Education Marketing student recruitment
The domestic and international student recruitment market is a highly competitive area.
Whether attracting students to secondary schools, vocational institutes, or higher education, there will be many student options in one city alone. If you add interstate possibilities as well, the competition is enormous.
With proximity to other schools, colleges, and institutes, a comparison looks pretty accessible if you are a domestic student. And if you are a prospective international student, the web is one of the first point of call to gather information.
However, the decision-making process is so much more complex than that. And as an educational provider, you must build strategies to become the prospective student’s first choice as they move through the stages of interest, enquiry of applications, offer stage, confirmation of enrolment, and finally, becoming a new student.
The decision-making journey is long, sometimes up to 18-24 months. There are many decision points along the way, and they are different depending on if it’s a domestic or international student.
Education marketing and student considerations
Here is a list combined list of student considerations in no particular order—the actual education itself, the prospects of careers, the school’s reputation and brand, the learning facilities, student support, student experience, the application turn-around time, pathways options, packaged programs, Elicos accessibility, entry requirements, range of programs and courses, regulations, student life on campus, industry relationships, the destination, scholarships, placement opportunities, the value, the institute’s values, specialisation, accessible resources, word of mouth, and the list goes on.
All these areas will form part of the student’s decision making, and the educational provider’s opportunity to differentiate themselves.
