Student system starts

The replacement of the computer system to maintain student records is under way. The project was officially launched last month with the formation of a team of key people drawn from departments and central administration. Departmental heads will get their first view of the fledgling system at a meeting on November 2.

The new £4.4m student information management system (SIMS) should improve administration of student records, including registration and module enrolment.

The current systems are due to be replaced by January 2001, after which functionality will be extended and more people given access.

Staff and students are being encouraged to help develop the system and adapt it to their own needs through a series of special interest groups; contact Tony Cobb for details (
