Purpose of the Conference

Universities and Higher Education colleges know that 2017 is an important year for patterns of student recruitment.

In a PA Consulting survey earlier this year 25% of Vice-Chancellors revealed they were concerned about the responsiveness of their institution to aggressive pricing and innovative offers from competitors.

Despite this harsh environment however there are still many opportunities to thrive and succeed for adaptable, nimble institutions that are willing to innovate and be responsive to students.

And the Chancellor of the Exchequer has added new opportunities in his budget through access to funding for part time students and doctoral students for 2018. Higher Education management teams looking to stay ahead of these developments should attend this event.

At this event you will

  • Hear up to date information on trends in the student marketplace
  • Insight into influences on student choice
  • Feedback on new offers being made to students
  • How to build commitment to attend
  • How important distinctiveness can be
  • Maintaining consistent online messages and images
  • The importance of your brand and reputation
  • Examine whether you have a strong differential offer
  • What students want – what makes them commit?
  • Matching alternative offers in the market place
  • Competition lessons from other sectors
