Student Digital Experience Standards

Student Digital Experience Standards are designed to encourage project teams to adopt new skills, tools and processes aligned to industry best practice in the fields of user experience research and design.

Why we need the Standards

Using the Digital Experience Standards will improve the student digital experience by promoting a consistent, measurable approach to human-centred project delivery.


Nine core Principles underpin the Standards. These are overarching statements that express how we should approach a digital project.

Process overview

You should prepare for using the Standards prior to a project beginning, measure them in the execution phase, and share your experiences with the UX Service team.

Measuring the Standards

The Standards Measures lay out in detail how to assess your project.
