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.

If you’re a contributor to the current online degree finders, or just interested in the prospective student experience, book a place.

The team has just completed our audit of a selection of school sites. We’ve uncovered some interesting themes and trends that will help inform the build of a new system to replace the degree finder and better meet the needs of student recruitment colleagues in schools.
