Student Lifecycle Project

Feedback survey – what you told us

The annual Student Lifecycle Project feedback survey always provides valuable insight for the project team – thank you to the 580 colleagues who completed it this year.

The most prominent theme was a shared concern about our collective readiness to launch. In fact, this – along with a range of other considerations – led to the reschedule of the launch of SITS to manage student records until September 2020. A set of timelines have now been published on the SLP web pages, showing:

  • What is being launched and when
  • When different staff around our University will be involved
  • When you can expect to be trained

Information about what, when and how

Since the survey the priority has been to develop and publish a new timeline to show what is happening when, along with other resources that address the concerns raised in the feedback survey.

We have published a launch timeline, showing:

  • Which new services are being launched and when
  • What the impact will be on staff and students, both on the systems they use and the processes they follow
  • Which services have already been launched

View the full timeline


Involvement opportunities

We have published a new month by month view of what the SLP team is working on, so you can check on the areas we’re working on in any given month.

This page may be of particular interest if you’re a manager, as we have aimed to highlight the teams who are likely to be involved at the different stages to allow for workload planning. More detailed information will be made available to the relevant teams directly throughout the process.

Month by month view

We are also committed to increasing the number of opportunities to get involved in the development of new services, for example show and tells, roadshows and drop ins etc and we will be sharing these via our newsletter and Google Site.


Training and development

We know many colleagues across our University are keen to see how the new services, processes and supporting system are going to work. To give as many people as possible an opportunity to gain early, hands-on experience we will be hosting a first look for each launch as soon as the technical development and testing is complete, but before it is time to start formal training.
