Must Have Promotional Products for University Open Days

Exams are finally coming to a much welcomed end across the country, and after a year of practicing integration and differentiation or revising all there is to know about Henry VIII, students are looking to the next step.

It’s open day season in the coming weeks, with more scattered around throughout the autumn, so making your university or college stand out amongst the rest is vital. With well thought out promotional products, you can be sure you’ll make an impression on prospective students.

What do students care about when looking at further education? Well, above all, the course itself: the curriculum, the quality of teaching, and the type of training. But students also care about location, like what city the university’s in and where the campus is, or what the nightlife is like. Accommodation is also a factor – do they get an en suite or do they have to share a bathroom with five other people? Finally, how welcoming the university is and the support they can get from staff can make or break a decision. Promotional products can help show off all your university’s best features, so you can tick all these important boxes.

Show students why your university is the place to be

USBs are a must have promotional product for students, as not only are they useful for backing up important pieces of work, but you upload files that promote your university or course. Make a video with a rundown on what your university has to offer including student testimonials, pdfs with details about courses, or photos showcasing the campus. Plus, by adding your logo and details to your USBs, it can prompt a conversation with other students when they see your branding.


Using the full colour print of a coaster or mug gives you a great opportunity to hit prospective students’ desires for an amazing location. Get photos of your town’s iconic landmarks, nearby nature and landscapes, or the university’s campus and brand with your logo. Every time they go for their much needed cup of tea, they’ll be reminded of their potential future home.

Welcome packages are the perfect way to give students support when they’ve shown interest or even applied to your establishment. Teabags and chocolates are necessary treats to get them through another year of exams, which can all be branded. You can also include promotional notebooks for revision. Plus, it’s essential to include leaflets and flyers listing course details, university contacts, town maps, upcoming taster days and more! Package all this in a sturdy promotional tote bag for more exposure.

With useful and relevant promotional products, it’s easy to get your university into the spotlight and show it as the place to be and study! Hit all the check boxes by showcasing what makes your university special, whether it’s the incredible nightlife or the world class research facilities.
