In XXI century online presence matters a lot. Nowadays, as web technologies are becoming a bigger part of the educational process, the need for educational establishments to have a quality website is constantly growing. Availability of a website provides an opportunity for students to learn more about what the university offers and to compare it with other institutions.

What a university website should look like? The rules are simple and actually they are applicable for any type of web design. First of all, the website must look presentable and attractive, be user-friendly, easy to navigate, accessible, not overloaded with information so it’s always easy to find what you’re looking for. The content must be up to date – it’s extremely important if you don’t want to mislead your potential student who wants to find out more about the institution’s offerings.

In this post we are featuring 20 well-designed educational websites which, we believe, are good examples of implementing of the principles mentioned above.
