Three compelling opportunities

The most direct communication

We provide answers to their questions in all sorts of ways, but none are more direct and immediate than our email campaigns.

UCAS is where young people come to find out everything there is to know about planning their next step in life – whether that’s deciding on a university or college, choosing a city, looking for jobs or apprenticeships, or finding the perfect accommodation.

Make the most of this direct route to provide students with the information they need to plan and prepare for their futures.

How it works

  1. You tell us who you want to target and what you want to say.
  2. Send us your fully-formed creative or choose from one of our easy and defined templates.
  3. We agree on any personalised content or trigger-based automation.
  4. We launch the campaign and provide you with updates on performance.

On-demand performance data in one place

As part of any digital campaign, you’ll get access to TapClicks, our online dashboard where you can view your performance at any time. This is provided automatically for any campaign you run with us, free of charge.

With daily performance updates, you’ll have the most up-to-date information available when it suits you.

You can view online, or download different reports to PDF, CSV or PPT, by channel, chart/table or as a whole – a quick and handy way to present the results visually and share achievements with your colleagues.
