“I loved the way that I could speak up and ask questions and that it wasn't some one-way video like session where the professor was just feeding me with information."

Jen Abreu

"Our students were excited and eager to join the webinars and we are incredibly grateful that students are able to go back and listen to the recordings. Our students responded very favorably to this event, as the topics covered were varied and informative."

Develop strong relationships

Build relationships with high schools and their students from key regions through Virtual Visits. University representatives can book visits with network schools at times and dates shared in advance by the high school counselors. Take all the guesswork out of planning your high school visits calendar!

Cialfo also organizes exclusive “Counselor Connect” networking events for counselors to meet and interact with representatives from different universities. These intimate “speed dating” style events for 10-20 counselors and universities help start genuine conversations and establish connections.

Greg Friedman

Director of International Admission, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

"1 on 1 counselor appointments and small group visits are extremely valuable for our team to identify the best fit students and build relationships with counselors. I encourage all high school guidance counselors to help us by providing visit availability in the Cialfo platform along with any other information regarding what they are looking for in a university visit. We are more than happy to cater our visits or presentations to better fit the needs of each school and community, whether that is in person or virtual."

“It's the first time that we are engaging with live data and are able to drill into specific data that can help us benchmark against our peer institutions.”

Sudarshana Shukla

Guidance Counsellor, The Cathedral and John Connon School, Mumbai

“Direct Apply is an amazing tool, and it’s great that you have individual advisors walking students through the process. It just gives the students and us confidence in the product. Direct Apply makes things so efficient in terms of completing the application — student details are pre-populated from the information they’ve filled in on Cialfo.”

Carolyn Barr

International Relations Adviser, Leiden University

“It's sometimes very hard to figure out the success rate [of recruitment initiatives]. But for Cialfo with this tool [Higher Ed Insights], it’s much easier for the institution to figure out the success rate.”

Ciara Newby

Head of International Recruitment, University of Bath

"We have been so impressed with the relationship we have developed with Cialfo over the past year and a half. The user friendly platform has students at the heart of what they do, yet the data driven approach is incredibly beneficial to universities."

Dr. Daniel Saud

Director of International Programs, Admissions, Recruitment & Marketing, Washington State University

"We are excited to partner with Cialfo in increasing higher education access to students across the globe. Since 1890 Washington State has been committed to advancing, extending and applying knowledge through global engagement. Our partnership with Cialfo allows us to deliver on that mission to the 1600+ schools where students use Cialfo to apply to colleges and universities. Our partnership with Cialfo allows us to share the Coug spirit with 100+ countries and inspire future Cougs."

Nahid Afshan

Head of Admissions, BITS Pilani Dubai Campus

"Cialfo certainly has an impressive network of schools across various countries and is increasingly perceived as a very student-friendly virtual platform by schools, to identify and shortlist the universities and various undergraduate programmes of the students’ interest. So in these challenging times, when we are unable to meet or connect with the schools physically, this seems to be the perfect virtual solution to connect with schools and students across the globe."
