X factor has finished, it must be nearly Christmas! (I didn’t follow it this year…but do we think James Arthur will be number one?!) Luckily, this is not the only indication; the weather is frosty and everywhere decorated with lights and of course, not forgetting Emma’s last post which made me feel really festive!
Following on from Emma’s post ‘Dispelling the myths of Student Finance‘ the Outreach Team are busy putting together project to (hopefully) do just that!
Here’s a quick mini blog to say HELLO The Outreach Team is alive but we are super busy at the moment. It’s a really hectic time for the Higher Education world at the moment, from the end of August until the end of October…possibly November we will be in and out of the office working on different projects all of which revolve around the new academic year starting.

Well, this is definitely long over due! Just over a month ago, Hannah and I went to Birmingham for a few days to attend some Higher Education events – we were there representing the University, informing prospective students about all of our courses, handing out prospectus’ and generally promoting ourselves! This is what happened: Continue reading
Well, this is my first day back in the office in what feels like AGES. I’ve just got back from Latitude Festival – I had an amazing few days seeing some fantastic live music, comedy, poetry and theatre. Four loads of washing later and I think I have just about got rid of the mud out of my clothes! So now it’s back to reality… Continue reading
It feels like forever since I’ve had chance to blog. I have been on annual leave and before that attending events. The time is flying past and I can’t believe it is into July! I do have some pictures from mine and Emma’s Birmingham events that I will endeavour to upload very soon along with a detailed account of our trip! Sufficed to say it was very enjoyable, tiring, lot of talking and smiling and driving!!! Continue reading
So it has been quite some time since I last wrote a blog here. This has mainly because due to events and days off I haven’t spent a long time in the office. So I suppose I best give an update on what I have been getting up to. I have been out and about attending events in Scunthorpe for Higher Education evening at colleges, as well as manning the Student Affairs stand (along with Emma) during the post-graduate open day. The first event was really quite busy, handing out dozens of prospectuses left, right and centre. It was quite an eye-opening to realise how much detailed knowledge about each course the marketing department know (Gareth from marketing attended this event with us), and how much we really are going to have learn when we start attending the larger HE and UCAS fairs across the country.
Nicola and I are back in the office! If only briefly! The week promises more events, driving around the country and bringing the delights of Lincoln and the University to prospective students.
I have really enjoyed the last week, despite being tiring and long it was nice to take some responsibility and have the freedom and independence to utilise the new knowledge and skills we have gained over the last two months.
Today is busy and therefore my post will have to be brief, I hope that after the rush I can sit down and reflect on the past few days and write a much more comprehensive account of the events that we attended. Continue reading
Hello!- I’m back! Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and making the most of the beautiful June weather, apparently we have one more day of sunshine before the rain!
This is, again, only a fleeting post as I have just got in from an event and am out all week with Marketing and my team members attending external UCAS events and representing the University.
