Boosting Southern Cross University enrolment rates 
by 11% with a targeted 
calling campaign

Southern Cross University (SCU) faced a challenge during a peak enrolment period: needing to increase the acceptance rates of offers to prospective students, but being stretched thin on resources for outreach.

Our mission? To assist SCU by stepping in with a targeted calling campaign designed to fill the gap and significantly boost their enrolment numbers.

We employed a hands-on approach for this initiative to ensure every prospective student received the attention needed to make an informed decision about 
their future.

Scaling student engagement

SCU had the structure in place for offers, but were struggling to connect and communicate with prospective students in a timely manner.

The university needed a partner who could not only reach out to these individuals but also persuade them to proceed with enrolment. This challenge required a blend of strategic communication, thorough knowledge of SCU’s processes, and a highly personalised engagement strategy.
