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
