Supporting higher education to shape student experiences and expectations

British universities have gained a reputation for academic and research excellence. However, higher education institutions need to adapt to the digital revolution sweeping through the private sector and improve online learning resources to meet the evolving needs of students and faculty members.

Our approach

At Perago, we recognise the complex environment facing universities today, from evolving regulations to resource and funding constraints.

Leveraging our experience in higher education projects and guided by human-centred design principles, we've assembled a team of experts to help universities develop impactful programmes that enhance student success and satisfaction.

Our experience has taught us that there are three immediate challenges for universities:


Many universities rely heavily on government funding and tuition fees. However, with increasing competition and uncertainty over funding, many institutions must find new ways to generate revenue.


Universities compete with one another to attract the best and brightest students, both domestically and internationally. This requires effective marketing and recruitment strategies to showcase the university's strengths and unique features.

Digital transformation and infrastructure

With digital technology's growing importance in education, universities must continue to invest in and develop their digital infrastructure and online learning resources to meet the needs of students and faculty.

Perago O's in different styles

We have supported higher education institutions by:

Developing a value proposition

A strong value proposition could also help to align the university's mission and vision with the needs and expectations of its stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, and the wider community. A compelling value proposition can lead to improved student and talent attraction.

Providing strategic collaboration

We know how collaboration between different skill sets can benefit the economy. By supplying the workforce with diverse talents and experiences and seamless transitions from academia, we can support the regional economy and create business growth.

Student experience

We recognise the importance of supporting student well-being, promoting diversity and inclusion to boost student engagement, and providing innovative digital resources.

Place shaping

Supporting the development of university campuses to help attract a diverse set of prospective student groups. We consider and develop a mix of physical space and its relationship with the local town and economy to design digital and online offerings to support hybrid interactions with the university.
