"The benefits for students are far-reaching: boosting their CVs, discovering their interests, and putting them on track for their ideal college.”

Casey Nolen Jackson, Head of University & Career Counseling

 

Student applications

“I wanted Unifrog as soon as I saw it; I immediately knew it would help our kids. Students in grade 10 have a work experience week, and the CV Builder tool has helped the counsellor find the right area to place students in, and helped make the students become viable candidates for possible employers. Those who later apply for a summer job find that they already have a great CV in place. Most students find the CV tool incredibly easy and pleasant to use. It also helps teachers to find content for our letters of recommendation by giving us the right information.

The Personal Statement tool has made a historically stressful process a lot more manageable for students. Students who feel overwhelmed by the process of starting an essay find it much easier to tackle this task when using Unifrog’s ‘three section approach’. It’s always fun to hear them say, “Wow, now I have a personal statement” after clicking the ‘Preview’ button. The Personal Statement tool really helps students reflect on their achievements. It’s the only tool I have found that is based on the application components themselves. It’s a self-awareness tool that allows students to explore and identify their strengths.”

 

Student engagement

“Prior to using Unifrog I used Google forms and resumes on Naviance’s tool which are both far inferior, and students often found it hard to stay focused due to the inaccessible user-interface of both platforms. Now, with Unifrog, students are much more motivated and attentive during advisory sessions.

When using the UK university search tool, the variety of filters available helps to answer lots of questions very quickly. I particularly like the fact that the tool takes into account each student’s academic background, then sorts every relevant university course into one of aspirational, solid, and safe choice. There is nothing else like it!

Unifrog has made students, teachers and staff happier to engage in the university application process. The benefits for students are far-reaching: boosting their CVs, discovering their interests, and putting them on track for their ideal college.”
