POSTGRADUATE MARKETING FORUM

The Postgraduate Marketing Forum is intended for all those involved in postgraduate marketing and student recruitment in HE. Postgraduate students, and therefore postgraduate marketing, are crucial to most Universities, but until now there have been few specific opportunities for those who work in the field to meet colleagues and learn from experts and from each other in a forum dedicated to postgraduate marketing and student recruitment issues.

The Forum provides:

A Focus on Postgraduate Marketing and Student Recruitment

….. for the people who work in this complex and wide-ranging area, including:

• academics and administrators from academic departments and faculties
• marketers from departments or faculties with responsibility for postgraduate marketing and student recruitment
• marketers from central departments responsible for postgraduate marketing at a corporate level, and who may advise and work with departments or faculties on postgraduate marketing issues
• all those responsible for marketing masters, postgraduate research, or both

Information

… from experts and through information sharing with colleagues. Jane Penrose, Karen Davies, Claire Gascoigne and colleagues run the events. Jane has a wealth of experience in postgraduate marketing, gained both in a University, and through postgraduate marketing consultancy work. Karen joined PostgraduateStudentships.co.uk in December 2010, and has a very good overview of postgraduate issues, having previously been Marketing Manager for UKPASS at UCAS. Claire Gascoigne, our events expert, joined us from the King's College London marketing department.

We will also invite experts in particular areas of marketing to participate in these events – not as a marketing ‘plug’ for their organisation, but to share their views of what works and what doesn’t and how Universities can benefit from working with external experts.

Opportunities for Discussion and Networking

…. through a mix of informal and more structured networking sessions, to ensure that delegates have the opportunity to meet others with similar concerns and issues to discuss. Events are limited to 50 delegates each (or sometimes less for specialist events), and some parts will be broken down into small groups to facilitate discussion.

If you would like to discuss the forum with us, or have any queries, please do email us on pgforum@postgraduatestudentships.co.uk

POSTGRADUATE MARKETING FORUM EMAIL DISCUSSION LIST

Our free discussion list, which has been set up using the Jiscmail list service, is intended for everyone who works in HE involved in any aspect of marketing, recruitment and/or admissions relating to postgraduate students, including marketers, administrators and academics. To join the list, you do not have to have attended a Forum event. We hope you will find it a useful discussion Forum and we welcome contributions and participation from a wide range of HE staff working in this field: please do pass this information to any colleagues you think may be interested.

You can post questions or issues to the list relating to postgraduate marketing, admissions or student recruitment that you would like to discuss with colleagues, and we will also announce future Forum sessions, plus pass on information about any other postgraduate marketing related events and training sessions provided by other organisations. Other than training sessions or events, the list may not be used for commercial promotion, although of course registered list members can discuss their experiences of commercial products or providers.

To join the list you can either:
1. leave a message on the contact form on PostgraduateStudentships.co.uk with your name and a brief explanation of your interest in postgraduate marketing issues,
OR
2. join the list yourself by sending the following email:
