Background and context

In September 2023, we launched a beta showing what undergraduate degree profiles will look like when the new system goes live.

We published three preview pages for these undergraduate degrees:

  • Chemistry BSc (Hons)
  • French and English Literature MA (Hons)
  • Veterinary Medicine BVM&S

Launching a beta enabled us to

  • leave people to interact with the pages organically
  • run analytics on the pages for a reasonably long period of time to learn from a much larger group
  • enable users to rate and comment on their experience and opinion of the new design
  • undertake more natural usability testing sessions with live content fully integrated into the website.
