Interim Module Management
The Interim Module Management system (IMM) provides a way for module information to be stored, amended, accessed and shared across the University.
IMM is part of SITS, the new student system being implemented by the Student Lifecycle Project. IMM replaces UMS (part of CIS) although any changes made in IMM will automatically be applied to UMS to ensure that legacy systems are kept up-to-date in the transitional period.
IMM is considered to be “interim” as the essential functionality it provides will be replaced by a fully-featured curriculum management service in a future Student Lifecycle Project release.
2020/21 Interim Module Management Deadlines
After Monday 3 February 2020, you will not be able to edit your modules in IMM. This is to ensure the diets being built are using the correct and most recent module data. You will still be able to view all your module information and create new modules in IMM for the 2021/22 academic year. You will be also able to check the diets for your department once they have been built for you.
If you need to make any exceptional changes to your module information following Monday 3 February, please provide the relevant information here.
Users should familiarise themselves with the new processes by reading the user guides below and watching the tutorial videos on this page.
You can get face-to-face help with the new processes by contacting the Academic Programmes Office.
Departmental administrators with responsibility for managing module data will need access to IMM.
To gain access to the system, first make sure you understand how to use it, by reading the user guides and watching the video tutorials on this page. If you need to, attend one of the drop-in events to build your confidence.
When you are ready to use IMM, request access by completing this Access Request Form.
Your request will normally be processed within two working days, but if you request access before the system has been released, your request will be approved shortly after the system goes live.
How Module and Programme Codes work in SITS
The Interim Module Management system uses new-format module and programme codes, which have been agreed by University Executive Board.
As the Student Lifecycle Project progresses, new-format codes will begin to appear alongside old-format codes in a variety of systems across the University.
There are several differences between the old and new format codes, both for programmes and modules. This video provides an overview of the key differences you need to be aware of.
