Leading design work for Studyinfo.fi online service

The Finnish National Board of Education FNBE is the responsible agency for primary and secondary education as well as for adult education and training in Finland.

FNBE has been the administrator for 19 separate systems for applying for studies online. With a large-scale development project FNBE combined all of them into a new Studyinfo.fi service that serves both the people applying for the studies and those who create content for the site and process the applications.

Cresense worked on the service between 2012-2014 and was responsible for the design of Studyinfo.fi user interface, the related UI guidelines and all the usability and accessibility work related to the service.

Studyinfo.fi service has been taken into use in three languages. It combines all education information in Finland and enables electronic applications to all post-basic levels of education. The administration side of the service handles information about studies and education providers and processing the applications. More than 200 000 applications are submitted and processed in the service each year.

Studyinfo.fi has been mentioned as a positive reference in usability and user experience in multiple occasions.
