Potential students seeking non-university higher education with the provider can expect less paper work and more experiential and interactive orientations.

Australia’s largest private, non-university higher education provider has announced the adoption of an AI-driven digital platform to make the research, selection, and application process easier for applicants seeking university and pathway options with them.

Education provider Navitas delivers higher-learning programs—via pathway colleges and managed campuses— to students requiring a university education via its partnerships with more than 30 universities in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, and the Middle East.

With its latest digitalization effort, the education provider can leverage automation and analytics for its yearly batch of 70,000 or so applicants to research potential educational institutions of interest; complete assessments and surveys; meet with counselors; track tasks and deadlines; select courses, attend virtual college fairs, and ultimately, submit final applications directly to their chosen institutions or programs of choice.

According to the Navitas’ Executive General Manager (Global Engagement), Tony Cullen: “We are excited to be working with our partner Cialfo to reach more students that can benefit from access to our university partnership programs in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Our agreement with Cialfo connects us with students before they finish high school, allowing us to improve our understanding of their needs and aspirations and ultimately find the perfect solution for them.”

Cialfo is an AI-driven digital platform used by students across 100 countries. According to its CEO and co-founder Rohan Pasari: “Our system’s Direct Apply feature will support their international initiatives and commitment to improving the student experience with direct access to diverse programs around the world and simplifying the enrollment process in one seamless digital platform.”

Through this digitalization initiative, Navitas expects to cultivate a more diverse and internationalized campus by offering applicants an all-in-one channel explore and select an array of undergraduate, pathway, and other customized programs.
