The paper "University of New South Wales and University of Technology Sydney Websites" is a great example of a business case study.   University website offers aspiring and already existing students with adequate information relating to the courses they are planning to pursue. It can be concluded that the two websites tend to compare greatly when it comes to their business processes in that they offer the student with the capability of gaining admission to the university through online means and each student is able to know about the university prior to commencing their study. Assumptions One of the major assumptions made is that the online registration system has just been implemented in the organization.

Another major assumption is that I have worked in the university IT department for some time.

Analysis Part A Main business activities on the website The website of the UNSW (University of New South Wales) offers information about the university.

For instance, there is the contact information that can be used to communicate with the organization for example by making a call and also through the various social media sites such as Facebook, pin interest, Instagram, LinkedIn and UNSW YouTube just to mention a few of them.

The website also offers information on the faculties and through these individuals visiting the website are informed on the courses that are available at the university, when the courses commence and the requirements for each of the courses. This assists aspiring students to make their choices in the right way. Additionally, the already existing students are also informed about the courses on offer that semester, when the semester begins and when it ends thus they can register for the next semester on time and avoid any kind of interruptions during the semester. One main business process that shows the main activity on the website is online admissions.

Not all university websites have the function of students to enrol online but the UNSW website seems to be an exception. Through the website one is guided through the process of online admissions which entails the acceptance or deferring of the offer, enrollment, Id cards, IT Services, Orientation and settling in. this business activity ensures that students can enrol for the various programs offered at the university despite their location thus making the registration and admission process easier.

Additionally, there is an enrollment support call centre which main aim is to assist the students who may be experiencing difficulties in the enrollment. Another main activity of the website is that it offers individuals with the opportunity to search and at the same time apply for the various academic programs that are available in the university. (http: //www. futurestudents. unsw. edu. au/find-degree). UNSW recognizes that while a number of students are well aware of what they want in terms of the careers and degrees they want to pursue some are not good at choosing and thus they have developed an approach to assist them in getting thereby offering them the much-needed support.

They have done this by having a ‘ find a degree tool’ which enables students to search the courses they want to pursue based on Faculty, through this they can view all courses under a certain faculty and thus make a selection.
