Sharing the work of the Prospective Student Web Content Team

Neil is the Head of the Prospective Student Web Content Team.

January has seen a great deal of focus on working towards delivering the refresh of the Undergraduate Degree Finder, but we’ve also been collating and communicating user research to support upcoming work to improve the postgraduate fees experience.

We’ve been looking at conferences happening in the first half of 2020 following on from reviews of personal development plans. There are some great opportunities nearby and further afield that we want to take advantage of, and hope to see colleagues across the University joining us. Here are details of conferences that caught our eye…

I’ve decided to set myself the target of writing a monthly review. We may only be a little over three months into the set up of a new team and service but already things are moving so quickly.  So for me, it’s important to regularly take stock of what we’ve achieved and reflect on where […]

We’re running a series of events in December to introduce ourselves to the University’s web marketing and recruitment and admissions communities. Join us to find out about our early priorities and our vision for the future of student recruitment web publishing.

A commonly agreed set of principles is a powerful way to ensure that, while we may be working independently at times, we are likely to make decisions that keep us moving in the same direction. In this post, I’ll look at the principles that are setting out how […]

I want us as a community to think differently about website management. Instead of thinking of the website as an entity in itself to be managed, we need to think of it as collections of features that influence users to behave in particular ways.
