Back to the future
FutureMe is a new initiative providing support and information for students looking for higher education opportunities in the North East of England. The scheme is led by the five universities: Newcastle University, The University of Sunderland, Northumbria University, Durham University and Teeside University.
A new scheme requires a new website and Fat Heads, who have previous experience with higher education websites were commissioned to design and develop the site.
The project brief required visitors to be directed to specific areas of the site depending on which target audience they belonged to. A key part of the initiative was to convey the vast number of locations where higher education opportunities are available in the region and this needed to be reflected on the site in the form of a Universities & Colleges directory.
