We are here to promote opportunities on behalf of universities and doctoral training partnerships. But what if you’re not fully set up on our system? What if you are worried that you have a short advertising window? Well, we think we have the solution for you: using our self service to list your PhDs.

Why use our self service to list your PhDs?

  • You’ll pay only £50 – no VAT, and your listing is valid for 12 months or until the end of your studentship or course.
  • You can tailor your copy within our easy-to-use template.
  • Minimal admin: Pay by bank card/ VCC instead of raising a Purchase Order.

Advertise with us, and you can reach:

  • Intending PhD students, a mix of UK and International. Their average time on site is 4 minutes, bounce rate 49% and we receive on average 76,610 monthly new users.
  • We consistently rank in the top ten keyword searches for PhDs.
  • Your advert will appear on our Postgraduate Studentships page and in our email bulletins.

How to use the self service:

  • Set up your account on our registration page. You’ll need to use your organisation email and not personal one, so we can authenticate your account.
  • Look out for an authentication email on the same working day. If you contact us over the weekend, we’ll set your account up on Monday.
  • You can now access your account, post an advert, view advert performance, or change your password.

What you will need to get started:

  • A header image
  • A link for the visitor to register interest. Ideally this will be a trackable UTM link, but a regular link will do if you cannot access your own site’s analytics.
  • Copy – include around 3 paragraphs with key information about your organisation, links to PhD courses or studentships offered and who these are aimed at
  • A link to the web page so viewers can find out more on your site.
  • Links to social networks (optional).
  • Details of who to send enquiries (optional).
  • a ‘call to action’ to encourage click throughs to your website landing page to find out more.

How to check your advert is performing:

  • Return to your login page where you will be taken to your account page.
  • Go to the ‘Content’ tab. Here you’ll see in blue text ‘view stats’ next to the title of your PhD opportunity.
  • You can select the dates of the period that the advert is live.

Next steps

  • Checking advert performance helps you make future decisions about whether to change the deadline or tailor the copy.
  • If your advert is not performing as you wish, you can contact us so we can suggest how to support you.
  • You can then decide whether to book an email, a boost or have animated banners on the site to support your PhD recruitment.
