Event: User research playback event on scholarships and funding 18 August
Join us on Wednesday 18 August at 10am to watch prospective postgraduates try out a design we’ve prototyped to make it easier to find scholarships and funding available to them to study at Edinburgh.
The team are looking ahead to the replacement of our current undergraduate and postgraduate degree finders.
We are using a technique called design sprints to help us explore potential future states that better meet student needs and reflect the business priorities of the University.
About this session
This session summarises our sixth design sprint, looking at how prospective students might better find what scholarship and funding opportunities are on offer to them at the University.
We have designed a prototype concept that will help us to gauge how useful students find a new funding search facility and presentation of funding information.
Join us to see how prospective postgraduates react to our design, and contribute to our summarisation and prioritisation of positive and negative aspects.
This is a great way to get involved in the future shape of our most important online provision for prospective students.
Who is this event for?
If you are involved in student recruitment, admissions, communications and/or marketing in a central service or in a school or college, then this will be of interest.
As well as hearing about what we’ve learned, we want your input too. So, if you have experience of working with prospective students, we hope you can join us.
What we’ll do
In this session we will:
- provide some background about the work we’ve been doing in this sprint
- watch short videos of students completing representative tasks using the prototype
- work together to summarise and prioritise what we’ve learned
When and where
