North worked in partnership with Laureate to bring to life an exciting new vision for Torrens Universities current and future students in only 6 weeks
Torrens University Australia is part of Laureate International Universities, a leading international network of quality, innovative institutions of higher education comprised of nearly 70 universities across 23 countries.
Laureate Education, Inc. is the largest international network of degree-granting higher education institutions, with more than 850,000 students enrolled at over 25 institutions with more than 150 campuses, which is collectively refered to as the Laureate International Universities network.
Future State Vision
The Vision project started with a discovery phase where the foundation of the solution was defined and requirements and scope were confirmed. During discovery, North conducted a series of workshops with Laureate to investigate and understand the full scope of activities, the context of the websites within the wider Laureate ecosystem, the number of required templates and components, and the recommended architectural solution.
Discovery was broken into phases, starting with a solution design discovery in order to confirm as many initial requirements as possible. Once the UX requirements had been confirmed we designed the information architecture, user personas, and the new creative vision.
Torrens is a University that has recently acquired a number of leading independent colleges known internally as the ‘power brands’ – These consist of Chifley Business School, Billy Blue School of Design, and William Blue College of Hospitality Management. North worked closely with the Brand Agency ‘Someone’ to not only elegantly translate their offline brand work into digital channels but also support in aligning these power brands and delivering a singular Torrens-led digital experience focussed on increased enrolments and conversion.
