Frequently asked questions

How does admissions support work in practice?

We act as an extension of your existing admissions team, working inside your systems, to your protocols and meeting your requirements – never veering outside of them. Our trained admissions teams will quickly learn your workflows to quickly and accurately process applications, providing a ‘release valve’ to any backlogs or surge periods. Alongside this we will provide a review of your processes, based on our deep experience of working across many admissions teams, creating efficiencies. We report on progress metrics regularly and provide peace of mind through rigorous quality assurance.  

Can you help me right now?

Yes, we can implement an admissions service quickly, often working to tight deadlines or meeting ‘in-cycle’ backlogs.  

Does this create more work for me?

Initially we will require some of your time to help train us in your ways of working, but this initial investment pays dividends as the service goes live and we relieve workload. Unlike new hires or temporary staff, we do not need to be retrained – and you only have to tell us once  

Can I choose which applications you help process?

Yes, we can support you with applications for target cohorts or from specific countries and regions. If needed, we can also support you with your whole admissions service. We work flexibly to help you achieve your admissions objectives and targets.
