University of London Appoints Numiko

Numiko is delighted to announce a new partnership with the University of London, which marks the next phase in the University’s ambition to move towards unified digital estate.

With over 170,000 students studying at its 18 colleges and institutes, as well as 50,000 students studying its international programmes, the University of London is the second largest University in the UK. This project aims to 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.

Numiko has been tasked with a complete end-to-end redesign and development project which will see the central University of London website merge with the Internal Programmes on a new, mobile responsive and flexible Drupal 8 platform. The project will engage end users across the spectrum of the University’s audiences as well as staff across the University.

Marie Kitney, Head of Client Services at Numiko said:

“Over the next few months we will completely revamp the University of London’s web presence to harness the strength of the University brand, the member institutions in London and teaching institutions across the world. The project may sound complex but the user experience won’t be; it’ll be a stunning example of what we can achieve when we all work together. Numiko has enjoyed working with Higher Education Institutions over a number of years now and our website redesign project for Goldsmiths, itself a part of the University of London, was last year named ‘Best Website’ at the prestigious Heist awards. We thrive on complex information architecture challenges, creative excellence and technical robustness, and I think that with the committed teams here at the University we can achieve something truly world-class.”

Melanie Read, Head of Digital at the University said:

“We were impressed by Numiko’s portfolio, enthusiasm for the project and commitment to user-centred design. This project is central to the execution of our digital strategy and will provide us with the technical foundations and editorial flexibility we need to face the challenges and harness the opportunities of the future.”

We expect the new website to launch before the end of 2017.
