One study guide with all the information you need!

University of Utrecht

For the University of Utrecht we created the digital solution 'the Study Guide Life Sciences'. From a 180-page PDF to a user-friendly platform where students can find all the information they need online.

One platform for all information

Utrecht University (UU) together with the University Medical Centre Utrecht (UMC) wanted a digital version of the Study Guide Life Sciences that would make it easier for students to access information about the programs. In this way one would decrease the amount of questions at the administration.

Webbased app

A "digital version" may vary from a website to a mobile app. We have chosen to design a web-based studyguide, so that students have access on both laptop, tablet and mobile. By means of smart scaling (responsive behavior) the information provided is adjusted to the image carrier. The studyguide can also be saved as a web app on the home screen of smartphones.

Corporate identity UU and UMC united

We have merged the identity of the UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University into the design of the app. The style is put down by in-house designers of the UMC Utrecht, which we have further developed and designed to optimize it for implementation in the digital study guide.

The Drupal CMS as a basis

We have developed the Study Guide for the UMCU with Drupal, one of the most popular CMSs in the world. We did that for a reason: Drupal excels in flexibility and user-friendliness. During the launch, the first users were immediately able to navigate through the site without further explanation. So it seems that we have succeeded in realizing a user-friendly and intuitive feeling solution!
