Efficiency in simplicity

Our aim was to create an effortless user experience that allowed users to quickly identify key information on university outreach programmes and loan calculations. Clear information hierarchy ensured the important details users wanted were a minimal number of clicks away, while crafted micro-interactions aided the refined user interface.

The look and feel of the website is all about simplicity and an effortless user experience. Minimising the number of clicks and displaying comprehensive content has helped users to quickly identify important information on university outreach programmes and loan calculations.
