Top Tips For Universities – Avoid Empty Lecture Theatres In September
Make Sure Your University is a Firm Choice This Year
As students up and down the UK start to confirm their choices for the University they wish to study at, it is important that Universities throw their hat in the ring now.
Choosing the right place to study is a large part of a students’ life and a difficult decision to make and with less and less students opting to go down the university route in the first place, it is important you get your message out there now to ensure full lecture theatres come September. There are opportunities for students to adjust their choices even after this confirmation period so it is important to remain active right up until the last moment.
Even if potential students have not been previously aware of your university, there are multiple aspects that a student will be considering at this point, that you can use to market yourself as the ideal:
- What courses are offered?
A good way of increasing interest is by highlighting any high ranking courses you have available, especially if other universities may not offer these courses. Use promotional products relevant to such courses to inspire students in the consideration phase. A person is more likely to remember you and that course if they have a physical reminder. This could also be handy if you are trying to increase intake for that particular course.
- How welcoming is the university?
Moving to university is a scary notion for potential students, which makes choosing the right place for them, even more important. In order to make sure you are the university to pick, make sure potential students generate a positive perception of your university.
Establishing a positive and welcoming impression will help to make students feel as if they will be happy in their new home away from home. Printed goods are a good way of getting your name out there and creating a bond between the recipients and your brand. These marketing tools are also cost-effective, with many of the products costing less than £1 per item.
A Few Ideas For Universities
Why not include a small printed gift such as a Bookmark Memo Pad to help them make notes as they revise for upcoming exams, or a printed Coaster for the copious amounts of tea and coffee they will surely need throughout the exam period. Showing some support for students who are revising and working tirelessly to attain the grades they need to go to university is a great way of establishing a bond.
