While student recruitment is a vital component leading to the success of a school, research shows that less than half of all higher education institutions have a clear strategy that guides the development of their recruitment efforts. This is hardly surprising, given the rapid expansion of recruitment needs and the numerous, and variably efficient, tools available. Perhaps the most important, but still widely untapped resource for student recruitment is the internet. Face-to-face techniques, like Open Days and fairs are still effective methods of recruiting students, but online and e-recruitment strategies are quickly becoming the most successful ways to engage with prospective students. These methods become even more important when a school wants to recruit internationally. But not all digital recruitment strategies are worth the effort or the cost, and what works for one school will not necessarily work for another.
