Reach the right students on the right channels. We’re one of the biggest education sites in the UK – we're ahead of Google when it comes to students seeking information about higher education options.

Targeted advertising through our unrivalled data

Develop a bespoke digital campaign with UCAS, the trusted higher education and apprenticeships brand. From email and direct mail to social media and display, connect your brand to students when they're most engaged.

Choose the audience you want to reach and how you’d like to reach them – we’ll work with you to create smart, high-quality messaging that blends seamlessly into their online experience and delivers proven ROI.

Our multichannel campaigns are three times more likely to convert than single channel activity for higher education providers and commercial brands.

Driving conversion
We helped a prestigious publishing company to raise awareness and drive student subscriptions using a digital campaign. A seamless combination of direct mail, content articles and display ads timed across the student journey achieved 4,500 conversions in year 1 alone. Based on our joint success, the partnership was extended.

Tailor your digital campaign across the student journey

1. Raise awareness

During the discovery stage of a student’s journey, we use a range of channels to share relevant information and brands with them, raising awareness and directing them to your content.

2. Boost consideration

In the application stage, we focus our communications to drive traffic to your site. With strong click-through rates to conversion content, you'll be reaching students who are ready to take action.

3. Achieve conversion

We then focus multi-channel activity on conversion – at the times students need to source equipment and study resources, confirm their course and a place to live – plus finance, travel and lifestyle subscriptions.

Increasing market share

To raise awareness and drive new student bank account openings, a high street bank commissioned a high-impact digital campaign with UCAS – including paid media, bespoke emails, and display ads on ucas.com.
