“Using Shine helps save time and reduces the effort to recruit and screen students. The alternative would be for the University to have multiple in-person interviews or two-way video interviews which is a costly way of working and open to bias decisions.
Hanna Anders, MSc Admissions Manager, Bayes Busienss School
Bayes Business School wanted to use online interviewing technology to assess potential students and their suitability for a course within the Business School. The Programme wanted to increase its potential candidate outreach and make sure that the candidates are suitable for the chosen course using interviewing software was a big part of this
Using Shine helps save time and reduces the effort to recruit and screen students. The alternative would be for the University to have multiple in-person interviews or two-way video interviews which is a costly way of working and open to bias decisions. Now, admissions teams can conduct one-way video interviews with many students locally and internationally and have them send in a recording of their answers in a relatively short period.
Automated video interviews have been a game changer for us - reduced time-to-screen candidates, eliminated a need to write notes and spend time to arrange two-way interviews in different time zones. The ability to send branded messages and efficiency of the platform helped maintain good candidate engagement throughout the admissions cycle.
Over 700 students are invited every year and more than 90% complete their video interviews, this is a very efficient way of conducting interviews as the Programme is able to save on of time and cost when it comes to shortlisting candidates and testing their skills and motivation online
Once the interview questions are set up it is very easy to send a link via e-mail to the relevant candidates and check the interview once the notification of completion arrives in the Admissions in-box. It is possible for more than one person to assess the answers, which improves qualify of the final decision.
The system removes a need to write notes during interview and negotiate the best time for the interview with all parties, which is vital as we recruit students all over the world and different time zones present a challenge for live communication scenarios.
One-way video interview/Pre-recorded message and questions, easy accessibility.

The implementation process was quick and straightforward with Shine Interview. We had an onsite training session with our Account Manager which was followed up with appropriate step-by-step instructions. We have access to our account manager and our questions and requests are always addressed promptly and in a friendly manner.

Interviews offer applicants opportunity to show their personality, comment on experiences, knowledge and show motivation, which helps us to make decision using holistic approach. Not all information could be included in a standard application form.

Shine has removed steps in our admissions administration process. helping us optimis eteh process and saving us time and resources.
