The importance of speaking to your Alumni Network

A lifelong relationship:

Alumni provide the best marketing and promotion across their personal and professional networks, benefiting the university’s reputation and level of interest. These relationships should be utilised to increase student requirement for the forth coming academic year.

Boosting student recruitment:

Alumni students can share their experiences with future potential students through their involvement in marketing and events. This first-hand expertise will increase connections with potential students and the university, increasing the likelihood of them applying.

Supporting the ambitions of Universities and Alumni students:

Connecting with your Alumni students will give them an opportunity to give back to their universities, and gain experience from participating in professional mentoring programmes whilst feeling the benefits of providing a role model to others. Many Alumni students won’t be aware of the innovative schemes offered by universities. Increasing marketing for such schemes will increase return on investment opportunities for students and universities, whilst increasing personal development.

Global opportunities:

With the recent increase in international students’ interest in studying in the UK, universities must act now to reach this audience. International Alumni students return home and discuss their experiences with other students. This extends your institutions reach in a more reliable way than an email to a careers officer. The personal touch and first-hand experience will create a level of trust which otherwise is difficult to develop via online overseas recruitment alone.
