The external website programme

The digital communications team is currently focusing resource on a strategic programme that will improve the core external-facing website, the external website programme (EWP). This programme sits as a high priority within the business transformation portfolio (BTP).

The aim of the external website programme is to standardise, simplify and consolidate the design and content of the University’s core external-facing website.

In order to progress the external website programme in a timely manner our capacity to deliver other change has been reduced. We will provide resource to other change initiatives in order of priority, with first priority given to other BTP initiatives requiring expertise from digital communications.


The digital communications team also supports and maintains the existing University website. Support and maintenance requests should be sent to itservicedesk@st-andrews.ac.uk and marked FAO digital communications.
