Our new undergraduate recruitment campaign for 2017 launched this week with the primary objective of delivering our key unique selling points under TIRI to the 2017 cohort. The campaign features Joni, a recent Performing Arts graduate interviewing some of our lecturers. These interviews appear on 4 separate 3 minute ad breaks on Capital Radio over the next four weeks. We have taken over the entire ad break to give potential applicants a unique insight into the University of Bolton – something never been done on radio before. The special features will be aired at 8.20am and 5.20pm starting today and for the next four weeks.
There are supporting videos, podcasts and the special features available at a new campaign microsite www.askbolton.co.uk, so please take a look and feel free to highlight this site to any prospective students you speak to.
The most important thing is that we take advantage of the hashtag #andsoitbegins so please use whenever you are posting about the University.
