April 2018 

This month, we’re helping support the conversion marketing campaign ‘UEA Soundtrack’. Each applicant yet to confirm their place has been sent a special set of UEA branded earphones from the Admissions Team, alongside a ‘soundtrack to your studies’ brochure featuring specially curated UEA Spotify playlists.

Ahead of the earphones dropping on our applicants’ doorsteps, we asked our social media followers to share the songs which represented their UEA experience for the ‘UEA Student Choice’ playlist.

Now, it’s our applicants’ turn to share their favourite songs this month via WhatsApp or on Twitter and Instagram (using the #UEASoundtrack hashtag) for the chance to win £150 of Amazon vouchers. 

Keep a look out as well for our Instagram story this week promoting the playlists (accessible through mobile). You may have also spotted applicants already enthusiastically posting a snap of their pair on social media.  

Did you think our April Fool was fur real? This month UEA also got into the April Fools spirit with a special Easter themed prank, claiming Banksy had struck the campus with a street mural dedicated to UEA’s lovable rabbits. Our followers joined in on the fun, with the posts collectively receiving over 1.5k engagements! 

March 2018

The news of Norwich being placed in The Sunday Times list of ‘Best Places to Live in the UK in 2018’ was also our best performing posts across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram this month. The posts collectively reached over 218.5k unique users and received over 7.9k likes, 1.2k shares and 900 comments.

What you say online has a massive impact on UEA’s global brand and reputation.

That’s why we’ve worked with Human Resources and the Communications Teams to put together code of conduct and policy documentation.

It’s vital you understand this before you use social media. It applies to all UEA students and staff (including those with honorary status) across both your official and personal accounts.
