The position of International Policy Adviser (Maternity Cover) – 02916
Closing date: 19 Oct 2016
Grade: Manager/Adviser

Study in Wales, the Welsh Government’s external facing portal, has agreed to run a #StudyinWales2017 campaign over the next three weeks. The aim is to help influence prospective international students, their parents and advisers to consider Wales as a study destination. The campaign will run from 10 – 28 October 2016 to tie in with the UCAS application window for 2017. Both ourselves are keen that universities and partners engage with this campaign. International Marketing and Communications teams have already been alerted. We would encourage all colleagues to get involved via social media over the next three weeks!
