The new UB website:
questions and answers
The new platform is now a reality
The website of the University of Barcelona has undergone an important change. A change to look outside, with an adapted design to the latest trends, favouring accessibility and with a simplified navigation. This is an image renovation, but mainly a new way to understand communication.
After many years, we tune in with the current graphic criteria: more audiovisual presence (podcasts, videos, photographs and infographics), clear information (texts to connect with the target audience) and an improvement of the user’s experience, with web analytical tools, among other benefits.
There will be many changes, which will be added in successive phases
The renovation of the website will be carried out gradually. First, in July 2020, we have launched the first and second levels of navigation of the four main menus (Study, Research, Participate and The UB), and a secondary menu aimed at target audiences.
In Autumn, the redesign of other websites of the ub.edu universe will be worked on in order to adapt these to the new platform. Also, we will launch the app Soc UB, which will provide the students with a tool to make their study easier.
Last, around summer of 2021, this process of change will finish with the launch of the web.ub.edu domain. Moreover, the websites of the faculties will be adapted and the main search engine as well as the study search engine will be open, which will enable people find the offer on bachelor’s and master’s degrees as well as UB-specific studies in no time.
The website has been designed while thinking about the comfort and needs of the users.
In case you have doubts, we prepared a section of Questions and Answers where you can solve your doubts.
