End-to-End Aspiring Student Experience

The Aspiring Student Digital Journey

Learn more about the future student journey and how IQAP intersects with it

1
Awareness
How do students become aware of study options for the first time? The role of marketing communications at this stage is vital - this is "push and pull" at its best. Students are reached directly using paid marketing or are attracted by referees or influencers, or organically.
Geography 2
Expression of interest
At this stage, students want more information. The more information the student provides, the better the answer to their questions will be. IQAP is a 24/7 service that qualifies prospective students using bots in various languages, using ‘Natural Language Processing’ to connect students with the relevant counsellor.
Geography 3
Counselling
This is the critical stage when a peer-to-peer connection between a student and relevant person (i.e. agent counsellor, staff member or even alumni or student ambassador) is what makes the difference, altering the future student journey.
Geography 4
Assertion
Following counselling, communication and clarity about study options, managing student information and providing access to quality resources about the intended course or education provider via quotes are part of proper CRM execution.
Geography 5
Application
This is the climax of the journey. At this point, online applications are a must - long gone are the days of paper or PDF applications. The future of this stage will be machine learning and document verification.
Geography 6
Admission
At this stage, students are either admitted or rejected. If admitted, offers issued can be unconditional, conditional or packaged with other courses. The offer of admission is the legal document defining the contractual relationship between a student and an education provider. The process for this document to be issued can make a world of difference for both the student and the university or college.
Geography 7
Acceptance
It is very reasonable for students to receive more than one letter of offer - the average is three! As application systems become easier and faster to use, the number of offers may well increase. You can leverage the power of peer-to-peer recruitment to convert students with offers from your own branded app.
Geography 8
Enrolment
This is the final stage of the aspiring student journey, while also the beginning of one of the best experiences students will ever have. Further aspects of the onward student journey, such as accommodation and transportation, can be tracked via IQAP.
