What do we do? 

Our International Development service comprises four main teams: International Admissions, Recruitment, Business Operations (including marketing) and International Student Advice.

Our International Admissions Officers provide support, guidance and expertise to students wishing to study abroad, here at ARU. During the application process they provide a link between applicant and Faculty, providing information on qualifications and entry requirements. They check applications, make and confirm offers as well as send information to our new students. For most courses Admissions Officers have delegated responsibility to make decisions based on entry criteria provided by Faculty academic staff.

Our International Recruitment team is split by geographical regions based on their language skills and expertise. They develop complex marketing plans for their regions to include not only new student recruitment, but also signing new partnerships and agents. A large part of their work includes agent network management and their performance analysis.

Our Business Operations team supports the office with dealing with procession invoices, freight, agent commission payments and various data requests. We've a dedicated Marketing Officer, who supports the Recruitment team and makes sure that not only our officers, but our wide agent network is keeping up with our key messages, brand and tone of voice. Marketing Officer supports our recruitment teams with digital marketing campaigns, drives offer holder conversion, looks after our call centre and CRM and student record system development.

Our International Student Support team looks after our international students while they are on our campuses. Our International support services team are recognised as amongst the best (International Student Barometer 2013). This support starts even before students arrive, with advice on journey planning, our popular International Orientation for new students and continuing with comprehensive advice on any aspect of their course or living in the UK.
