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 !

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. 

Baku Autumn 2015: Report

UK universities returned to Baku with Studybritish.com for a full programme of exhibition, networking and alumni events. 

ukaz_roundtable_webWith the emphasis on building capacity and developing HE in Azerbaijan, the Ministry of Education encouraged us to explore HE cooperation and partnerships between UK and Azerbaijani institutions. During a UK – Azerbaijan Round Table Meeting, UK and Azerbaijan international relations colleagues discussed best practice and realistic opportunities for working together in the next 5 years.

On the Friday evening alumni from 3 of the visiting universities – Kings College London, University College London and Manchester University – competed in a University Challenge Quiz, facing questions about life in the UK, international relations, UK education…with bonus rounds testing the alumni to their limits.

On the Saturday, more than 200 students from local schools and universities came to the Hilton for our UK University exhibition. Despite the current mystery surrounding the government scholarship programme, interest was high from ambitious future UG’s and PG’s.
