UniSmart is very effective
– we know because our audience tells us it is!
The UniSmart New Students’ Survey has been conducted annually since 2005. The data tells us what is top of mind for new students when they first arrive at university. This information informs the ever-evolving content of the UniSmart presentation.
We ask questions about student social (and anti-social) habits, living situation, finances and future plans. Plus of course, we ask our audiences what they think about UniSmart.
Feedback influences the content of our presentation in a major way and enables us to reflect and respond by updating the content.
Rating the impact of UniSmart
Overwhelmingly, the survey feedback is positive (93% in 2017 rate it as ‘Awesome’ or ‘Good’) and supports the value of the presentation as part of a new student induction programme. Students talk of feeling welcomed, relieved, engaged and informed by UniSmart . Survey results reassure us of the value of the presentation in terms of induction – and ultimately retention. The collected data provides invaluable evidence for our clients.
Check out results from recent surveys and compare the performance of your current induction programme to UniSmart.
We value the relationships we have established with university personnel in the United Kingdom and throughout New Zealand and Australia. Working collaboratively to improve student outcomes is our combined goal. UniSmart has made a significant contribution to induction programmes at many leading universities.
We invite you to contact clients to discuss the benefits of UniSmart, the value of the investment, and the experience of working in partnership with us to deliver the presentation.

“UniSmart covers every aspect of student life, from settling in, managing your money and being street aware to sex and trickier things like shyness and homesickness. They can deal with some really important topics. It's a real buzz - the students love it."
David Dickinson | then Director of Student Care | University of Surrey
"I was deeply impressed by the performance delivered which managed to be very entertaining, plus effectively getting across hard to deliver, important messages. The vehicle was perfect for our bright, young, cosmopolitan undergraduates. The part that addressed alcohol misuse really hit home and after many years of trying to find effective vehicles to deliver messages about safe drinking this was by far the most effective I have experienced. Well done! This certainly met a priority for us. As I said, very impressive."
Rob Warren | Student Services | University of St Andrews
