QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) provide student marketing and recruitment solutions for higher education institutions across the world producing thought leadership on key issues in the education sector. Lodestone’s strategy is to engage universities, generate debate and raise the profile of QS as a thought leader. Using a collaborative approach, Lodestone works with QS to create more cut-through with key sectoral stakeholders. Leveraging our extensive network of media contacts, we help to regularly secure coverage in key publications including the BBC, the Financial Times and the Times. QS’ research also receives significant interest from politicians. In the previous two iterations of the International Student Survey, former Education Secretary Nicky Morgan and Former Universities Minister Jo Johnson have written the forewords for the report, further bolstering the profile of the organisation.
