A common strategy used by marketers to make sales is the word of mouth. The education sector also relies strongly on this strategy to cement their establishments. Students are very vocal and will always communicate their thoughts, feelings and general experiences about an institution. What they communicate can either lead to an increase or drop in enrollment rates of educational institutions.
We have used the case of Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) to highlight tips on gaining positive student experience. MMU won the Student Experience Award at the Guardian Higher Education Awards. This is a big deal as it says a lot about their services. EQAL (Enhancing the Quality of Assessment for Learning), a curriculum transformation project funded by Jisc is what made them get the trophy. We analyzed this work and came up with the following top pointers that any educational institution should follow to help …

Car insurance for college students tends to walk hand in hand with high insurance premiums. The reason for this is because insurance companies charge the highest premiums for the drivers that they believe are most likely to put in claims. The more claims any one driver places, the more money the insurance company must pay out. This is not something that the company enjoys doing so they charge higher premiums to anyone who falls into the anticipated group.
Statistically speaking, young drivers comprise the largest group of those making claims. The reasons for this are because they are less experienced on the road and tend to have more motor vehicle accidents.
