Another week, another uni...
Last week, we gleefully announced that Paperclip will be powering the official marketplace for Brunel students. This time, the team are heading just five minutes from Paperclip HQ to Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Cardiff Metropolitan is one of the country's fastest growing unis and houses the famous Cardiff School of Art & Design. The university has over 13,000 students studying across their campuses in Llandaff and Cyncoed.
Paperclip CMO Laurence comments "We are delighted to have Cardiff Metropolitan University on board. The university has a great reputation at home and abroad and we are excited to be launching the marketplace alongside The Union. As an (adopted) Cardiffian, it's great to be working with a student community so close to home. Here our knowledge of the area will prove invaluable as we aim to reach out to students through local events, partnerships with popular local brands and engaging with students face-to-face."
The Cardiff Met marketplace has been prepped and will be launched this month, in time for the new 2018/19 cohort.
We managed to speak with David Jackson Commercial Development Manager at Cardiff Met Students' Union who added "For most students, going to university is their first time leaving home which means they need all the university essentials. With a degree costing so much, they need to find ways to keep their living costs down. This is where the marketplace comes in."
Not only this, but Paperclip will be planning to trial some fab new features and offers for students on this platform - details to follow...
Our new Marketing Officer Justin, who will be spearheading the student onboarding process at this uni, said "It's great to be working with Cardiff Met Student Union. With our ability to dedicate more time to student engagement, we can gather valuable feedback through focus groups which will allow us to further grow our platform."
