How could our Student Lifecycle Project (SLP) improve the delivery of exams

(14 February 2018)

The University exam periods require the completion of hundreds of processes, through various IT systems, to deliver the key outcomes associated with the delivery of exams. Staff feedback suggests that some of these processes are time consuming, difficult to track and require repetitive manual input.

So, in 2017, colleagues with expert exam knowledge collaborated through the Student Lifecycle Project’s Design and Discovery phase to review existing exam processes and propose new ones where needed, with the aim of improving the student and staff experience and delivering exams as effectively and efficiently as possible.

  • You can read the full story and find out more about the key changes proposed on StaffNet.

Further SLP information

SLP will deliver a new set of business processes and an operating model which will efficiently and effectively support all our students, from their first contact through to graduation, however they study. It will also provide a technology and information architecture that will define, and support, the activities of the University for the next five to ten years.

The Project is being delivered in a phased approach between now and September 2019. It is now in the integration stage and will shortly enter the review period, when senior colleagues will review the scope of SLP and the changes it will deliver.
