To design and build a website that helps students to discover and navigate the enormous range of opportunities available at the University of Southampton. Once live, a selected board of students will have the ability to submit new opportunities as they arise.
The opportunities needed to be easily searched, discovered and digested. In order to find the best solution, we held student focus groups to collect information on popular search terms, device preferences and usage scenarios.
We created a ‘hero’ search bar that encourages students to select their chosen subject area and use the free search. Once the search results are presented, the student can filter their search by varying levels of criteria, such as Year of Study, Development Theme, Curricular, Place of Delivery, Timings or Skills.
