The Student Recruitment team is part of the Marketing and Communications Department at the University, working with schools and colleges to promote the University to prospective students.

A large part of what we do focuses on ensuring that the right students are recruited onto the right courses.

We attend higher education fairs, host school/college visits and offer information, advice and guidance on topics relating to higher education..

Our aim is to raise both educational standards and aspirations and to help remove any barriers that still surround entry to higher education.

The main objective for the team is to encourage informed decisions for students, parents/guardians and for teachers and advisers.
