Making an impact: marketing and communications in higher education

8 Nov 2018, 09:30 - 16:30
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom


Following the success of last year's event, we will be running this national, one day conference again for 2018. Making an impact: marketing and communications in higher education will bring together communications, marketing, external relations and digital professionals to discuss the particular nature of university marketing and communications, to draw inspiration from outside the sector, and to examine case studies to help you progress and enhance your own marketing and communications strategy.

Why should you attend?

Marketing is evolving. The higher education sector is changing. The 24/7 access of social media is creating new challenges and opportunities for organisations. As university marketing and communications professionals, you need to keep up with both sector changes and increasingly demanding target audiences.

In recent years, universities have been under the spotlight both positively and negatively, and it is important that you are working to a communications model which reaches all of your stakeholders and results in positive actions which deliver your aims.

For these reasons, we are bringing together communications and marketing specialists from a number of sectors to help you build a holistic and adaptable strategy to ensure that you are able to be at the forefront of this ever-evolving digital world.

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
​We have a range of sponsorship opportunities​​ available at this event. Please contact Esther Dudley, Head of Events and Engagement for information. tel: 020 7419 5412; email: esther.dudley@universitiesuk.ac.uk​.
