From this week, prospective students will experience a vastly improved UNE website.
The DUX (Digital User Experience) Entry Requirements Project has gone live with enhancements in the Prospective Student Catalogue (PSC), the UNE Course Handbook and in the CourseLoop system.
“My sincerest thanks to the DUX project team and colleagues across so many areas of the University who have contributed so effectively to the many activities required for this implementation,” said Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Simon Evans.
“I am extremely grateful for the tremendous effort and support, and recognise the combined efforts of teams across UNE who have worked together to make this happen in time for the opening of admissions today.”
This implementation is an integral component of UNE’s Future Fit strategy to deliver an exceptional student journey. It aligns UNE more closely with TEQSA’s requirement for admission transparency. It optimises the University’s web presence and delivers an efficient digital experience which is easy to navigate and personalised to the user.
What has changed?
Admission rules and entry requirements have been reframed using clearer language to improve the reader’s understanding of their eligibility and requirements for admission to their preferred UNE courses. These changes are now visible in CourseLoop, PSC and UNE Course Handbook.
A new international/domestic toggle is now visible in PSC when an undergraduate or postgraduate coursework course is available to international students, allowing the user to personalise admission and entry requirements to their residency status. (Higher degree research courses do not have a toggle as entry requirements are the same for both cohorts.)
Improved integration between CourseLoop, UNE Course Handbook and PSC has gone live, reducing the time taken for data transfer, improving error and exception handling.
View these informative DUX Project go-live briefing videos, created to provide you with the detail you need, to support prospective and current students as they navigate the changes in PSC and UNE Course Handbook from 1 August.
The project is providing transition support until training is held in late August/early September for staff in Schools and Faculties who maintain admissions information in CourseLoop.
