About Us

Not Going To Uni was founded in 2008 to showcase the alternatives to the standard university route to school and college leavers. Since then it has become one of the best known and recognised brands in the market, regularly asked to comment on issues in the market by many media outlets including the BBC and Sky. Our longevity in the market allied with the content on our website means we are highly visible on search engines and results in a huge volume of organic traffic to the site.


We generate millions of page impressions each year from visitors to the site, which in turn leads to thousands of applications for our customers. We work with a huge variety of customers: blue chip corporates, training providers, FE colleges, gap year companies and SMEs, helping them with their attraction campaigns. We also keep schools up to date with opportunities with regular email communications to our database of careers advisers.



For us providing good results and service for our customers is of paramount importance. Approximately 75% of our business comes from repeat customers which tells us we are achieving this. In addition to putting our client’s opportunities in front of thousands of potential applicants, all our customers are allocated their own campaign manager too ensure their campaign runs smoothly, advise on the best way to generate results and provide campaign statistics. We are consistently investing in the website to improve the experience for applicant and client alike and look forward to helping people find great opportunities for many years to come.
