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."

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."

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."

University, Ireland

“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.”

Michelle Trimpe

Deputy Director of Admissions & Director of International Admissions, The University of Chicago

"Cialfo’s premium profile and content library have been helpful in navigating the 'new normal' of international student engagement. We’ve been able to share our virtual opportunities and summer programs with students around the world.”

Emerson Buczolits

Manager of International Student Recruitment, OCAD University

"The OCAD University Admissions & Recruitment office is dedicated to creating and providing quality and accessible services for our potential applicants. The digital space allows us to interact with more students worldwide than ever before through means of videos, info-sessions, online workshops and more."

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."

Why partner with us?

Cialfo is where international students and universities alike find their right fit. Universities around the world trust Cialfo’s experts to support them in effectively planning their international undergraduate student recruitment strategy, promoting their unique offerings, and personally connecting with and enrolling right-fit applicants worldwide so they can diversify their campus populations.

Craft effective recruitment strategies

Most university admissions teams simply don’t have the data they need. If they do, they are often under-resourced to use it well. Recruiters need accurate and real-time information, and a reliable partner to help create effective strategies.

With Cialfo’s insights and expert support,  universities make data-driven decisions about where and how to spend their budget for the best results.
