We’re always looking for new and interesting ways in which to talk to you all so that’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of our brand new Concept Cupboard Google+ and Pinterest channels!

Whilst we already talk to you all through Twitter and Facebook we thought that we’d be able to get to know you even better with these social networks.

We’ll be following this post up with our insights into using each platform a litte further down the line but for now here’s what we’ll be hoping to share with you on each platform… Read more…

The University Face Off is on!

Using Facebook, this innovative new student competition has students across the country battling it out to determine the “most supported” university in the UK. There are loads of prizes up for grabs with further prizes, like a trip to Amsterdam, unlocked when the Facebook page reaches certain targets. When we last looked they already had well over 8,000 likes.

With students wanting to show support for their University and also get their hands on some great prizes we think this is a great idea and hope to see the battle for top spot go to the wire. If you haven’t already show support for university by visiting facebook.com/universityfaceoff.

The idea came from the clever chaps behind savethestudent.org, who have effectively created a new way of ranking universities. Lead developer Jamie Akthar says:

“Status and size no longer matter; this project is all about the community. Students often say that university is as much about the social aspect as academic achievements. So let’s provide a new way of ranking universities in a completely social way.”

If you haven’t visited savethestudent already then take a look. Some great offers and awesome advice.
