Sharing the work of the Prospective Student Web Content Team

Tag: content design

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.

When you launch a new website, you can’t help but feel a sense of protective affection for it, and an anxious wish that it will do well in the world. Here’s how we measured the new Tuition Fees site for search optimisation – and what we found.

It’s done! Our team has delivered a new website for the Fees Service which will greatly improve student fees experience and make life easier for staff. The effort took 8 sprints, was underpinned by robust evidence, and designed with significant collaboration from the Fees and Student Support team.

We’re looking for a user-centred content designer to join our team. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 23 March.

After 5 months of hard work and collaboration across the University, we launched the new undergraduate study website for 2021 on 24 February 2020.

During the early part of December, we ran a series of events to engage with the student recruitment and website management communities. In this post I’ve pulled together slides, video and a write up of what I said.
