Welcome to the new Wolfson website

30 April, 2012 - 17:19

Last year we launched a website project with two major aims:  to re-design the website and to introduce a user-friendly Content Management System (CMS).  Since the website is so crucial to attracting new students and visiting academics, we wanted to give it a new more contemporary appearance – a process we will probably need to repeat every few years to ensure it stays fresh.  We also wanted to spread the load when it comes to updating information, and make it a quicker and easier process with a more intuitive CMS.
