Student Recruitment Media

We produce UCL’s core student recruitment communications, comprising a suite of customer-focused publications across web and print formats and departmental/faculty student recruitment materials. We ensure that the quality of student recruitment output is consistent with UCL’s internationally renowned, globally important status and is compliant with CMA advice and guidance in relation to Consumer Protection Law.

We run UCL's Undergraduate prospectus website, the Graduate prospectus website and the International website, providing information to prospective UCL students across the UK and around the world. The team also provides video and audio support to departments, as well as managing the StudyUCL YouTube channel.

Student Recruitment Operations

We are a professional centre for information on all levels of study and for all recruitment markets: UK, EU and non-EU.

Data and Market Research

We conduct market research to inform recruitment activities and recruitment publication content and design, and to identify the market for proposed new programmes. We also provide advice for faculties and departments into how to engage in market research, and qualitative and quantitative research methods available to them. The Data & Research team also produce interactive datasets to inform student recruitment activity, develop infographics and other data resources to inform decision making and convey the priorities of student recruitment at UCL.
