Bangor decided to ditch manual processes and implement the Enroly platform for their CAS, visa and arrival processing. This helped to better manage risk and reduce the repetitive and fatiguing compliance tasks that were sapping so much time.
One feature that particularly appealed to Bangor was the capacity to create tailored risk regions for international students based on institutional policies, UKVI guidelines and best practices. Regions could be automatically revised and adjusted whenever policies and guidelines were updated, meaning that Bangor could be confident they were following the latest best practice at all times.
Other out-of-the box compliance features included the ability to automate financial due diligence checks on students applying from certain regions, helping detect fraud and giving additional layers of protection to the institution.
Finally, Enroly’s interview technology helped to automate the interview process for their staff and students: allowing the team to execute credibility interviews at scale. The tech allows Bangor’s international students to complete an interview at a convenient time, and offers a much faster, more consistent experience than with a manual process. From a staff perspective, the team benefited from much speedier assessment times, variable questions that safeguard against coaching, and access to full transcripts for record-keeping.
