This project is of course my own idea although it is based around reviewing NCI it is not entirely original as reviews are very common these days and a review system already exists on the NCI Facebook page however I don’t think this is used frequently and efficiently enough for a member of the public to gather an honest opinion of the college. My idea is unique in the sense that it will be strictly related to the activities within National College of Ireland that will undergo review from sources past and present to help potential students pick the right college when the time comes upon them to select a college to pursue the next stage of their educational career.

With 3rd level education becoming almost mandatory in Ireland these days after completing your leaving cert, colleges and universities are competing against each other to secure new students every year. I feel that by creating a website that allows students to review NCI it will allow the public to have a look at this website and help them build an understanding of what it is like to study here at NCI. I know that most colleges including NCI hold open days to invite potential new students onto campus each year to show the public what they can offer but with a new review system the public it will just add that extra touch to how things operate at NCI.

Although NCI allows users to leave a review on Facebook I don’t think that is an accurate view on what the college is all about. I will attempt to create a platform that will allow students who are past and present to express their honest opinion of the college. Examples of what will be reviewed could potentially be the library facilities or the canteen facilities etc.

This website will prove to be highly beneficial to the college if it was to be made live. As the site will be monitored carefully, I will look to fill the website with as much positive feedback as possible and any negative or irrelevant comments or reviews that are left on the site will have to be examined and perhaps deleted if it paints the college in a bad light. This website will help attract students from across Ireland as well as international students when they can read about all the good things NCI has to offer.

I feel there will be a business case here for NCI to invest into the development of the website if my requirement gathering is efficient and the overall project is a success come the end of my second semester
