Cost-effective content creation: harnessing the power of International Student Ambassadors

Middlesex University has shifted from spending lots of money on promotional videos to relying on international student ambassadors to create videos fit for various social media channels like TikTok or Reels. The result was a faster turnaround with improved feedback from prospects. Learn in this session how you can successfully train and work with your students to get the most out of their content creation expertise.

Converting and onboarding offer-holders through the power of CRM automation

Until your offerholders actually set foot on campus, you compete with other universities to actually enrol them. Depending on your application timeline, this can mean a long period - during which you can use various approaches in convincing students that your university is the right choice for them. In this session we’ll explore what methods bear fruit and how you might use your CRM to facilitate such activities.

Closing remarks

19:00 - ???


Stay tuned - we’ll soon reveal our evening plans!

Location and Venue

The Study.eu Digital Marketing Day will take place in central Vienna, Austria at the Haus der Ingenieure (House of Engineers, Eschenbachgasse 9, 1010 Vienna) on the 2nd floor, in proximity to some of the city’s most famous landmarks.

Getting to Haus der Ingenieure…

  • …from VIE airport: By train, you can reach the venue in around 45 minutes. The closest stations are Karlsplatz, Burgring and Volkstheater.
  • …by train: There are several trains and trams from the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) with which you can reach the venue in 20-30 minutes.

There will also be an afterparty in the evening – so don’t travel home too early! Details will follow.

Travelling sustainably

We encourage you to take the train if possible. If you fly and would like to offset the CO2e footprint, we recommend Atmosfair or myclimate.org. For example, offsetting a London-Vienna roundtrip flight in an A320 or 737-800 is estimated at less than €15 / £15.

Book your place and join us in Vienna!

For a productive conference experience, tickets can only be booked by representatives of universities and other higher education institutions (HEIs) as well as governmental agencies.

We expect up to 65 guests joining us. If you are interested in joining with more than 2 colleagues from your university, please contact us directly. Also, if you represent a service provider or other type of organisation and would like to attend, please get in touch.

Ticket prices include 20% Austrian VAT and an invoice will be sent to you automatically after purchase.

Join confirmed attendees from (updated 22 September): Austria ⛰️, Belgium 🍟, Czechia 🍻, Denmark 🧜‍♀️, France 🥐, Germany 🥨, Hungary 🫑, Lithuania 🏀, the Netherlands 🌷, Norway ⛷️, Poland 🥟, Spain 💃, Sweden 🦌, Turkey 🧿, and the United Kingdom 💂

Refund policy

We are planning the event with diligence, and are fully confident that the conference can take place as planned. Nonetheless, the past two and a half years taught us to prepare for surprises, so here’s our refund policy: If the event cannot take place at all, you will receive a full refund on your ticket purchase. If the event should have to be moved to a different date at which neither you nor a colleague can attend, you will also receive a full refund if you let us know when we announce the new date. If you cannot attend e.g. because of illness, you can transfer the ticket to a colleague at your organisation (but please inform us in advance). For anything not covered here, contact us and we’ll find a solution!

Call for Proposals

You want to speak at the Study.eu Digital Marketing Day 2023 in Vienna?

We’re opening a call for session proposals on topics within digital marketing & recruitment in the international higher education sector.

Speakers attend the conference free and are offered a remote coaching session with an experienced presentation trainer.

We look forward to hearing from you! The deadline for proposals is 31 July, but the earlier we hear from you the better. Submit your idea below and we’ll be in touch about next steps.
