There is a mounting wave of public and press criticism, plus educational anxiety, and official reminders about recruitment practices, student progress and outcome. A concern that student choices are overly influenced by incentives and pressures not appropriate for key life choices.

  • Setting out the regulatory and legal framework for Higher education student marketing and recruitment practices as they come under new media, regulatory and legal scrutiny.
  • Addressing criticism of widespread practices including “unconditional offers”, ‘conditional unconditional offers’, bursaries, scholarships, fee discounts, advertising and marketing practices, accommodation promises, and other recruitment incentives as not being in the best interests of students.
  • Understanding the role of the Office for Students and other regulatory bodies (CMA, OIA and ASA) in, advertising, competition, consumer right and trading standards as they are taking an increasing interest in student recruitment practices.
  • How to reconcile demand for changes in recruitment practices with demands for better access, widening participation and other legitimate applications of such incentives and support packages for students.
  • Reconciling these practices to the highly developed UCAS system for collectively managing student applications and how this is changing and evolving.
  • Ensuring regulatory and legal best practice in giving advice, contracting and incentives by universities, student recruitment online sites and schools.
