Hey there, University Student Recruitment Managers. Welcome back! As the academic year draws closer, it’s time to buckle up for the new challenges and opportunities that come with the new intake of students. We know that you have set high goals for student recruitment this year, and we are here to help you achieve them.
Data analytics plays a critical role in student recruitment for higher education institutions. Here are some of the reasons why data analytics is important in student recruitment:
- Identifying potential students: Data analytics helps institutions identify and target potential students who are more likely to apply and enroll. By analyzing data on students’ academic performance, interests, and behavior patterns, institutions can create targeted recruitment strategies and outreach campaigns.
We listened to you. We did vast research to find out today´s needs of both Students and Universities and WebinarLeads4you proudly presents a Student Community through their new and improved The Study Abroad Portal.
The idea is simple: Get Students involved and let them connect amongst themselves to share tips, resolve questions and in turn you will improve your Conversion-rates.
Webinars are one of the strongest, best value-for-money channels you can use to bring potential clients from Awareness to Conversion (see our previous blog!). However they are not only interesting to attract new leads, but also show customers, friends, colleagues and prospects that there is in-house knowledge about specific themes and is a sign of authority and thought leadership and increases customer trust.
Creative ways to recruit students
Through the years the Universities around the world from America to Asia have implemented different ways of recruiting new students. Some of them have been a less effective, others a successful strategy of student recruitment.
In order to be successful in your student recruitment efforts your University or College must not only look at what others have done with success but also implement new creative ways to engage students and to make them fall in love with your university, with your programme and with your location.
