Sponsorship opportunities


ucisa’s Support Services Group look forward to welcoming you to their virtual conference this 30th June and 1st July, ‘Supporting the New Student Experience’, as they follow the student journey from open day to graduation in a new, changing environment as we look to the start of the next academic year.

Join us to follow "Sam" as they travel through university, from their first visit as a prospective student to the proud moment their degree is conferred. Hear how different support services are responding to digitally transformed ways of working, and how they contribute to giving "Sam" the perfect journey, helping them to achieve their goals.

Topics covered will include, but is not limited to, the changed recruitment experience, new registration process, student experience and the new graduation experience.

Delegates at the Conference will comprise of those responsible for the support of all aspects of IT within an HE institution, from IT Directors to managers responsible for 1st, 2nd and in some cases 3rd line support. Delegates attending are influencers within their institution; having responsibility for the IT support and provision of appropriate tools and processes for evaluating and deciding on the desktop, laptop, printing and audio-visual solutions. It is often at such events that ideas and concepts will be a key take away from the Conference resulting in follow up and future business.

As in previous years we hope to complement the programme with Partner Showcases – opportunities to share your experience and success in working together with institutions to deliver new value to their organisations.

If this is of interest, please see the options below:

Primary sponsorship package £3,000 + VAT
(inc 30 minute keynote presentation or interactive session, logo in event comms and webpage)

Business Showcase package £1,750 + VAT
(inc 20 min presentation or interactive session, logo in event comms and webpage)

NB We will require you to submit a ~200 word proposal for both the Primary keynote and Business Showcases packages (including details of your presenters) for consideration by the Conference Committee.

For the presentation proposals, wherever possible, demonstrate where you have partnered with a HE/FE institution, highlighting how you were able to meet the requirements, address challenges (e.g. peak loads during specific times of the year/activities) and demonstrate benefits realised.

The content should not be a sales pitch. Rather explain a general problem or challenge facing the sector, talk about what you have learned and finish with a few slides on how your solution can help. Presenting in partnership with an academic site as a case study with the Full member leading the presentation, is our preference.
