Faculty Marketing & Recruitment update – June

Marketing

We are looking to drive awareness and conversion activities for PGT Home recruitment for 2021 using a range of digital channel methods such as Calendly, which is proving to be effective in facilitating quality conversations; as well as paid advertising activity across Findamasters.com, Google and social media, including Facebook and LinkedIn.

Further information will be shared once campaigns are in place.

Events

  • Virtual Pre-Applicant Open Day – Saturday 26th June
  • FindAMasters Fair – Wednesday 7th July
  • Virtual Pre-Applicant Open Day – Saturday 10th July

All Open Days are currently online, held on our newly updated Revolution Viewing platform, which boasts interactive virtual 360 tours of departments, and much of the video content we’ve produced with the help of academics and students alike over the last year.

The FindAMasters Fair is aimed at prospective students interested in STEM and Medicine courses, where they will have the opportunity to ask us any question they may have about both PhD and Masters courses.  

Widening Participation (WP)

The UCAT 2021 online course will be running for 5 weeks from 23rd June, and we aim to have 192 WP students in attendance.

Unfortunately, our two upcoming school events have been cancelled by the schools due to the recent Government announcement. However a number of schools have booked events in advance for the next academic year.

Recently our WP Officer has presented two subject talks at Longley Park to 37 WP students and an alternatives to medicine talk online to 40 students.
