Understanding the student mindset has never been harder. With Covid-19 disrupting this year’s recruitment and enrolment cycle, and so much uncertainty around what will happen in the coming academic year, no one knows for sure how students will respond or what the impact will be.
But how can you make strategic marketing decisions when the landscape has changed so dramatically? By listening to students.
Over 1.2 million students regularly turn to Student Hut for advice; engaging with our unique content, taking part in our market research and telling us what they really want to see from universities and HE institutions.

Our broad audience of decision-makers at every level and in every corner of higher education have found the insights into the way student opinion has changed over time useful from multiple perspectives, and the way in which the team at Student Hut have kept pace with the news and tested student sentiment towards it has kept the insights fresh and actionable – Jim Dickinson, associate editor, WONKHE
