Student recruitment is not a new development within the higher education sector. Universities and schools have always used recruitment strategies to maintain and grow their student bodies, but the shift towards digital media means that more schools and institutions are relying on software and IT for their recruitment and admissions needs. And their efforts are paying off. Twenty-first century students are, in a word, connected. Almost every aspect of the modern student’s life is linked to technology, and the most effective way to engage with prospective students is through online digital platforms.
According to industry research, web-based tools and strategies are the best way for universities to recruit and admit students. Email campaigns, user-friendly websites, and online recruitment produce the best results for schools hoping to reach the widest, most qualified students. But digital recruitment strategies and admissions software require a lot of maintenance and technological expertise. Even schools with dedicated recruitment IT teams will find that the time and effort needed to develop and optimize institutional recruitment and admissions software can be daunting.
