Future Students, Communications and Marketing

We lead on student recruitment strategy across the University, providing information and advice services to prospective and current students, schools and colleges, parents and carers, from pre-enquiry to graduation.

Enabling student success is at the heart of everything we do, by driving the University's local, national and global reputation, attracting and converting the right students, and inspiring a culture of pride and engagement amongst the UWE Bristol community.

UWE Bristol staff can find out more about the Department and each of the teams on the Future Students, Communications and Marketing page (staff login required).
