SMS Project sponsors, Kerry Holling & Michael Burgess talk to us about who will be affected by the change of our Student Management System and their messages for all future users.
What is the Student Management System?
Student management systems (SMS) are IT systems and associated processes that support the management of all phases in the student lifecycle including: admissions, enrolment, student records, student finance, student support, course and unit management, assessment and examination, student progression, and graduation and all the associated reporting including legislative and compliance requirements. Student management systems integrate with other existing systems such as timetabling and student placement.
An effective student management system contributes to every interaction with the University being positive, and also supports staff in providing the best service possible to students. The student will be clear and confident about the admission and enrolment process, able to make good decisions about their academic journey and feel successful and fulfilled at their graduation.
