A COLLEGE is using a specially-designed app to keep potential students in the loop.

Blackburn’s St Mary’s College is hoping to use the new app on a day-to-day basis to keep students, and potential students, up to date.

The tool enables the college’s different social media pages to be accessible from one central source, and is an information point for those who have applied to St Mary’s. 

Elissa Best, who oversees social media, said: “Using the app you can view our newsfeed, access our college calendar, and request our prospectus, plus we can send direct messages via the app when needed to remind potential students of events, and deadlines”.
