International Student Recruitment Guidelines

International student recruitment guidance notes 

Attracting more international students continues to be a strategic priority for the University; they enrich the student experience of home students, provide welcome diversity, bring international and intercultural perspectives into the curriculum and provide a different income stream.

It is essential that we offer a friendly and welcoming approach to applicants and ensure the customer journey is streamlined and efficient. We need to ensure quick turn round of applications or we risk losing students to other institutions who act quicker. We will also seek to maximise conversion of offer holders as well as generating good quality applications through agents and marketing activity.

The International Team will facilitate welcome and transition activities and manage all marketing, exchange and partnership activity.

We are currently reviewing our processes for 2020 entry - new guidelines for staff will be available here as soon as they are approved by SMT.
