Communications and marketing professionals have the opportunity to hear about innovation and best practice from expert practitioners who offer tools and techniques learned from their own successful campaigns.
The programme will be taking place over 1 full day (BST timezone), and all sessions will be recorded to watch back later.
Welcome from the Chairs
Hello Student Communicators, we are both delighted to be your co-chairs for this year’s Student Communications Conference.
What a year it’s been for student comms! Our teams have been pulled in all directions, as we’ve found ourselves at the heart of responding to the pandemic. We’ve seen changing priorities, new technologies, and rarely any quiet days. That’s why we invite you to spend a day taking stock of what’s gone, what we’ve all learned and what we can do next.
We’re very excited to be working with a fantastic array of speakers from around the student comms community. Their interactive sessions will give us all a much needed opportunity to step back and get inspired ahead of the next academic year. We look forward to seeing you there and please do get in touch if you have any questions.

"I would recommend this conference for anyone in a student communications role. Having the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the UK as well as just chat to people from other institutions is so valuable. Looking forward to 2021 already!"
"It was really worthwhile to meet colleagues from across the sector to share knowledge and experience."
"A wonderful opportunity to meet new colleagues and explore their ideas and approaches."
"Being in a warm and professional environment where it felt everyone was united in wanting to just be better and tackle the shared challenges of communicating with students head-on. Being new to higher education I have been struck with how competitive universities are when talking to the same audience so it was fantastic to feel this was a space with a focus on best practice on how we speak to not only potential but existing students."
