Research: UK universities need to improve website performance

Many UK universities are still having to operate virtually, with students either spending term time at home or on campus having to learn remotely and open days running online. 

Against this backdrop and in the run up to the return of traditional teaching, we set out to test the websites of 131 UK universities to see how they measure up.

Using industry-standard tools, we have conducted daily repeated tests, over a six-day period, to determined factors that support better online experience, including navigation, load time, image quality and broken links.

During a time where students and parents are shifting to making decisions and gathering information online more than ever before, our research reveals that universities still have room for improvement.
