On Wednesday 14th November we welcomed government representatives to join us at our first ever Bridging the Gap in London. We came together to share insights into the minds and behaviour of young people with the objective to bridge the gap between students and government, here’s a round-up of the day.
Each year we survey thousands of students to discover their perceptions of the options available to them after school, college or university to give you a unique insight into their decision-making journey.
On average international students consider three other countries in addition to the UK when deciding where to study. So, how can you ensure both the UK and your university stand out amongst the crowd?
We delved into the data on The Student Room to identify the top subject interests from international students.
We’re delighted to announce The Student Room has recently been certified by the Cyber Essentials standard, a Government backed scheme to help businesses protect themselves against cyber threats.
As the only market set for growth between now and 2022, international students are central to the sustainability of Higher Education. This year, the total number of foreign applications to British universities surpassed 100,000 for the first time ever and UCAS reported an 11% growth from 2017 in non-EU applications.
What are the reasons for students to stay in education after their undergraduate degree? What influences their decision to do a postgraduate degree? We’ve pulled key insights from activity on The Student Room to give you a unique window into students’ behaviour and motivations when it comes to postgraduate (PG) study.
The launch of our exclusive event series, ‘Bridging the gap’, will connect government and students. We’re inviting representatives from all departments to join us in amplifying the student voice, as we share with them a route into the minds of young people, advising on how, when and what to communicate to students to ensure you get maximum and genuine engagement.
Young people are more switched-on and consumer savvy than ever. In a digital world where they’re constantly inundated with advertisements of new products, brand deals and the latest discounts, how do you know what you’re offering is cutting through the noise? And most importantly how do you know it’s what your target audience wants to hear?
Pester power is the influence children have when persuading their parents to buy advertised goods. It tends to be an outdated term that’s usually portrayed negatively in the press. However, we’re proposing pester power is very much still alive and happening not only in children’s early years but all the way through to their teens.
