Here at Unifrog, we’ve been working on something pretty darn amazing over the past few months – and we couldn’t be more excited to tell you about it.
Those of you who have been with us a while know we’re continuously working on new ways to help students make the best choices and submit the strongest applications - whether through exploring their options with our Know-how guides, creating their perfect uni shortlist or writing a compelling Common App Essay.
With each new development, Unifrog’s goal has remained the same – to create a one-stop-shop for applying to any opportunity taught in English, anywhere in the world.
Our brand new Apply tool has just brought us a big step closer to that goal.
With it, your students can now log in to Unifrog, add any university opportunity taught in English in the world – whether it be at a UK uni, US uni, Canadian uni or any other – and bring together absolutely everything they need to nail that application.
You may, for instance, have a student with their heart set on studying Art at a Netherlands academy. Our tool will let them add a motivation letter, portfolio of work and any copies of certificates required for their online application. The new Apply tool works hand-in-hand with the Locker tool – students and teachers simply associate items in students’ Lockers with the appropriate applications.
Perhaps, though, this student is also considering a degree in the USA? No problem. They can use Apply to gather together their Common App essay, Supplemental Essays and even a video of a rap battle they took part in that will impress the admissions committee. Meanwhile, you can oversee their progress, leave feedback, sign things off and add your own items such as transcripts, school reports and letters of recommendation.
The advantages of using Apply are huge – it allows students to bring together everything they need to apply to any opportunity, view all their applications together and even sort them by status, country and completion. In addition, both you and the student can monitor the progress of each application, work towards a deadline and identify any student or teacher requirements that are missing. Based on the type of application, our tool will even suggest what student items or teacher items might be needed.
Unifrog’s long-term goal is to replace single-stream applications with a platform that opens up doors around the world for every student, and we think our new Apply tool is going to be a big part of achieving this goal.
We can’t wait to see how your students get on with it! The tool is now live for all our partner schools at no extra cost; if you want any support with making the most of it, feel free to get in touch with Freddie - firstname.lastname@example.org - or book in a free demo.
