Cardiff University - app for students

Overview

We designed an app for the University of Cardiff that would help university students in their day to day life around campus. Through high-quality UX design, we created a platform that is both customisable and adaptable to each individual student.

Aim

The aim of the project was to create an app for both new and current students to use everyday around the university campus. Intended as a go-to platform for all students, they would be able find out everything they needed to know about life at university, including course information and timetables.

Process

Before we started our initial designs, we had a look at the current student intranet to find needs and features of current users. This enabled us to determine what would create high student engagement within the new mobile application.  Utilising our UX specialists, the app was designed with ‘the new student’ in mind, centred around what resources they would require from a university app. With the purpose for each individual student at the forefront of our strategy, we created a design that could be customisable and adaptable to each individual student.

Result

The current trends promote customisation with the design and development of new apps. This is because companies now understand that each person is different and has individual needs. This was something that took priority in the design stage of the Cardiff University app, in order to maximise application usage.
