The Student Room ​ has today announced that it has partnered with ​HELOA ​ - the professional association of staff in higher education, working in student recruitment, outreach, marketing  and admissions - to expand and develop the existing ​quality advice and guidance offered to  prospective higher education students and their families,​ in schools and colleges across the  UK.   

The Student Room, with a passionate ‘student first’ methodology, prides itself on delivering  peer-to-peer support, and bias-free expert advice to up to 10 million monthly users. These  values align closely with HELOA’s, who together with ​The Student Room, will uphold and  strengthen the existing support around Uni choice. The partnership will ensure that students  have access to expert content and supportive advice, presented to them at crucial stages of  their student journey.     

Pete Barnes, Managing Director of​ The Student Room ​said:

“Supporting the journey into  Higher Education is at the heart of what ​The Student Room ​ does. Support comes in many  forms; from peer-to-peer discussions, professional content, tools such as The Uni Guide  (formerly Which?University) and Get Revising, there are lots of ways to access the right help  for you.   

It’s fantastic to partner with HELOA and to be able to provide the support students need when  they need it most, empowering students into making tough decisions and helping them to  achieve their goals.”   

HELOA is committed to helping students make informed decisions about their higher  education choices and will work with ​The Student Room ​ to provide high-quality Information,  Advice and Guidance.    

Jonathan Atkinson, UK Chair of ​HELOA​ said:

“As the Higher Education sector proceeds  through a period of significant change and challenge ​HELOA ​ continues to provide the best  platform to collaborate and share best practice between our 1600 members who work with  students across the UK. We are delighted to strengthen our members' access to the knowledge and information offered by ​The Student Room ​. This new partnership will increase  our members’ ability to support prospective students who are considering their higher  education options, and help them prepare for the transition into life at university. ”   

The partnership comes at a particularly exciting time for ​The Student Room, who last month launched ​The Uni Guide​ - after acquiring the course and university search tools and much of  the independent expert advice developed by Which?University.
