Posted Wed 4 September 2019 - 09:00

Although the application process for the 2020 undergraduate cycle remains the same, the way you manage and track your students’ applications has changed.

This year, our new adviser portal replaces Apply for advisers and Adviser Track – giving you complete oversight of your students’ applications in one system.

To see if any of your students have completed applications ready to be sent, simply use the ‘Ready to send’ filter in the application management area of the adviser portal.
