Website of the Week: StudentBuddies.com

It may only be Monday but I still reckon it’s time for another Website of the Week!

This time we’ve got StudentBuddies.com, an ‘essential guide to University in Scotland’. To start with, design wise there’s a lot of cohesion and continuity to this site.

The homepage directs new users to pages where they can ask questions about uni life; learn about how to apply; get help with funding; and read a guide to university life. The homepage makes great use of the HTML widget, including a Twitter feed and an RSS feed from the forum.

Even though its just a couple of months old the website has already racked up over 8,000 visitors.

Website Address:


When did you build your website?
