great now, that even the most selective institution needs to ensure that the applicant journey is seamless, supporting the applicant to engage in the process at every stage, to attract the best applicants. With high levels of manual effort involved, University Departments are at risk of falling short on delivering the applicant journey the modern day applicant expects.

Our solution for your University Department

We recognise the need for University Department Admissions to operate efficiently, effectively and competitively, recruit from all over the globe, and place the right graduate in the right role. 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 paperless application management and selection solution at a budget that works for you.
