Background

Educational institutions, especially in the modern digital age, need to be agile and adaptive to the changing needs of students and the market. As the world moves towards a more digital-centric approach, our client wanted to ensure their online presence is not only informative but also user-friendly and efficient. 

A streamlined online application process not only enhances the user experience but also reduces administrative burdens, leading to cost savings and improved operational efficiency. 

Client

The client, founded in 1991 has been a beacon of excellence in providing mature students with comprehensive training in counseling and psychotherapy. With its rich history and commitment to continuous professional development, the institution has made significant strides in the field of education. 

Challenges

The client’s primary challenge was the hybrid nature of their online application process. Potential students were required to navigate through a mix of online and offline steps, leading to confusion and inefficiencies. The process involved mailing documents and making in-person tuition payments, resulting in excessive paperwork and administrative challenges.
