Postgrad Partnerships

Our clients also benefit from significant additional exposure from our unique partnership network. We choose to only work with prestigious partners to ensure our primary goal is met of having high quality students using our website. We are not about chasing low quality, high volume traffic as it wastes everyone’s time!

We focus on attracting students who are genuinely interested in PG study. Alongside our numerous marketing initiatives, these premium partnerships offer clients unique coverage to otherwise inaccessible students.

All of our partners are a perfect fit with our marketing strategy. To put it simply, the calibre of the students using Postgrad.com is crucial to our success, and to that of our clients.

Chevening Scholarships

This partnership with Chevening, the UK government’s global masters scholarship program funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), was set up in 2015. Since July 2015, Chevening has hosted a widget of Postgrad.com’s UK course search http://www.chevening.org/find-a-course. In 2016 alone 500,000 students used this comprehensive UK course search facility. These students are not just future scholars but encompass a range of students who are serious about studying in the UK. Chevening say: “This is a key development for our site and one our students love. It ensures the Chevening site is a one-stop shop for our students and it will encourage those students applying for a scholarship to consider a wide range of UK institutions before making their final decision. Postgrad Solutions have been fantastic to work with.”

Marshall Scholarships

This strategic partnership was set up in 2017 and provides us with a unique opportunity to access students from the USA. Marshall Scholarships are funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and are overseen by the Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission. These scholarships are renowned for being the most sought-after international scholarships available to American students. Their website is used by over 100,000 prospective American postgrad students per year. The team at Postgrad Solutions is delighted to be partnering with them this year.

* Encourage prospective students to find your PGCEs

Department/school profiles are a core feature of all our PGCE clients’ advertising campaigns, and by opting for a school or department profile, your institution will immediately be listed at the top of our comprehensive A-Z listing of universities, taking priority over the A-Z listing of all non-advertisers. Your institution will not only place higher in our search results, but it will also be just one click away from getting postgraduate students directly to your website with integrated live links. Please note, non-advertisers are placed below the advertisers and do not benefit from live url link.

Newsletters and E-shots

Gain direct access to our 6,500+ student database of prospective PGCE and Teaching postgraduate students. (NB Total database exceeds 43,000 students). This database is of the highest quality, demonstrated by our high open and click-through rates. Our policy is to automatically delete students after 24 months to ensure we really are dealing with students that can be influenced in their decision-making. We are not a company after numbers and volume on a database we only want to talk to high quality relevant students who are still looking for a PGCE course. With open rates at an average of 18% and click-through rates of 5%, our data quality speaks for itself.

We offer both bespoke e-shots and entries into our monthly member newsletter, The Postgrad Pundit. You can choose to directly target a subject or country niche, or alternatively join forces with other prestigious universities in one of our monthly newsletters.
