Marketing update


I write this just as we have managed to get Health Sciences' very own Katy Elliott on the University of Southampton's main homepage.

Katy does not only appear here but also in the University's new prospectus for 2015, in a full double page spread talking about her ambition and the work she has done in Malawi.

Health Sciences has been appearing a lot in the media lately too, we hope you didn't miss ITV's Daybreak starring Health Sciences' nursing degree students Alex Collyer and Katy Elliott, and Professor Peter Griffiths. If you did you can catch some of it here.

This piece was great in bringing together students and experts and, even though it meant a 3am start for the media and marketing teams to ensure the film crew had everything they needed, it was worthwhile in the amount of coverage it gained. The piece also managed to get most of our key messages in to promote the Faculty - a great effort all round!

The Faculty's new undergraduate prospectus is now available for the next recruitment drive for 2015 and will be added to the website soon.  Come and pick up a printed copy from us on the 4th Floor or view it as a page-turner here. Each year the prospectus gets better, more visual and more engaging and remains a key tool to aid recruitment. Thanks to all of the academic staff who gave up their time to help us get this done.

Our work however is not all around underpinning the undergraduate recruitment effort. On the research side we have started the special Health Sciences edition of New Boundaries which is the corporate research publication. This publication showcases research being undertaken in the Faculty. We work with the Faculty and research teams to provide content.

We also attended the first Faculty research strategy meeting yesterday and this will inform how we can support raising the profile of the Faculty's research and researchers.

We are very much involved in the current business planning round with the Faculty. Gaining an understanding of what the Faculty is looking to achieve in the next few years will drive our marketing plans for the future and ensure that we are supporting this strategy in any way we can across education, research and enterprise.

"Telling our Story" is one of the wider University  "strategic enablers" and, as part of a wider comms and marketing team, we will be working on helping you tell our Faculty story in the coming months. More to follow there...

If you would like to get involved in any of our work, have a story to tell or would like to catch up with the team, do come and see us on the 4th Floor. We would love to see you!

Best Wishes,

Sarah, Lisa and Rebekah
