Why Go Virtual
Meet students from the Middle East and recruit them on YouStudy Virtual Education fair
Competition in the international student recruitment market is intensifying every year. While Marketing and recruitment budgets are getting smaller. Participating in every conventional fair is both time and money consuming with challenging return on investment.
Universities expect to meet and connect with students in conventional fairs, but reality is that those who are willing pursue their studies are frequently unable to come to those events.
So, the problem is how to connect universities with students while saving money and time for both parties?
YouStudy Virtual Education fair is the way to make it convenient for both universities and students. It allows you to connect with students without having to leave your office and give students the opportunity to communicate with universities without having to leave home!
Benefits to Universities:
Save time and money. Meet students from different GCC countries (including those already in the UK) without having to travel. No transportation expenses involved. You can attend from anywhere.
Chat, talk to students as you would in a physical education fair, but you have control on to whom you want to dedicate your time and for how long.
You can collect as many student details as you like. Even if you cannot talk to them at the same time, you can always schedule Skype meetings at a convenience time after the event.
YouStudy will take care of all promotional activities. All you need to do is to enjoy communicating with students and be available for their queries.
Benefits to students
Students can access YouStudy fair from anywhere or on the go. All they need is Internet connection.
Just like university representatives, students do not have to spend time on travelling to the venue.
Using a virtual bag - students can collect required information (e.g. prospectuses, videos, etc) with a click of a button. They also have the option to initiate a voice/video chat with university representatives.
Using the group chat facility, students can interact with each other and ask questions.
