ICE’s International Summer Schools’ 2015 publicity campaign has been nominated for a prestigious Heist Award for Education Marketing.

The campaign was shortlisted in the ‘Best Student Recruitment Campaign’ category, having successfully increased student enrolments during the month of March by 10% in 2015 compared with the previous year.

Director of International Programmes Sarah Ormrod said:

“These short, residential and truly international programmes change the perceptions and lives of hundreds of students each year.  We are continuing a 90-year-old tradition of welcoming people to an open-access learning experience at one of the world's best universities.

“To stay competitive, we need to make that experience – and the publicity for it – the best we can for a very broad, global audience. We have brought together every possible improvement in direct response to student feedback – to text, to curriculum, to clarity of message, and to attractiveness – in order to improve numbers at this stage in the application cycle.”

The results of the awards will be announced at a gala dinner in Manchester on 9 July 2015.
