NYU seems to be one of the only decent modern examples I can find...
Biased answer here (I designed this one last year) - http://arts.vcu.edu/ We really wanted to do something different than a traditional school website.
Earlier this year we launched the new Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University website committing more fully to bilingual content, which has provided its own challenges.
With the website being hosted in China, we encountered issues with the previous website reportedly being slow and frequently inaccessible to international visitors. I'd be interested to hear about your experiences with the new website.
There's still some work to do, but we feel we've got a better platform to build on.
Whoah, a lot of helpful answers here! I'd love to contribute some of my favorites:
- http://cis.edu.vn/ (this one is a little biased because I recently designed it and it's still in development)
Overall, I really like the modular and bold style in these educational sites!
This one, was featured on Abduzeedo like a year ago. http://www.hult.edu/
My university's website, although a little cluttered, is pretty good: http://www.ecuad.ca/
We redesigned and built the Selby College site in 2015, it's due another overhaul as part of a longer term project next year but always been pleased with the feedback it's had from students looking to study there.
So many educational sites look the same, Sheffield College is a nice one I saw recently that's a little different and bold.
My fiancé is the Content Strategist for Deakin University. Without any bias, I honestly think it's a great site.
Won my heart with the header transition when you scroll down. Some of the visuals I don't like but purely because of preference, overall it's a really quality site, just hope that search bar is useful for finding information.
Another very good one http://www.gold.ac.uk/
Perfect timing. Thanks :)
One of the best uni websites at the moment — http://www.strelka.com/en
I am more than happy to post the website of the university from where I graduated in 2015 and where I taught in the 2016. I designed and co-developed the website and the whole project was content-first, pattern-driven, and designed in the open.
I really didn't like the double-tier'd dropdowns under study programs, but once I saw how it was actually being used I didn't hate it anymore.
It's a nice looking website for sure, refreshing to see in an educational field.
Thank you for your feedback and thanks for taking the time! Any particular reason regarding the initial hate towards the dropdowns? :)
This seems extremely blank.
This didn't. I'd probably (personally) make this the default view and then make the current program type a little more noticeably active.
It started as looking like a lot of wasted space and then evolved into a really nice way of separating information.
