Advertiser case study: The University of the West of England placed a banner advert on E-International Relations between October 2014-September 2015 as part of a wide ranging package of measures to promote the 2015/16 recruitment window for their undergraduate degree in Politics and International Relations. The result: In 2015/16 they recruited 20% more students than in the 2 years prior, thanks in part to the publicity generated by their advert on E-IR.
