Understanding how users interact with websites is a speciality of the team at J&L, and East Surrey College needed to reach many people as effectively as they can. This meant they would need a modern, vibrant and dynamic website with a priority on ease of access. Clear and concise information combined with a highly accessible format means that students will find it simple to navigate the many course guides available, while also being able to attain the best possible understanding of what the college can offer them. Ultimately this leads to students being able to confidently apply through the website and East Surrey College knowing that they have been well represented.
We built a bespoke website with a strong emphasis on form and function by combining cutting edge design practises with our decades of technical experience. This website was tailor built using our in-depth understanding of the user experience. The search feature is a key point of interface for a prospective student, so we made it as flexible as possible. Students can search for courses by; type, category, location and duration while simultaneously displaying pricing, coupled with an intuitive option to download any course information the visitor might want. Naturally we wanted to make our website convenient for East Surrey College too, so we included a data integration feature into the application forms. This means everything submitted by the potential student is automatically run through the colleges CRM (customer relationship management) systems, allowing the relationship between the college and student to begin immediately.
