When Swansea University decided the time was right to revamp and update its website, it turned to Weltch Media to help create the content.
Our expertise in writing and editing, and our in-depth knowledge of the higher education sector made us the ideal choice to work on this major project over several months.
Now the university has been awarded Gold in the prestigious AVA Digital Awards for the redeveloped site. There were more than 2,500 entries for this year’s award across 25 countries, and only 14 winners were awarded Gold in the UK.
With experience of similar projects at other universities in England and Wales, we pulled together a small team of writers to work through the hundreds of course-profile pages and other parts of the site.
The key was to provide lively, accessible content, in-keeping with the university’s style guidelines, and meeting the specific needs of individual academic schools and departments, while working to tight deadlines.
The university’s web development manager, Nicola Parry, said: “We have been delighted with the service from Weltch Media. This has been a huge project, and creating content for the new site was a major task.
“From our initial meetings with Weltch Media, we were confident that we were in safe hands, and once we got under way, it was so reassuring to know we had such a professional team providing the content, so we could focus on other aspects of creating the site.
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Weltch Media for any similar project – their calm and professional approach and delivery to deadline was much appreciated by colleagues throughout the university.”
