  1. Who looks after the website?

  3. How do the website and our social media activity affect student recruitment?
    To our knowledge, there is no evidence that student choice is influenced directly by the user-friendliness, usefulness or attractiveness of a University’s website and use of social media. But an informative, useful and user-friendly website and responsive and relevant social media usage can assist the University tell its story, respond to prospective student needs, help them make informed decisions and highlight the different factors that do influence student choice.
