Subject Spotlights are an interactive, cinematic course taster experience, which enables institutions to harness the power of their academics to attract, engage and inform prospective students about their course-offerings.
We partner with remarkable academics from ground-breaking institutions to give prospective students the opportunity to experience degree courses before they apply.
Our community of over 360,000 secondary school and sixth form students have joined Springpod to explore the world of work and university.
We see, on average, 25K new users every month and we are the destination in the UK for young people to sample a university course before they apply.
Amplify subject-level recruitment by generating qualified leads for your university.
Subject Spotlights are the perfect tool in generating qualified leads to support your student recruitment goals. When students engage with your spotlight, we can trigger forms to ask them if they would be interested in studying at your university.
This data is made securely accessible for your team, or we can integrate directly with your CRM*.

We take care of everything, from liaising with your academics and faculty marketers through to producing, editing and promoting your spotlight.
All you have to do is select a course and enlist a suitable academic.
Work with our team to select a subject which will best position your university. If you have high-priority subject areas we can guide you in which course to select to ensure it hits your student recruitment goals.
Once you have selected your course of choice, it’s now time to find an engaging academic to deliver the Subject Spotlight content. We take care of all the content planning and guide the academics through the process when creating a Subject Spotlight.
On the day of filming in our studios (either Liverpool or London*) your academic will be greeted by our Production Assistant and Content Producer who will work with the academic to ensure they are fully prepared to film the Spotlight. Our crew will offer guidance throughout the filming day and will be directing the content to ensure we get the best outcome. We do offer on-campus filming at a premium cost.
*London Studio Coming Soon
After we have finished filming your Spotlight, our post-production team will get to work editing the episodic content and crafting your trailer.
We add stock footage, motion graphics and SFX to ensure every Spotlight is engaging for prospective students. Why all the effort? We believe the finer details and high-production value enable students to learn better and engage more with our content.
Shortly before your Spotlight goes live, your Uni Showcase Profile and Subject Spotlight will be added to our university experience with a ‘Coming Soon’ status. Once the Spotlight is approved, we will promote it to our students, parents, teachers and the wider world. We provide detailed reporting to help you measure the success of your Spotlight.

I really enjoyed working with the Springpod team. It was a new and very exciting experience for me. It was really great to have Paul’s expert input in planning the structure and delivery of the content, and I definitely felt we had the freedom to express our content
As a fashion designer I have been on a lot of shoots and understand how overwhelming and exhausting they can get, but filming with Springpod was extremely smooth and easy. I would definitely recommend this to other academics because it’s a great way to share your academic knowledge and passion, promote your courses and be part of an amazing filming experience.
It was a lovely experience working with Springpod. The planning stage was fun and informal, with a creative atmosphere for sharing ideas. I felt like the whole team were genuinely interested in us, our subject and what we do on a personal level.
The day of the shoot was great. The whole Springpod team were very patient and professional. I would recommend the experience to other academics as a fantastic way to share knowledge about their subject.
The whole process of working with Paul and the team at Springpod was a pleasure - from the initial online meeting and through idealisation they were all very supportive and inspiring.
On the day of filming I was impressed how professional everyone involved was, and seemed to take everything in their stride with ease. Springpod’s production values are extremely high and the filming day was a fantastic experience that will help future students make excellent and informed choices for their future regarding their degree courses.
