Promoting the Alternative Guide Online: Quick Guide for Subscribers
Once your university has subscribed to the Alternative Guide Online, all you need to do to promote it is to link to our Gateway URL: www.postgraduate-funding.com/gateway .It's really as simple as that! Link from your postgraduate funding pages, graduate school, careers, research office, and any other places you can think of! The more the better!
Having some text next to the link, and a picture, also helps hugely in capturing a student's attendtion, and giving them a short primer on what the Guide actually is! We've got some handy template text below. This text doesn't have to be followed verbatim, but we have found that it is effective! We've also got lots of images for you to use to attract students' attention if you wish.
You can read a more detailed booklet on how to set up the Guide here, but this page you are on right now contains everything you need!
