Following Easter and other recent bank holidays, we now have just a few
weeks left before our next Postgraduate Forum event and I am pleased to be
able to tell you that we now have 3 case studies confirmed for this event:
- 'Virtual' PG Open Day from the Central School of Speech and Drama
- 'Real' PG Open Day from Queen Mary, University of London, and
- Live Chats, from Coventry University.
We may be able to fit in one more case study, so if you or a colleague would
like to provide one related to the theme of this event, we would be very
pleased to hear from you. Please contact me on 07739 457182 or
[log in to unmask] - we are offering a special
'case study' discount of 25%.
As there is now only a few weeks left before this event, if you would like
to attend and have not already booked your place, booking as soon as
possible is recommended.
Further details and a provisional programme are given below. As always, we
are offering a discount if you, or a colleague in your department, have
attended a previous event.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.

We all want 'the best' postgraduates to choose our own institution, and high
quality individual communications are a key means of persuading potential
postgraduates to invest in us, rather than our competitors. In the morning
session, we will be discussing the various marketing options open for
communicating in person with potential postgraduates, from traditional
Fairs, open days and overseas visits, to other options offered by
technology, and asking which work best, for both PGT and PGR, and for
pre-application marketing, and post-application conversion activities.
In the afternoon, as a slight change from our normal format, and at the
request of Forum delegates, we will be featuring Case Studies from the
sector of successes (or useful failures!) in using or experimenting with,
any marketing activities relating to the morning session. This will be
followed by a panel Q&A. See above for confirmed Case Studies
***If you or a colleague from your institution would like to speak briefly
(10-15 mins) on any project relating to the this morning's session that you
have carried out, please contact me on
