Potential students can chat by academic level, area of study, home country at University of Glasgow
Chat features are common now at college and university websites… what’s not so common is the ability for potential students to select a chat partner at the same degree level in the same academic area that interests them and from the same home country.
This seems an especially strong feature for recruiting international students.
How popular is the service? The university reports that “Since July 2018, 133450 questions have been answered by our Students.”
Speed on mobile… not so great
Google PageSpeed Insights measures the time to first view on a mobile phone at a 4.0 seconds. Time to full interactivity is a slow at 16.2 seconds.
