Application Advisor - Category AT3



Director of Financial Aid and Deputy Director of Admissions


Position Overview

The post holder is responsible for the processing and decisioning of applications to AUP across all categories of students.  This position is an essential part of a team, responsible for the entire application process from when an application is initiated to the point that the application is decisioned.



Main Duties and Responsibilities

The main duties and responsibilities of the role will include, but may not be limited to:


Supporting prospective students to complete their applications

Through a combination of personal contact (face-to-face meetings, webinars and telephone calls) and written communication, the post holder will support their assigned cohort of students through each stage of the application process.  This aspect of the post will routinely include having responsibility for telephone calls and visits to the Admissions Office.  This will include offering advice (if appropriate), facilitating the upload of all supporting documentation, and troubleshooting issues related to the application process as it impacts on individual students.  Where necessary, the post holder will exceptionally waive specific requirements so that an application can be reviewed within published deadlines. 


Decisioning complete applications

Throughout the application cycle, the post holder, as part of the Applications Team, will assess, review and decision applications, according to the appropriate admissions standards of the University.  This will include the completion of an admissions evaluation on each applicant and the assignment of an admissions score, which will determine whether the applicant is successful or not in gaining admission to the University.  In all cases, an assessment of the prospective students’ FIT and LTA scores will be undertaken.  The post holder will be responsible for communicating the admissions decision to their pool of prospective AUP students.


Financial Aid

The post holder will provide information concerning financial aid to applicants and their parents in a timely manner.  In parallel with reading applications, the post holder will also read Financial Aid applications and make recommendations to Financial Aid colleagues concerning the type and amount of aid to be offered.


Ensure the smooth transition of accepted students to the responsibility of the Student Recruitment Team

The post holder will ensure that all notes related to each accepted student they are responsible for are complete and, where appropriate, students (VIPs, special cases, children of alumni etc.) flagged to individual members of staff so that the smooth transition of students is facilitated between one Team and another.  It is expected that the post holder will maintain a regular (formal and informal) dialogue between all relevant colleagues in the Admissions Office to facilitate all transition points.


Manage all post-application enquiries

With colleagues in similar roles, the post holder will be responsible for managing all post-application enquiries to AUP via the Hobsons Radius CRM system.  In consultation with colleagues, such queries will be met through the development of ‘templated’ replies appropriate to the nature of the email and other enquiries received.  Overall, the post-application enquiry phase will rely on the efficient and timely use of Radius at all times.


Contribute to the development of a Team ethic

The post holder, along with colleagues, will be responsible for the development of a Team working ethic.  While there are clearly defined responsibilities linked to this post, as part of the Applications Team, the post holder will be required to develop a working knowledge of all areas of activity the Team is responsible for.  This will include understanding each person’s individual roles and tasks, and the ability to support each other when time pressure, scheduling or other factors intervene.


Supporting the overall mission of the Admissions Office

The post holder will continue to be responsible for activities related to all aspects of student recruitment and admissions.  In practice, the post holder will be asked to perform other duties by the Vice President and Director of Enrolment Management as they see fit, complimentary to the role described here.  This will be dependent on such factors as the time of year, workload of other Teams, absences and vacations, and changes in the external environment.
