Job description

Coventry University is recognised as one of the leading UK study destinations for international students.  We've put ourselves on the global map by recruiting students from 87% of the world in just 10 years through our International Office. Continuing success means that we must invest in our senior leadership team to grow recruitment, and to maintain an admissions process that's the envy of the Higher Education sector.  

So we need a results-driven Head of International Admissions who will:-

  • Show a successful track record of developing strategies, and implementing business processes, that manage large volumes of student applications from countries worldwide, across multiple campuses, and for several intakes at the same time.
  • Develop a diverse team of Admissions professionals in the UK and in different time zones, meeting challenging SLAs and KPIs that focus on customer service, quality compliance and enrolment targets.
  • Work alongside colleagues from the whole University to promote and optimise an admissions agenda that enrols students from almost every single country in the world.
  • Use solid expertise to understand external visa regulations, internal admissions processes and different academic standards from countries across the world to make the admissions process robust, objectively fair and transparent to stakeholders.

 The International Office takes responsibility for recruiting students to study for a Coventry University degree. We take pride in understanding the needs of different students from different cultures across the world. We encourage undergraduate and postgraduate students to apply directly to us, or through our global network of sales agents.

We show a young and vibrant worldwide audience how a degree from Coventry will change their lives. Because of this, we're recognised as 2nd in the UK for Teaching Excellence. And 97% of our students are employed, or in further study, six months after they graduate from us.

As results-driven organisation marketing courses to global customers, we adopt working patterns that help us 'make the sale'. This includes flexibility at peak times of the year, and the ability to travel overseas if needed. Show us how you'll hit the ground running from day one by applying at the link below.
