Sharing the work of the Prospective Student Web Content Team

Tag: content design

We’re recruiting 3 content designers to join us in improving the prospective student experience at the University of Edinburgh. Applications close Tuesday 14 September 2021.

We have two entry-level opportunities to join our team and start a career in content design. These positions would suit graduates or people with a couple of years’ relevant experience. Applications deadline: 24 August 2021.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are not a sensible way to structure web content. They might be easy to produce, but they’re difficult to consume and risky to manage. Here are five solid reasons to ditch your FAQ pages.

Content on what teaching will look like in September is limited by the difficulty of predicting what restrictions will be in place. But there’s evidence that saying what we can is already delivering value to students and the University.

The unpredictability of the Covid-19 pandemic makes it hard to predict what teaching will look like in September. But we can still try to provide content that’s useful for students and helps us prioritise improvements.

We’re using an iterative, human-centred design approach to promote UniBuddy in a way that’s responsive to the needs of prospective students.

I’ll be speaking at the UX Glasgow meetup on 2 December, which is themed around content design.

To have a successful digital service, we need to continuously close the loop between what our users need and what we’re actually publishing. Enquiry analysis can help us do that.

By breaking your content into short sentences, separating by subheadings and using bulleted lists, you can help users more easily understand your content.

We are currently looking for a content designer to join our team. If you’re up to tackling big challenges in a multidisciplinary team focused on user needs, this could be the opportunity for you. Applications close Monday 7 September 2020.
