Confirmation, Adjustment and Clearing 2017

If your role brings you into contact with some of our key recruitment dates, this update is for you.

A Level results day is on 17 August this year. Our digital advertising campaign for advance registration will run from 1-19 August, encouraging potential students to register with us.

Our Marketing Team has put together a toolkit of assets for use across your own communication channels to promote Confirmation, Adjustment and Clearing 2017. 

Your communications will be part of a wider campaign comprising social media, University homepage coverage, video content, digital advertising, media relations and direct marketing from Admissions and Recruitment.

The toolkit includes images, graphics, copy and guidance for online and social media use.

- Images of Firth Court, the Students’ Union, Information Commons and some learning and teaching images to use on your department websites – you can choose to use any of these.
- We have included two versions of suggested copy for the run up to (1-16 Aug) and from results day (17-21 Aug).
- The kit includes social media graphics to use on the 16 August (a good luck message) and various graphics and pinned posts to use on results days itself.
