JUNE PG MARKETING FORUM - Thursday 5th June, Central London
We now have only limited places available for the June event so booking soon is recommended if you would like to attend.
Theme: UK PGT in a falling market – reversing the trend
The HESA figures for 2012 entry showed the PGT market in the UK falling for the second year in a row. With the already fragile PGT market and the first cohort of undergraduate students with higher debt emerging in 2015, what, if anything can be done to reverse the worrying decline in new students and increase numbers of UK PGT students?
In this Forum session we'll be looking at both strategic and practical ideas for recruiting more UK PGT students, including looking for and promoting to new or unexplored markets, converting the students we are already attracting, the role of sector wide or collaborative campaigns, and how to understand who our PGT markets really are, or could be. We are also including a student panel, to find out what UK PGT students really want.
For this Forum, we are looking for two or three case studies from the sector, on successful campaigns aimed at the UK PGT market, from both an institutional and department/faculty standpoint. Each case study lasts 5-10 minutes followed by a panel Q and A with discussion and questions, and we are offering a reduced rate for delegates offering case studies - please see below. If you would like to offer a case study, please do get in touch with me at [log in to unmask] or 07799 651339 .
A provisional programme is given below. As usual, we are offering a reduced rate if you or a colleague from your Department have attended before.
