Last year we announced our strategic partnership with Chevening, the UK government’s global Master’s scholarship programme funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. Since June 2015 Chevening has been hosting an iframe of Postgrad.com’s UK course search, and we are delighted to announce that this continuing partnership with Chevening is proving to be extremely beneficial.
The number of new users and the average time spent on Postgrad.com has been increasing since we formed the partnership last year. In fact, from the 1st June 2015-31st May 2016, there were 420,000 sessions on the Postgrad Course Search on Chevening.org – and this has equated to 240,000 new users. Plus, the average time spent on our site by these prospective Chevening scholars is an impressive 8 minutes 12 seconds.
The look and feel of our iframe is now being updated, and this will be going live on Chevening.org in a brand new format in July 2016 – just in time for the opening of new applications for Chevening bursaries in August 2016. This new course search iframe will be even more user friendly and fully mobile compatible.
