Who are we?

We’re postgraduate specialists: Postgraduate is what we do, all day, every day – and it is all we do – there is no undergraduate or job information on our sites.

We deliver great value results for your postgraduate campaigns:

    • a purely intending PG student audience
    • high ROI and low bounce rates so you know the quality of the traffic we send you is good
    • many of our products are linked both to each other and across both of our websites so they get maximum exposure for your investment
    • flexible products allowing for the promotion of single taught courses/PhD studentship projects, promotion of PGT or PGR programmes by subject area or School through to corporate PG campaigns
  • we’ll always prepare bespoke proposals tailored to the needs, budget and objectives of each institution, faculty, school or department
  • instant access to your campaign stats results from your account page available 24/7 or we can insert tracking links you provide us with
  • our integrity – we will only recommend products we know will work best for the campaign, whether it makes us the most money or not
  • a dedicated Account Manager will create and monitor your campaign; you will always have someone to reach to talk about your campaign
