The Telegraph Clearing App
During my time at Human Software I had the pleasure of working wth the Telegraph media team for three consecutive years. Over those three years we focused on creating an app that offered students who found themselves in the clearing process an easy way to search and discover courses with as least stress as possible. Our aim was to create a friendly and familiar UI that would guide students along their journey.
We wanted to give students a way to feel prepared for Clearing. We hoped that allowing them to set up searches and research institutions and courses before clearing began would ease the stress on the day.
We encouraged users to fill out a profile giving information about their education and desired areas of study, this would allow us to use this information to highlight courses and institutions that match their interests.
We spent a lot of time concentration on making the search itself as user friendly as possible. By displaying all the possible ways to search (such as subject, institution, location) on the first page, we allowed the user to choose their own search path.
