Total Recruitment – Baku Autumn 2017

This weekend Studybritish.com hosted a full programme of recruitment activities for high-end UK universities in Baku, Azerbaijan.

“Thanks for a good event – we can always rely on you guys to deliver! As we know it’s about being targeted and I was pleased with the type of visitors to the fair”.
Joanne Jacobs, University of Manchester.

In a challenging market all channels are important to maximise recruitment opportunities, and Studybritish.com (a division of Levant Education) aims for a ‘Total Recruitment’ performance, with marketing initiatives including high school visits, online and social media, alumni events and the exhibition, our 10th since 2012.

With concerns about the economy in Azerbaijan and falling recruitment numbers, it was rewarding to see that the strength and appeal of UK education endures.

See you back in Baku next year !

Azerbaijan Mission Report October 2016

Leading UK universities, including London Schools of Economics & Political Science, Kings College London, Warwick University, Manchester University and University College London, joined the Studybritish.com HE exhibition in Baku last week.

sb_exhibit_oct16o

Despite fears of reduced demand due to the local economy, global oil prices and the suspension of the Ministry of Education scholarship, interest was strong and high achieving students remain attracted to studying  in the UK.

Applications from self-funded students for 2017 have started more strongly that last year, and there are hopes for a return of the state scholarship next year, focussed on PG courses in ministry identified subjects, and joint programmes held in both countries.

The exclusive Studybritish.com Alumni Reception again attracted a good number of UK university alumni, a vital source of university ‘ambassadors’ and referral enquiries for the future. University representatives were then treated to an evening of blues jazz at an exclusive restaurant, with the International Jazz Festival taking place in Baku.

The Studybritish.com HE Exhibition takes place in October and April every year, and was the first UK-focussed education event in Azerbaijan, developed with support from the FCO and UKTI. Since 2013 the British Council has offered a competing event, which helps their local sales of IELTS courses and tests, products that globally help the BC earn over £1 billion per year. In 2016 the BC were forced to issue an apology to Levant Education for unfair competitive exploitation of Levant’s cooperation with UKTI / FCO in 2011/12.

Levant Education continues to be committed to Azerbaijan, working with universities on a variety of levels: networking, alumni events, recruitment events and market analysis. The majority of Levant’s clients use its services to improve brand awareness and direct recruitment, an increasingly important channel for university recruitment to the UK.

The Studybritish.com Exhibition and related events will return to Baku in October.

The Independent Complaints Body Verita will soon publish its report into the behaviour of the British Council in Azerbaijan in particular. Levant Education agreed cooperation with the British Council to launch UK-focussed events in Azerbaijan and Turkey in 2012, and paid UKTI for support services. The British Council then used that cooperation and support to launch a competing events, despite assurances of support and non-competition.
