  • Lorraine Jones,

    Associate Director of Marketing and Student Recruitment

    “We love our virtual experience, it looks great and we think it’s sector leading. We were blown away when we ran our first virtual open day event on the platform in June 2020 – we had over 6,000 unique visitors in that one day and the average session duration was over 11 minutes. We are really pleased and can’t wait to see the impact on our enrolment stats!”

  • Emma Bridge,

    Associate Director, Marketing Communications

    “We are really happy with our virtual experience which we are using as the lead solution in our student recruitment strategy. We really liked working with Revolution Viewing on this project, it felt like we were working together as an extended team on both sides.”

  • Tasha Winsor,

    Senior Recruitment Events Officer

    “The stats we’ve received from our first open day are strong: users spent an average of 19 minutes visiting an average of 19 pages across the tour. Not having had any experience in virtual open days previous, this initially felt like a big investment. On reflection, we spent a similar amount on this as we would on a physical open day, but we have the luxury of using this again and again.”
