Sharing the work of the Prospective Student Web Content Team

Tag: degree finder

We are shortly doing our first update to the degree finders as part of our future degree finder project. Over the course of the summer, a couple of changes are happening to the undergraduate and postgraduate degree finders to make our transition to EdWeb 2 and the new degree finders as smooth as possible.

On 30 April 2024, we hosted an event to showcase the insights we gained from releasing a beta of the new undergraduate programme pages. This post gives a summary of the event, with access to the event slides and recording.

We’re running an online event on Tuesday 30 April to showcase the insights we gathered from running the undergraduate beta – a preview of what undergraduate degree profiles will look like when the new system goes live.

School editors of undergraduate degree profiles will be encountering our new content model soon, as we prepare for entry 2026 content development. We have new training and guidance, and a longer lead in to give everyone enough time to prepare.

As part of the future degree finder project, we recently ran a series of collaboration workshops with colleagues from across the University. These workshops helped us identify any potential issues and refine our prototype for the future postgraduate taught programme page.

Last year we revisited our search prototype for the new degree finders. We wanted to review it in light of project work we had carried out in the meantime. In this blog post I share what we did to update the prototype.

We’re running an online event on Monday 25 March to share our latest work on developing the new postgraduate research programme page. Come along to see our work-in-progress prototype and give feedback on our work.

We’re running an open invite event on Microsoft Teams on Tuesday 12 March to share our latest insight from user research as part of the project developing the new postgraduate taught (on-campus and online) programme page.

I joined the Prospective Student Web Content Team in September 2023, and immediately headed out on campus with everyone to conduct usability testing with new students. It was a great way to immerse myself in the Team’s user-centred approach and learn about a technique that should be part of every content designer’s skill set.

Over the summer we undertook user research with prospective research students to better understand their experiences and help inform the design of our future web presence. We presented findings last week to the student recruitment and marketing community, and the slides and video are now available to staff.
