The information higher education providers need to recruit new students and develop successfully and sustainably.

The UK’s higher education sector is growing at pace.

MTM offers the information higher education providers need in order to increase their student populations and to expand in ways that are sustainable in the long-term. Our qualitative and quantitative market research gives a clear picture of organisations’ current positioning and uncovers the evidence and the intelligence higher education leaders need to make informed decisions on their providers’ future direction.

Why did some students visit but not join? Why did they go elsewhere?

During 10- to 15-minute informal conversations with prospective students who showed an interest in your higher education provider, but ultimately did not choose it, our researchers find out which university or college they did choose, why they considered your provider, what they were looking for, and any push/pull factors that were instrumental in the decision-making process.

  • Telephone interviews with students who did not choose your provider – essential in order to improve conversion rates from offer to acceptance of a place

What were the factors that caused students to leave your provider before the end of the programme of study? What could you have done to keep them?

During 10- to 15-minute informal conversations with students who left early, our researchers find out if they stopped studying all together or chose a different provider, and if so which one, as well as why they decided your provider was no longer right for them and why.

How high is staff morale at your university of college?

Our researchers undertake an online survey of all or sections of your staff to gauge their wellbeing, as well as their opinions on the support available to them. This enables senior leaders to check on staff engagement and to understand any concerns before they become significant and potentially result in the loss of good staff to other providers.
