Radio ga ga…

Rain rain go away…

Hello from a very wet and rainy Lincoln!

Today has been pretty full on – lots of different things here and there, confirming that every day really is different in the Outreach Team. Creativity has been a big part of the day – we’ve been working on posters for the upcoming UCAS fair, promoting our next Open Day.

Our goal is to create 30 different posters, which when put into 3 sets will tell some form of story about university life & Lincoln. Choosing images, deciding on font & colour schemes was a task in itself and took us longer than expected! Students will need a reason to look at these posters & that’s why they need to be just right. We have until the end of next week, so with the Jubilee celebrations in between, we are cracking on with determination! Continue reading

Marketing receive calls ranging from course questions, fee options, accommodation queries to how long is a piece of string…… so a real chance to test our knowledge– or simply our ability to transfer calls and get familiar with the phones- of which, no two are ever the same!!! . Continue reading

The Outreach Team go live!!!!

I am Hannah and I have to confess, I am new to both blogging and the Higher Education industry, so be nice!

Having experienced a taste of unemployment, I feel very lucky to have been given the chance to be a part of lots of different departments and gain new skills over the year’s internship. But, essentially, for me it’s not about luck but taking opportunities as they present themselves and hopefully making the best of them. Continue reading
