Who should attend

This session will interest you if you:

  • are responsible for recruiting postgraduate taught students
  • field enquiries from prospective postgraduate taught students
  • manage digital channels targeting prospective postgraduate taught students, including degree finder entries


This work is all part of the project our team is undertaking to transform the central provision for prospective students, including our degree finders. While last year we focused on the undergraduate prospective student experience, this year we have turned our attention to postgraduate students.

Blog posts on designing the future state of prospective student online provision

We’re focusing on research and taught students simultaneously, but have started designing the new postgraduate taught content type first.

This session will cover the research we did on postgraduate taught students and how that has informed the content and design choices we’ve made so far.

If you’re interested in the postgraduate research experience, too, we’re also running an event on 4 December to playback what we learned in our user research of this audience.
