Student Lifecycle Project launch update
Provost and Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Gill Valentine updates us on the progress of the Student Lifecycle Project (SLP) and new launch dates.
"After thorough consideration, the decision has been made to reschedule the launch of SITS (the commercial student records management system for storing and managing student information, used by over 60 per cent of universities in the UK) from September 2019 to September 2020.
"There are three reasons for this decision:
"This decision does not mean the work on the project is being paused or will incur any additional cost. The team will continue to work to their current technical deadlines, which presents considerable benefits for all of us:
"An immediate priority for the SLP team is to publish a new timeline to show what is happening when. This will happen in early May, and will be available on the SLP web pages. We will let you know when this is available.
"I would like to extend my personal thanks to all members of staff who have contributed to the project so far. While rescheduling is disappointing, it means we have time to capitalise on all the hard work done by so many of you. I know it is not always easy balancing the demands of your day-to-day job with work on this project but it is vital we continue to work together to make this a success for the University.
"If you have any questions at all about this, please do get in touch or take a look at our FAQs."
