How does it work?
Get in touch with us
You get in touch with us and we’ll talk through how the Uni Life Hacks video series can work at your university.
In this conversation we will ask you which topics are most important to you. This may be an emerging issue or concern about behaviour on campus, or a particular student service that you would like to increase engagement with.
Based on our conversation with you, we will create a proposal for your video series. The proposal will include the topics that the videos will cover and a short summary of what will be included.
We create your videos
Once we have agreed the focus of the videos, and the topics that will be covered, we begin gathering the information that we need to create your bespoke videos.
We will ask you for information about your Student Support Services and other relevant services.
We may also survey your third year students or student ambassadors to gain quotes about how they made the most out of their time at university. These quotes and testimonials will then be included in your videos.
Students like hearing directly from other students who are also at their university, integrating their words into the video series makes the videos very relatable for your students.
Once we’ve gathered the information, we then create your videos. The information about your university student services is included in each episode.
On screen links and calls to action are included, encouraging students to engage with your student services immediately after watching each video.
Your videos are shared within your student community
It’s time to launch! We deliver your videos to you. These can then be promoted and shared with the students at your university.
We provide you with promotional summaries and images for the videos. This helps to grab your students’ attention and increase engagement with the videos.

What People Say
‘OpenView Education are true to their mission – students at Middlesex University who attended the sessions bore testimony to OpenView’s claim – they truly do “equip students with the self-confidence and knowledge they need to stay safe and to live successful, happy lives.”
The Uni Life Hacks workshops were bespoke-built specifically to support students newly arriving to Middlesex University who chose to attend an aspirational taster day ahead of induction. This day was called “Getting Ahead” and was geared towards preparing students for the unique opportunities and challenges of studying at University.
Working with OpenView has been fun, productive and impactful. They listened carefully to the wishes and needs of the brief, checking back to be sure they have understood the context in which the workshops were to be delivered. They are highly professional in approach, and have great understanding of how best to engage students in exploratory and learning activities.’
