FindAUniversity Postgraduate Marketing Conference

Our FindAUniversity Postgraduate Marketing Conference is back for Spring 2020 in central London and it's going to be our BIGGEST conference yet. Whether you're an experienced manager, new to the higher education sector, interested or involved in postgraduate recruitment, then this conference is for you!

New for 2020, our conference will run different streams allowing you to pick and choose which breakout workshops and presentation sessions you participate in. This means you'll be able to build a bespoke schedule filled with relevant sessions based on your role, experience and areas of interest.

Now accredited by the CIM Higher & Further Education Group, your attendance at this conference will count towards your CIM CPD credits.

With early bird rates starting from £200 +VAT*, don't miss out on booking early to secure your discounted delegate rate.


Our high-profile keynote speakers will be running plenary sessions for all delegates, covering inspirational campaigns, the latest insight, data and case-studies of postgraduate student recruitment.

We also know it's just as important to come away with practical knowledge and ideas to implement, and our breakout sessions are intended to do just that.

Throughout the event, you'll have opportunities to meet with speakers and delegates - whether this be in a workshop session, over lunch or at our networking drinks reception. Take the opportunity to share best-practice, discuss the challenges in HE and be inspired by others.
