Answers

1. Who looks after the website? 

Each subject area/division has an academic Web Officer, who has an overall responsibility for the webpages of their subject area(s). You can find their contact details in the Web Contacts section below. 

Also, Dipika Mummery (dipika.mummery@manchester.ac.uk), SALC Digital Content Editor, is available to work with Web Officers on maintaining their web pages. PSS colleagues maintain and update School-wide webpages.

2. Who is the Web Officer of my Subject Area/Division?

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.

However, an informative, useful and user-friendly website and responsive and relevant social media usage can assist the University in telling its story, responding to prospective student needs, helping them make informed decisions and highlighting the different factors that do influence student choice.

Please contact your Subject Area Web Officer (see the Web Contacts section below). In most cases, they are able to make amendments to existing content; if not, they can escalate the issue.
