03/24/2022 15:50 03/24/2022 16:20 Student Recruitment 4.0: Exploring EdTech disruption and the recruitment revolution The international student was perhaps the most disrupted stakeholder in Higher Education when the pandemic interrupted traditional approaches to learning. However, the resulting freedom awarded to students has led to further disruption to international student recruitment. With the university landscape changed forever, how can senior leadership teams continue to provide a quality learning experience for international students?

In this session we’ll be exploring the essential steps in rebuilding a recruitment strategy and the role of artificial intelligence and machine learning in student recruitment. Our speakers will discuss different approaches to capturing and channelling students in order to develop a robust strategy for student recruitment in a post-pandemic world.
