Marketing and communications in Higher Education

27 Nov 2019, 09:30 - 17:00
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom


Universities UK's annual Marketing and communications in higher education conference returns. A highlight of the year, this one-day event will bring together communications, marketing, external relations and digital professionals to discuss the changing communications landscape we find ourselves in, and the associated risks and opportunities.

Why should you attend?

The prevalence of social media is blurring lines between the public and private spheres. This presents a great opportunity for universities to engage students on a more personal level than ever before, while an increasingly rapacious news cycle and distrustful political atmosphere are creating a challenging environment for universities to make their case to the public.

Who should attend?

This conference will be useful for staff who have responsibility for or play a part in the communications and marketing strategy of their organisation. Relevant job titles include:

  • Director/Head of Communications
  • Director/Head of External Relations
  • Director/Head of Public Affairs
  • Director/Head of Marketing and Student Recruitment
  • Communications/Marketing Manager/Officer
  • Head of Campaigns
  • Head of Media/Media Manager
  • Social Media Manager
