Who should attend

This session should be of interest to you if you:

  • are responsible for recruiting postgraduate taught students
  • field enquiries from prospective postgraduate taught students
  • manage digital channels targeting prospective postgraduate taught students, including degree finder entries


The session is in development, so the timings may change but we intend to cover:

  • Introduction and context of the website transformation project (10 minutes)
  • Recap of what we learned from stakeholders, data, desktop research and concept testing in the design sprints we did in 2021 (10 minutes)
  • Insights from user research with prospective PGT students (60 minutes)
  • How we’re using this insight in the website transformation project (10 minutes)
  • Time for questions and discussion (20 minutes)

Background and context

This work is all part of the project our team is undertaking to transform the central provision for prospective students, including our degree finders. While last year we focused on the undergraduate prospective student experience, this year we have turned our attention to postgraduate students.

Blog posts on designing the future state of prospective student online provision

In December last year we shared an update on the taught postgraduate content-focused work and invited schools to collaborate on the design of the taught postgraduate programme page.
