Numiko has commenced a contract with The University of London to move the University towards a unified digital estate during 2017.
The University of London is the second largest University in the UK with more than 170,000 students at its 18 colleges and institutes and 50,000 students studying in its international programmes.
Numiko’s task is a complete end-to-end redesign and development project which will bring together the constituent parts of the University into a single unified web presence based on the needs of current and future students as well as alumni, staff and others.
The project will see the central University of London website merge with the Internal Programmes on a new mobile responsive and flexible Drupal 8 platform and will engage end users across the range of the University’s audiences as well as all university staff.
According to Marie Kitney, Numiko’s Head of Client Services, the University of London’s web presence will be completely revamped over the next few months to harness the strength of the University brand, the member institutions in London and teaching institutions across the world.
The Head of Digital at the University of London, Melanie Read believes that the project is central to the execution of the university’s digital strategy and will provide the technical foundations and editorial flexibility needed to face the challenges and harness the opportunities of the future.
