University Application By iPhone
Thames Valley pioneering new mobile technology
Thames Valley University (TVU) has become the first university in England to have its own iPhone prospectus app.
The application, iUni, is free and features details on TVU's entire portfolio of courses with easy to access information for students and parents.
iUni allows potential students to apply online, go to the website, email through the auto-enquiry function or call TVU directly to learn more.
Young people are used to gathering information on the web, getting their email, listening to music, watching videos, getting directions, or pinpointing exactly where their friends are - anytime and anywhere - and iUni is a natural extension of this.
The introduction of this application sees TVU pioneering the use of mobile technology in the education sector.
With 'Clearing', the process used by students who have not managed to secure a place at university or college for the current year, imminent, prospective students need information at their fingertips to make quick, yet informed, decisions about the next step in their lives. TVU and iUni will give them that opportunity.
