It’s Time recruitment campaign

For the first time, the University is creating an integrated marketing campaign for clearing and late conversion: It's Time. The objective of this campaign is both to differentiate The University of Manchester from other universities in a crowded marketplace over the clearing period via impactful branding and messaging, and to create a buzz and excitement around coming to Manchester for our offer holders.

  • Content pack full of useful information – background, objectives and timings (PDF document, 520KB)
  • Detailed social media plan (Excel document, 25KB)
  • General digital assets (Zip folder, 21MB) Please only use these after reading the content pack and style guide to ensure assets are being used at the right point in the cycle
  • Style toolkit (PDF document, 2.4MB)
