Unibuddy - An online platform that enables prospective students to chat with student ambassadors
A pilot has recently been launched to coincide with clearing. A Service Management team has been established along with profiles and links to twenty six student ambassadors, accessible via UCAS and the Edinburgh University web-site.
A potential aid to student recruitment, Unibuddy as a communication tool can offer an insight into student life. Questions/concerns that prospective students might have can be answered and thereafter, be better placed to make an informed decision on choice.
In future months working in collaboration with staff from the Web Content, Communications and Marketing Team, further engagement will be encouraged with wider support being offered to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
