Student recruitment staff at the University of Gloucestershire are in with a chance of winning a top higher education award.
The team from the University of Gloucestershire have been short-listed for the Outstanding Student Recruitment Team in the 2010 Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards.
The category rewards outstanding work in student admissions in the academic year 2008-09 and is open to all higher education institutions in the UK.
Applications to the University have soared, placing it in the top ten in the 2009 Times Higher table for the growth.  In the last academic year, the University received record numbers of applications, from over 10,000 students for the available 2,360 full-time places.  During the annual clearing process in August 2009, any remaining places were snapped up by lunchtime on the first day.
Student recruitment officer Ellen Lee said, “We’re all thrilled to be nominated and are looking forward to seeing how we do in June.”
Paul Drake, executive director of external relations said:
“This is a fantastic achievement by a focused and committed team of colleagues who have led University efforts to increases and then convert student applications.”

The University team will face teams from five other UK universities and will find out if they have won the award at a glittering award ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 17 June.
