Jen is the Head of the “UKIB” team, which includes the UK, Ireland and Balkans. Jen and her experienced University Value team are responsible for advising Universities and Course providers in this region about StudyPortals.

General introduction/background

Jen joined StudyPortals in June 2013, bringing six years of successful campaign planning and client management experience in the UK Higher Education Marketing sector with her. She is looking to develop, build and maintain a strong team which brings data-driven online strategy and sustainable international enrolment to Universities and course providers. She studied and received her BA Tourism and Recreation Management at Sheffield Hallam University and as part of this 4 year degree spent a year in the USA split between New Paltz New York and San Antonio Texas. Prior to joining the Higher Education Sector, she worked for British Airways and Thomas Cook, where her love of travel has taken her all over the world with her favorite places being Melbourne, Hong Kong and Eindhoven (Of Course).

Key challenge

Jen´s personal ambition is to let many of UK institutes test and experience the value of the platform as there is still much to gain in the UK and Ireland: `about 35% of students coming to the UK use StudyPortals along their journey at least once, however only a couple of % of UK universities promotion efforts go through the platform.´

What she likes about StudyPortals

`I have moved to StudyPortals as I am excited about the growth, international dimension and commitment the company has to high return on investment for Universities.´
`StudyPortals is all about the student, it has been designed by students for other students to give exactly the information they are searching for. It´s international, a fantastic search platform for the student when comparing courses in a variety of countries which no other website even comes close to.´

Favourite Listed Programme

I have two again…..
M.Sc.International Hospitality abd Tourism Management at University of Strathclyde, this course ticks my interest boxes following on from my degree and would open a variety of opportunities for students wanting to progress in the ever changing Tourism Industry. Plus the city of Glasgow is a great place to study, rich with Culture and an International vibe!
M.A. Shoes and Accessories Design (in Barcelona Campus) – this sounds like the ultimate fashion course for shoe lovers (myself included), its accredited by Istituto Europeo Di Design (IED) – in Italy and Spain.
