Successful events in Hong Kong and China

4 July 2016



Following the success of other international alumni events Oxford Brookes hosted two events for prospective students and alumni in Hong Kong and China. These events are part of the University’s Internationalisation strategy organised in collaboration with Oxford Brookes International and External Relations team.

Both events were extremely successful and received praise from both alumni and students.

'We welcomed over 100 prospective students and alumni' said the International Project Officer, Martina Adamcikova

Caleb Yeung, an offer holder from Hong Kong, said:
'Me and my mother really enjoyed the drink reception because we could have the opportunity to share our feelings and concerns for the future study at Oxford Brookes with other students who are planning to study at the same place which has wonderful study experience. It was my pleasure to have a conversation with Mr. Inman, the Pro Vice-Chancellor, and receive a prize from the lucky draw!'

Paul Inman, Pro Vice Chancellor (International Student Recruitment), commented:
'It has been a real privilege hosting these events around the world, bringing together our alumni and prospective students. There is a lot of good feeling out there for Oxford Brookes and it's important that we harness this positive energy and amplify it through networking events and a dynamic social media marketing campaign.

We are a University that has always attracted international students. To continue being a successful recruiter, in a very competitive marketplace, we simply need to ensure that our messages are heard in targeted 'hot spot' regions in Asia, Africa, Europe and America.'

Lucy Bonnano, a prospective student in China, summarised her experience:

'The event in Beijing connected me with staff and past students that could tell me more about the great opportunities awaiting me at Oxford Brookes. I learnt more information on the many courses Brookes offers, and after talking to graduates, how successful you can be. It gave me a much better insight into what looks to be a great University.'
