Universities Scotland

A responsive website designed to help students from around the world explore all that Scotland's university sector has to offer.


Responsive Website

With more world-class universities per head of population than anywhere else in the world, Scotland's university sector offers unparalleled quality and choice for those looking to study. When Universities Scotland approached Screenmedia to help them design and develop a new website aimed at promoting Scotland and its universities to international students, we were delighted to be involved.

Working alongside Universities Scotland and representatives from each of the 19 higher education institutions, our brief was to create a dynamic website that promoted the quality of education in Scotland and demonstrated the warm and thriving culture that often draws students to study here.

Screenmedia began by developing the UX and GUI of the site to appeal to domestic and international markets. Taking inspiration from the Scottish Saltire, the resulting site design was simple, clean, modern and fresh.

Built on Umbraco CMS, the cascading grid layouts for this site are perfectly suited to a responsive design and can incorporate a wide range of feeds from each of the university websites, including social networking sites, blogs, events, and news. This keeps the site content fresh without lumbering Universities Scotland with the task of constant site updates. Since the launch of the site, the feedback from each of the institutions has been overwhelmingly positive and we are excited to see the growth of this site year-on-year.
